black and white (and some colour)

I've had such a busy couple of weeks that writing a blog post has been rather low down on the priorty list.  And it doesn't look like it's going to get any easier!  Not that I'm's great to be busy, although   CLM has a couple of features in magazines in the next few weeks and I'm getting a bit worried that my waiting list is going to grow even longer.
I also managed to damage to tip of my index finger (thankfully its the left hand and not the right).  They say that a blunt knife is more dangerous than a sharp one!  In my case it was a stanley knife which left the cardboard box and in a upward vertical motion hit my poor old finger and cut right into the nail and finger...ouch! 

I'm feeling in an Ingmar Bergman kind of mood tonight and have removed the colour from these photos which were taken on Sunday at Hennock Reservoir.  It was cold and grey and the smell from the woodland was amazing.

Right...that's the arty farty photos out of the way.  Now for some colour...

Isn't it beautiful! 
Every year this wonderful clemetis always surprises me with its many perfectly formed flowers and stunning display. 
 My mood is instantly lifted when I see it's bye bye Ingmar!!

Not sure I like those grey photos despite their beauty. Am SO in need of sunshine these days. Glad that you are kept busy with orders - I love to hear of small bespoke businesses doing well. Your mannequins whether vintage or modern are just delightful and wish I could afford one of those lovely old ones. Anyway keep up the good work! (And BTW if you feel like a bit of fun I have a Giveaway on my blog at the moment.)

sorry to hear about your finger- Health 'n' Safety would have a field day with our packaging anctics. . .they'd dress you in chain-saw garb for sure!

My Garfield blog might just have the answer to your lack-of-time-for-a-story dilemma:))

Love, love, love those grey photos! And sorry to hear about your finger, it sounds really icky!

It was fascinating to read your comment about Elvis and how his death affected you. I love hearing what people went through and how it affected them. x

Hi Lucy
I love pictures in black and white, I think it makes them look so atmospheric and haunting, the last picture of that gnarled old tree reminds me of a Tim Burton film - they are lovely photos.
