Five on Friday


Joining in this week with  Amy and Five on Friday.  Click on the link at the bottom of this post to find others who are joining in too.

Here are five simple things that have made me smile this week

 1.  The hanging teapot lights at Middleport Pottery which we visited when we walked down the canal from Westport lake earlier in the week


 2.  Being in Derbyshire - it was a lovely day on Wednesday, quite warm and just the right day for a lovely walk around Castleton in Derbyshire.

 3.  Geese - on the side of the lake at Westport Lake, not sure what breed of goose these are, they look a little like a cross between the greylags and the white geese that can be seen on the lake.

4. Evening sunsets - just beautiful but you have to be quick to catch them as they change colour and density in seconds.


5.  Frogs - on Wednesday when we got home from Castleton we counted 24 frogs in the pond, the croaking sound could be heard in the house and from next door - are we the only pond around?  I think so!  Anyway we now have some frog spawn too.

  1. Great things Rosie!! I especially love those teapots, they would be amazing as a centrepiece in a coffee shop wouldn't they - or if you were cool enough to have them in a kitchen - I am not cool enough for that! The sunset is so lovely, it is very calming! Thank you so much for joining in. I hope that you have a great weekend! xx

  3. What beautiful photos. We have just a few frogs in our tiny pond, but no frogspawn yet. It seems late this year to me. Hopefully soon. Castleton looks like a lovely place to visit. I haven't ever been there, but I do love Derbyshire.

    1. Yes, we thought so too - there are many white geese there and grey lags come in from elsewhere. I think they have more grey lag in them that canada goose:)
