Just a short post today but here’s my entry for The Gallery run by Tara over at Sticky Fingers. This week’s theme is Nature. What a great opportunity to go for a walk in the countryside with the boys, enjoy the sunshine and take some photographs, or so I thought. The pesky rain had other ideas and has been chucking it down all afternoon. Unfortunately I couldn’t get much ‘nature’ inspiration from our alternative afternoon activity – a playdate at my friend’s house (enjoyable as it was!) – so I’ve had to settle for a photo I took on holiday in Derbyshire a couple of years ago.
We went in Spring and stayed in a beautiful cottage. The trees were full of blossom, birds were singing, newborn lambs were in the fields and we were in the company of good friends. This photo was taken on a walk around Chatsworth House.
On the way home, a pheasant took a nose dive through the front grille of our brand new car, resulting in a broken radiator. It’s probably fair to say that my husband was not quite so appreciative of ‘nature’ on that day as the rest of us, but we still had a great time!
