We've all been busy this week.

In our different ways, of course.

Layers: mortar, latex, latex, mortar.

A proper windowsill.


Lakes, trees.

Tackling obstacles.

Lunch in a funny little place, once a mill (and, we were told, mentioned in the Domesday Book).

They were slender folk in 1085....

Rolling countryside.



More rolling countryside.

Rolling steep countryside.

And more old buildings.

And at last it's the weekend, and we don't have to get up early for the builders.

Beautiful - and all with the new camera I hope!?

You didn't mention the really important "busy-ness" - camera practice!

Looking good, Rachel.

Bow Street Flowers said...

you ARE loving your new camera! thanks for all the pics.

Noelle the dreamer said...

Oh what a lovely 'stroll' I had with all those shots!
Looking good Flossie (You have 'un petit air', a 'je ne sais quoi' and thus you have become my favourite amongst Rachel's little family but shhhtt, don't tell anyone!)
Wishing Rachel and friend a peaceful weekend (me thinks you earned it!).

the veg artist said...

Wow! You all need a rest after that, especially Tosca and Flossie! Looking good, though!

Dartford Warbler said...

Wonderful West Country walks - thank you!

I hope the utility room /cats dining room will soon be finished.

I love the photo of Flossie wriggling under the gate....

You have settled into a lovely spot. Love the "resting" pics!

The new camera is much in evidence I see. You've made some lovely images with it. Animals resting is so funny. Your utility room is coming along in leaps and bounds. Is your bathroom finished yet?

Lovely ..really lovely a nice, long, virtual walk

We have over a foot of snow, it's 7.7 f and we're going skiing in an hour (Royal we....not me! I've a date with a mug of chocolate in the Chalet)

All those wonderful photos and waht do I like best .... the bold Flossie squeezing under the gate! Himself is impressed with, first, the tanking, and second, all you practising with the new camera!

Dan said...

I much prefer your idea of busy, rather than the builders. Gorgeous pictures - you live in such a lovely part of the world.

Debbie said...

Loads of lovely pictures - do you have a new camera??!!

rachel said...

Oh dear, I have to confess that not all these pictures are mine - some are Tricia's, taken with her ever-so-grand professional camera and powerful zoom, while I get to grips with the standard lens on my new camera. Once I've got the hang of it, I'll play with the zoom too!

Elizabeth Musgrave said...

Ah yes, everyone else has said it! New camera at the ready! Did not realise you were near to Dulverton. And love the thin medieval types.

Pam said...

I would rather be you than be a builder. Or, at the moment, me. Lovely pics.

Sorry for this complete diversion from the topic, but... I see you have "Tales from a Cottage Garden" on your blog list. I also follow that blog, have for a long time now, and just now when I tried to read it, it was blocked as "invitation only".

I'm pretty sure this is a mistake, she was maybe trying to upgrade her blog, or block spammers or something, but I have no way to contact her to request an invite.

If, by some stroke of luck, you have a way to contact her, could you request that she come to my blog and send me an invite?
