Tuesday Photo Challenge: Toys

My grandson picks out a tune (kind of…) on the new toy keyboard that he’s just got for Christmas.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Field

we bought our house in France with two fields attached – about seven acres in total. The first time we saw them, this piece of agricultural ‘kit’ was parked up just inside the gate.

I believe it’s a mobile feed dispenser for sheep (our neighbour, who had a flock of sheep at the time, used the fields for grazing). Sadly, it was gone by the time we completed the purchase.

Perhaps it went to a museum although, given the notable dearth of sentimentality among those who actually have to live off the land, it could just as easily have been converted to firewood.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Wind

This coming weekend sees the annual ‘Estevol’ air show at nearby Blond. It was cancelled last year due to strong winds and thunderstorms, although the weather seems set fair this time around.

A couple of years ago I saw this drone lurking behind the windsock:

I couldn’t help but be struck by the vibrant colours of this slide in a childrens’ playground in Abu Dhabi.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Treat

Last Friday, two days before our twin grandsons’ birthday, was also their last day in the prep, before moving up to senior school in September. So naturally Granma of the unlimited talents rustled up some treats fro the boys to share with their classmates.

There were even a few left over (for quality control purposes, obviously).

Tuesday Photo Challenge: New

These paper wasps seem to have got the idea that they can build a new nest right outside the back door of my salon. Sorry, guys – that’s not going to happen.
