ELECTRICITY (and other things)
Carmi's Thematic Challenge this week is "Electricity. I couldn't think of anything more imaginative than this one of a pylon! Nearly fell over backwards taking it one of the sunny days we had this summer!
But I thought I would post another picture of the fir trees on the pitch and putt course in the Park. They are beautiful at the moment, a real orange, and looked so lovely in the early sun one morning.
Alas, nearly all the needles have come off in the wind and rain we had last night and today. Larches are the only deciduous conifer (native to the UK) here, and I love them at all seasons. The first bright green tufts in the Spring, the lovely dark green against a summer sky, and the orange of the autumn.
This might be the last blog for a while as I have eye surgery tomorrow. Its a simple cataract operation, but it does mean that I can't see with my spectacles and I can't see without them!
Hopefully all will be perfect once I can get my new spectacles, but I do crave for a bit of reading ability once my eye has settled down. I can't do without books! I will ha ve to go and investigate the audio book section in the Library!
