The word prompts for this month's Scavenger Photo Hunt which is organised by Kate at 'I Live I Love I Craft' blog are as follows
All my photos are from my archives as I haven't been out and about very much this month to collect some new ones.
Sound/Hearing - this photograph was taken at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire in October 2012. The sculpture was one for four from an exhibition entitled 'Hear, Here' they were all to do with hearing the sounds of and connecting with the wildlife around the estate. The one above was for hearing the sounds of insects buzzing in the air.
Smell/Scent - the photo above was taken in May 2017 at Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire. The display was part of an exhibition about the use of herbs and flowers both for medicinal purposes, to induce calm and sleep and also for keeping illness and germs at bay. Sweet herbs were strewn on the floors and bowls of potpourri and nosegays used to good effect.
Feel/Touch - the feel of the sand on my bare feet the warmth of the shells as I lift them up and place them on the sand. Photo taken last July on Morfa Bychan beach just along the coastal path from Borth-y-Gest, Porthmadog, Wales.
Taste - all the wonderful tastes of produce from the summer garden. Tomatoes, potatoes, courgettes and plums. Basil, parsley, sage and lavender. I include lavender in taste as it is delicious in cakes or scones. Photo from a couple of summers ago.
See/Sight - from the turret window of Plas Mawr you can see the roof tops of the town and the castle in the distance and what a wonderful sight it was. Photo taken at Conwy, North Wales in May 2017.
My own choice - my first though was that this photograph could be used in the smell/scent category as the smell or scent of bluebells in the woods is so wonderful. It could also have been used for see/sight as the sight of carpets of bluebells is one of the wonders of Spring. It won't be too long before we see them again. This photo was taken last April in Hem Heath Woods, Stoke-0n-Trent.
