The end of another month and time for for another scavenger hunt. Thanks as always to Greenthumb of Made with Love for organising the hunt.
B is for...: Bee!
10am : 14 June, writing a shopping list whilst having breakfast.
Spoon : A couple of spoons from my Mum's collection. She told me that the one on the left is called an Apostle spoon. The one on the right belonged to her Auntie Maggie and we think it's at least 40 years old. For those of you who can't read upside down, it says Gwrych Castle.
Puppet : I used to have a penfriend who lived near Nice, France. When I visited, her parents took us over the border into Italy to a restaurant in Sanremo. I assume that the restaurant was called Pinocchio's as the owner gave me a small one like these as a souvenir. I still have it and was going to take a photo for this category but decided to show you this one from a market stall in Verona instead.
You again : Great crested grebe on our local lake. It doesn't live here but just pops by on a regular basis, usually on its own but sometimes with a friend.
Water : Our local lake.
Habitat : My favourite little patch which always teems with wildlife.
Soccer : A few lads, a patch of grass and a ball and you have the ingredients for a game of football.
Calm : Our local lake again. It literally was the calm before the storm as I could hear thunder behind me as I was taking the photo. It was the week of the most spectacular thunderstorms with the most lightning I've ever seen and some places having a month's worth of rain in an hour!
Man made : Sculpture of a man, made by a man in a local town.
Open : Shop sign.
Steam : One of the processes during the making of beer at Robinson's brewery in Stockport. A few of us went on a guided tour at the beginning of the month. Highly recommended. That's the tour not the beer - I hate beer!
