I've been very conscious that my last few posts have been quite cold and grey mainly because of the weather and the places we have been walking, so I made my mind up that my next post was going to contain some colour. It was quite hard to find on the grey days that we have had lately but here are a few photos taken where I was able to find that elusive element.
A few days ago I found this pretty fabric - just right for covering a small cushion that I've had for ages. I've decided to leave the red tablecloth bought for Christmas on the kitchen table as it adds warmth and colour whilst it is still cold and grey outside.
This handsome chap was wandering around the bird feeders at Consall Country Park where we went for a walk yesterday- he came quite close to us to see if we had anything he could eat - we hadn't, but the warden came out at that moment with a shovel full of grain which the pheasant had to share with about twenty hungry ducks.
We woke up yesterday to the most beautiful red sky. Well, it was a warning as by lunchtime it was snowing.
