Afternoon off

This is what the sky was like today.


So this is where I went after lunch.

And this is what I did there.


And this is what I saw on the way home.



Which all made for an exceptionally pleasant afternoon.

And now, of course, we'll all want afternoons like that, and sky that colour, and hollyhocks that tall . . .

Beautiful...

Having only recently discovered your blog, can I just say here and now how incredibly jealous I am of your afternoon off? Those pictures summed up exactly what I would have my eye-teeth to do yesterday. Instead, here I am, in the office. Bah.

Stunning pictures! Hope you enjoy the Clare Wigfall. I just got a copy, and am desperate to start it!

That blue is amazing - and not a trace of cloud!

You do take some wonderful pictures - it's so interesting to see a part of the world I've never been to.

Hope you enjoyed your afternoon off - I'm looking forward to a completely relaxed weekend!

D - I'll be paying for my laziness bigtime today, I'm afraid!

Kim - thanks, it was!

Kirsty - Hi - don't be too jealous, it was a rare enough event and I'm chained to my desk again today. The Wigfall leapfrogged straight to the top of my TBR pile and the first story (which is as far as I've got) certainly didn't disappoint. I've a huge backlog of books to review, but I'll post my thoughts about it here soon.

Just letting you know Juliet that I have given you an "award". See http://paradise-mysteries.blogspot.com/2008/07/my-first-award.html which explains all.

I don't know if i mentioned in a previous comment but i was a professional photographer for over 12 years before i lost my studio, even though i'm a serious book addict i come to your site to see your pictures. I love the play by play of your day you share with your readers and so much in envy of you to have such beautiful scenery. I love the pictures you take for your viewers.

Kerrie - thank you for my 'award'! I'm very honoured, given how peripheral crime fiction is to this blog. I've learned so much from yours, and it's certainly added to my TBR pile!

Photoquest - thanks - it is most flattering that you give my photos a second look, since, as I often make it clear, they are merely 'point, click' pics taken on a very primitive camera (and sometimes mobile phone). I regard them more as 'diary entries' than as 'photographs' myself! For some truly great photos of this area by a proper photographer, see http://www.weepingash.co.uk/index.html
