Hello Lovelies,Oh dear I missed last weeks posting. I did think that may happen, but never mind, I'm back this week with some images from the past seven days.
1 ♥ Melting Snow. Yes we got another visit from "The Beast" last weekend. I was working so it was stressful making the journeys needed on treacherous roads. Thankfully it did not last long and by midweek there was very little evidence left. My enthusiasm for snowy weather has run out for a while now.
Happily Robin is still going strong despite the icy conditions.
2 ♥ Walking Somewhere New. On Thursday my walking group journeyed to Market Bosworth and enjoyed an eight mile walk through the surrounding countryside.
Our route even passed through the site of the Battle of Bosworth Field.
There was a heritage centre and lots more to see. Plus the countryside setting was rather lovely.
Here we crossed The Battlefield Line
This sign made me smile :0)
Before we returned to our starting point via the Ashby canal.
3 ♥ Reading about Walking Somewhere New Oh dear I seem to collect secondhand walking guides at the moment. I just love looking at them for inspiration and daydreaming about ticking off every walk one day.
I know that's highly unlikely to happen, but you never know. How wonderful would it be to say you had explored so much of our beautiful country on foot.
The hand painted maps with little illustrations particularly pleased me in this book. Oh look. It's the walk we just did...well pretty much. I marked that one as done. Just 119 to go then :0)
4 ♥ Simple Baking. My economy version of THIS Tea Loaf is the easiest baking I know.
I use ordinary tea and "value" mixed fruit :0)
Lunchtime guarded by a lion :0)
Another view of the bridge.
It's only looking at them now I have noticed all the birds...Redwings and Fieldfare. These two breeds often seem to hang out together.
After a while I headed back into the town. Ooooh, another lovely bridge.
So many churches and interesting buildings to see.
And a street market. Can't resist the flower stall.
More riverside wandering.
Nearly time to go, just time for some of my homemade Tea Loaf before meeting up with mum.
It was great to explore and on the way home we made a small detour to see a view I had spotted online whilst researching the area.
The sun even broke through a little to illuminate this gorgeous view in the village of Easton on the Hill. I think it's as nice as any stately home...and nicer than some.
It's the jumble of rooftops, the church tower backdrop and the lovely warm stone. Sigh......It's my favourite picture of this week.
6 ♥ A colourful WIP. I'm sharing this as an incentive to finally do something with these squares. They are a Log Cabin Granny, inspired by THIS stunning project. I don't think they are bad but they are a bit over the top. By next week I WILL have done something with them....I hope you will hold me to that lovelies.
7 ♥ Sunday Sunshine Every other Sunday morning I walk with a friend. Today I drove us to THIS country park as I wanted to see the blue sky reflections . This is my second favourite picture of the week :0)
I do believe there is a touch of green in the trees :0)
8 ♥ Spring Flowers. The Hyacinths I planted in a pot by the front door are finally beginning to flower. They look extra pretty with my Primula from Stamford market.
