If anyone knows the name of these flowers I would love to hear! The blooms are the size of large oriental poppies and grow on a shrub with small green leaves.

UPDATE: Thanks to Cathy, Cee and Eliza we have discovered it is a Rock Peony.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,

Wordless Wednesday: Colour-Crochet

Local grandmother Caroline Mackay took up crochet as a form of rehabilitation (after suffering a stroke) and has adorned post boxes around town to spread some cheer this Easter.

Some of you may remember last year’s Festive Sparkle post, featuring her Christmas decorations.

Just as Tina invited us to an Odds and Ends Lens-Challenge, I came across this beach art installation made from driftwood, rope, netting, a creel, leaves and berries, sea shells and seaweed, covered in sand.

I am taking a short blogging break to focus on a nature writing project and will be back on Wednesday 16 March 2022.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday and a peaceful week ahead,
