Photo Scavenger Hunt - February

I've just been checking back and it was May 2012 when I last participated in a Photo Scavenger Hunt and I've missed doing it and looking for each month's photos;  so this month I'm joining in again with greenthumb at Made with Love  just click on the link for other participants.

Flowers

    A Hellebore plant in the kitchen garden at Rode Hall taken on our visit on17th February

Love

This Willow decoration which had been on display over Christmas near the lake at Trentham was out again for Valentine's day.

Number

A huge, constantly moving number on a wall in the courtyard at the Shrewsbury Museum which we visited on 11th February.  We asked a volunteer what it was for and apparently it is the ever growing total of the world's population.

Something Beautiful

Snowdrops at Rode Hall - so perfect, so beautiful.

Your favourite colour

A bowl of lavender at Rode Hall.  I love all blues through, mauves and lavenders I think this bowl and its contents gives an idea of those.

Bird

Female mallard walking on an icy lake at Trentham Gardens, taken on 3rd February.

On the road

Road works on the Stanley Matthews Way in Stoke-on-Trent just past the football stadium nearly opposite the Screwfix depot.

Tap

In the walled kitchen gardens at Rode Hall

Price

Local eggs for sale at the Brown and Green food shop in the shopping village at Trentham Gardens.

Heart

A Willow Heart on the Lakeside Walk at Trentham Gardens

A corner of your House

A corner of our conservatory

Whatever you want

The ruins of Moreton Corbet Castle, near Shawbury, Shropshire behind winter trees taken on a damp, grey afternoon on our way back from Shrewsbury.

    1. The ducks were very funny - and the swans were tapping the ice with their beaks to weaken it and then flopping on it to move foreward - very clever:)

  2. A lovely selection of photos Rosie especially the duck.

  3. I remember you doing the photo scavenger hunt. I can't believe it was so long ago. I did a few myself and found it fun seeking out the different topics. I really like the Hellebore photo - I have never grown those. The snowdrops look like rabbits with floppy ears to me! Your conservatory corner is perfect! x

  5. Oh Rosie you have got Ben's eggs too! Much cheaper 'on the road' - although you would have to drive to Loggerheads to get some! Jane x

    1. Yes, i bet they are cheaper at source - I love to see the hens in that field at Loggerheads - sometimes the hens used to be out on the grass verge but I haven't seen that lately perhaps the fence has been mended:)

  6. Glad you have returned, and with such a great selection of photos, as well. What an fascinating number presentation ~ it must be a bit mind boggling to see such high numbers increasing...Loved the photos of the willow creations. Love the muted mauves and blues- think I can smell the fragrance of the lavender from here. Your conservatory corner looks inviting :)

  9. Hi, Rosie! I joined the hunt after you stopped, so you're new to me! Welcome! I thoroughly enjoyed your photos. I love how your favorite colors run through your whole post The castle ruins are so unlike anything where I live on the high plains of Colorado. I love seeing the world through the eyes of others. Thanks for sharing such an awesome collection!
