Photo Scavenger Hunt - June
As I have not been able to go out and about as usual this week I decided to send Leigh and Judith off to do some scavenging for the Photo Scavenger Hunt and here is what they came up with :
Childhood Memory - this book was a present for Leigh on her 6th birthday a long long time ago but it has been her favourite book ever since. She especially liked the wise fox (not a schnauzer?) who tells the little prince 'You become responsible forever for what you have tamed' and 'It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is is invisible to the eye.'
Something with your town's name on it. We don't live in a town but here is a local sign with our village name. There are quite a lot of owls round here - we hear them hooting at night outside the window.
An elephant - or 4 wooden elephants which Judith brought back from a holiday in India.
Wheel Trim - on Leigh's Corsa.
Architectural detail - this is the emblem of Selby Abbey and is set in one of the walls. Selby is about 5 miles from our village - it is a very ancient town and the abbey was founded in 1069 by Benedict of Auxerre after he saw 3 swans on Selby Lake and thought they represented the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
Cheese - some of Judith's favourite cheeses.
Cutlery - the 'best silver cutlery' for special occasions!
A Night Shot - taken in the back garden last night. A scary stone owl by the solar lamp in the lavender.
Something beginning with Z - it had to be Zeta ( also called Little Z) - she crossed the Rainbow Bridge two years ago this week but is always remembered with love.
