I missed this last month, but I do love a good photo blogging challenge! This one (oh, ha ha!) is from ‘A lil hoohaa’. The challenge is to provide five photos, taken during the designated month, all illustrating the given theme. This month’s theme, as you see, is ‘One’.
So, I’ve just trawled through my March photo files to see what I could find, and I came up with these.
At the top, one classic red phone box, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It’s actually in Wennington, one of the most picturesque and well-preserved villages around these parts. It is full of thatched cottages, old-fashioned signposts and even has a duck pond (which, coincidentally, had one solitary duck on it when we passed through).
Around the same time, early in March, I took this picture of one of my dogs, Jeffie.
His coat must surely be one of the most unusual colours, but you see, he is black. And the trouble with a black dog is that the night is also black, and soon after dusk, he disappears from view – even when he is on his lead. That’s the reason he is now Hi Vis Jeffie.
While we are on the subject of dogs, here is a very rare picture of them both sharing ONE bed!
Now, if Jeffie had been in that bed first, there is no way that Sid would have got a look-in. He’d have been warned off in no uncertain terms. But because Sid was there first, and Jeffie desperately wanted that bed, he curled right up close to Sid so he could fit in too.
Next, I found a sweet picture of one of the twins in her doorway ‘Tigger’ bouncer. This one is Sophie, and her sister was in the doorway opposite. They had a whale of a time!
And lastly, yesterday I took my camera into the garden to take a few pictures of the spring flowers, and I found this little fellow, looking all new and velvety, on a climbing rose.
One solitary velvet mite. A bit bigger that the more common red spider mite, these are not saprophytes and do not feed on plants, but are parasitic on other (larger) insects.
