Where's Dave Oy with his brilliant and different top draw photos.

Ann,
perhaps he is still recuperating.

If John Constable had lived locally,you can bet he would have painted this scene.

'A lovely still summer morning, Peter - it's going to be hot later. Just the morning for tench'.

Do you not think! What would have happened if you fell in the water and got stranded more pressure on our NHS staff. You should be staying indoors at your age.

Well I really like this one. Great shapes and texture. I love ponds.

Comment by: irene roberts on 8th June 2020 at 08:26

That's lovely. So peaceful. I love dappled sunlight through trees and I wonder how long that big tree at the front of the photo has been there watching over the pond and probably giving shelter to insects and animals? Alan (on Vancouver Island), I have been waiting ages for you to comment on p-a-d! The screensaver on my computer changes regularly and a couple of weeks ago there was a photo of the sea at night on Vancouver Island and it was SO beautiful. I have been itching to tell you and hoping every day that you would appear and knew you would eventually.

You can almost feel the coolness in the shade of the trees - the little pond reminds me of tadpoling when we were children.

Lovely photo Mick - thank you.

A tree trunk blocking the view of a puddle.

At least the bike isn't propping the old tree up...it looks a nice quiet place to find some solitude..

So nice and quite for Shevington.
Is it really Shevington?

I can see a lion with s squint on the front of the old oak tree,I always find tree bark amazing with what it come up with.

A great picture Mick.

Comment by: Stan on 8th June 2020 at 15:48

Mick, you said yesterday to Graham not to daft things...well you could fall in that very small pond, even though its very small and hurt yourself, you can put pressure on our NHS team.

I see him clearly Sydney. Also a knight in armour carrying a shield seemingly dangling from the lion's mouth.

Comment by: Philip G. on 8th June 2020 at 18:47

I can see a woman looking sideways as she wraps herself beneath a shawl; the bulbous thing to the right of the moggy hole being her clenched left-hand.

Comment by: Poet on 8th June 2020 at 22:11

Good heavens Pip , I see her too. The poor lass looks mortified

Comment by: Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 9th June 2020 at 00:43

Irene. Thank you for your post. I must tell you that Vancouver Island is the closest place to Heaven on Earth.

Take care. Alan

Comment by: irene roberts on 9th June 2020 at 12:50

Glad you saw my comment Alan. You take care too. xxxxx

I would say New Zealand is closer, not just because if bigger and nicer but because there is not one wild animal that will kill.

Comment by: Terry on 12th June 2020 at 11:07

Are there no wild animals in New Zealand zoo's, Mick?
