So what have I been photographing this week? Out and about quite a few days as for all it has been cold enough here to produce both hailstones and frost up the car enough I need to send out my automatic car defroster before work this morning, this has balanced nicely with clear sunny, if chilly days.
I bought these the other day for the grandchildren and love the colours of them in the sun. Thought they were a great buy at fifty pence each in Morrisons. Your never too big to get pleasure out of blowing bubbles and these work brilliantly.
Sadly I had a phone call to say Bob not coming up today as he not well. Went up to visit our friend at the cottage, and him and another friend were amusing themselves with Bobs Tonka trucks. They had cut a pile of logs to fit into the back of one and were playing loading it with his digger. This is a picture of my friend taking a picture of the trucks. You can see his camera in his hands.
The swan is back down the river, laying eggs on a very precarious island. Last years due to the high river her eggs got washed away. Here she is getting back onto her three eggs.
Up visiting a friend and saw the brown pigeon in amongst the normal coloured ones.
Went off today to take the carpet cleaner up to daughter No 3's new flat. The view is not stunning, the car park of the now demolished Safeway. But just to the right is a twenty four hour Tesco, a bus stop into Ayr to visit us and other family and just out of sight on the left is her place of work. Home in two minutes or less.
It started off her bright and sunny, if a bit chilly this morning, but it got duller and duller and chillier and chillier until we got hails stones. Come on it is less than a week to the start of May for goodness sake.
Another bright clear afternoon and despite the cold wind it made for a pleasant walk along the river. You were going to get a picture of the trees and blue sky reflected in the river, until these two helicopters flew by so you are getting them instead.
