Random photos from last week....


Sunset at the old lighthouse pier at Sandside, creels stacked ready for use.


Above the old lighthouse pier....


Heading home


Sometimes I'm too lazy to get off the sofa to go outside to take photos.... haha!



Glowering sky above the sunset....


My little heat seeking Princess....


When not soaking up the sun she is on her pedestal as befits a Princess...


Silage bales in the field


Big skies - big clouds...



Reflections...



Yarrow....



I had my first socially distanced visitors this week.  We stayed outdoors, and it was such aglorious day we wandered down to the coral beach and there was quite a haul of groatie buckies - though I only found 4... (not pictured)


My guests take groatie buckie hunting very seriously.... sometimes they are hard to find, and other times they just throw themselves at you (apparently - I have yet to experience that!).  But here is one presented nicely on the seaweed!



Guests brought along homebakes too!  Date cake and brownies..... Most are in the freezer to be carefully rationed...


Flowers in the garden...


Evening Primrose.... (the yellow one)


Self heal - self sown in the borders.  I'm delighted!


Hens.... hmmm white hen on the bottom perch is causing me some concern.  She must be between 9 or 10 years old, is blind in one eye, and going senile.  She is happy though and eating, and loves to feel the sun on her back and still goes out with the others.  Unfortunately she doesn't always manage to find her way home so I have to go out each evening hunting for her....


Here she is -Henny Penny.... saying hi to Button.  She's become very bold and cheeky in her dotage.


She loves rootling among the trees...


And here she is with Pesky Hen who is equally cheeky....


But when all the others are already on their roost for the evening, she is still wandering about.  Spot the hen.... yes half way across a field... I had to go over and collect her and gently carry her back to the hen house.  She mumbled and muttered the whole time! She is all bones under the beautiful soft feathers but she also feels very warm!


And some days are headless chicken days!
