I'm sorry that I didn't manage a Five on Friday post last week or a Monday Miscellany yesterday. I sort of ran out of time and inclination to blog about anything as I've been feeling a bit low and uninspried for some reason. However, I have managed to complete the list of this month's Scavenger Hunt, as most of the photos were taken when we were in Wales at the beginning of the month. So once again I'm joining in with the September Photo Scavenger Hunt kindly organised by greenthumb at Made with Love just click on the link to find other participants.
Lovely wool blankets in the gift shop at Harlech Castle in Wales.
A row of keys tied to a rope on the Arboretum island at Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire. It was part of a display called 'The Key to my Heart' - I imagined once one person had attached a key others would repeat the process. Much like the love locks you see on bridges.
I struggled with this topic but then a little group of about six long tailed tits visited our feeders and almost completely demolished the fat balls in them. I thought this would pass for greedy although they weren't really greedy just hungry.
Flowers in St Hywyn's Church at Aberdaron on the Llyn Peninsula in Wales.
The little Gloucester Old Spot piglets in the walled garden at Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire had curly tails.
It felt quite adventurous to climb up the tower at Harlech Castle and gaze out at the wonderful views from there.
A train on the railway line which runs along the coast in Wales. View of the train from the top of Harlech Castle.
The whirpool of light in the sound gallery at Porth y Swnt visitor centre, Aberdaron, Gwynedd, Wales.
A triagular display plinth at the new Wedgwood Visitor Centre, Barlaston, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.
View from The Deep gallery at Porth y Swnt visitor centre, Aberdaron. The Deep was set in darkness and swirling mists and had a very dream like quality about it.
The early morning sun shining though the window of Plas Glyn-y-Weddw, Llanbedrog, Gwynedd, Wales - we'd popped into the gallery for morning coffee before walking along the beach.
Whatever you Want
We found this unusual sand sculpture on the beach at Borth-y-Gest. It reminded me of an ancient burial mound but also a motte and bailey castle with the wooden castle structure missing. It also looked a bit like an alien space ship. What do you think?
