I thought I would firstly....
Welcome my new followers, I am always amazed (and gratified) that people actually read and comment on my wafflings - so thank you - you make me go ... squeeeeeeee!
And secondly a quick round up of our Scavenger hunt and a reminder of what I am up to during June.
Jak from Jak's Tales had a wealth of stories from Africa including a lovely one of her meeting Lady Olave Baden-Powell. Susan from Granny Smith's Quilting quite astounded us at the depth of an open cast mine she'd photographed - I have had to go back and have another look - there is the teeniest tiniest HUGE mining truck at the bottom of that hole!
Julie of Julie's Scrapbook had a excellent selection of images and one that caught my attention was her 'Group' picture. It was of ducks and she said ...... Group of ducks is called a "skein", "string" "team" or "flock" ... I never knew the collective noun for ducks could be skeins or strings or teams! You learn something new every day!
Fiona from Made in a Muddle joined us for the first time this month and provided some lovely stories and pictures - my favourite was the blurred hands as they busily crocheted away :) Lovely Lady once again filled her post with pictures of her busy life, I always stand in awe at what she achieves!
Fil from With a Song to Sing (and a Story to Tell) joined us again this month, her choice of piano was lovely, three pianos and three stories for the price of one word :). Welcome to Barb who had struggled to link up however she managed, well done Barb! She used her recent holiday in the Outer Hebrides (a favourite place of mine) to supply most of her images.
Well done everyone, another good month of stories and pictures and if you didn't visit any of the participating 'photo hunters' please do - we all love comments and meeting new folk!
Now, next month - June, I am participating in a challenge of posting a 'wild themed' story a day. Organised by the Wildlife Trusts UK, I am taking part as a '30 Days Wild Blogger' as Hawthorn.
I hope you'll visit and comment and be inspired to 'go wild'.
Our own photo challenge for June is also wild life themed but fortunately for you it is back to just the 10 words! The list, as usual, is up on the right hand side of this page.
