16 of 365 Lady Grey by Charlotte Burt on Flickr.

I went to Totnes for a Qigong class and afterwards when walking up the main street I met this gentleman taking his owl for
a walk.  Her name is Lady Grey and I think he said that she was a Lapland grey owl.

The rest of the second week

9 of 365 Ohh I do like going for a walk in the mud

have been trying to walk more than 10,000 steps so I did a round trip up the river to Plym Bridge Woods from the park and ride car park. It was a bit muddy, I am not sure if it was the fact that it was a grey day, or that I had the point and shoot rather than my big girl camera with me, but most of the shots where fairly uninteresting, hence the shot of my feet being my choice for today.

10 of 365 Coffee (and playing around with lightroom presets)

Another working day, this week much more chilled but this shot of a latte I had with my lunch was (with a bit of playing with lightroom) the most interesting by far.

For some reason my daughter thinks that it’s picnic weather.

12 of 365 Lego Photo Shoot

A combination of solid rain and having a sick child at home all day meant that it was time to play with some of the lego my daughter got for Christmas. (this shot got explored on Flickr which I am quite proud of)

I went for a walk with the intention of taking photos of boats, but this shot was much more interesting.

I think that this is my favorite shot for the week.

1/365 I nearly forgot all about starting the 365 and the poor fairy had already fallen off the tree by then, well almost.

3/365  My reading for January,  I have finished the Help , And the Urban Sketcher already.

The Help was definitely light reading, but pretty well written and it kept me captivated from beginning to end

The Urban Sketcher was a little bit of a disappointment, as visually its not as exciting as it could be, but I learnt a few little hints and tips to improve my location drawing.

6 of 365 Ornamental Crab Apples
My daughter decided to pick all these from the trees, and now I have to figure out what to do with them. The plan is crab apple jelly, recipe kindly given by a fellow 365er  Alison Clayton. I will be posting about how that went I am sure

365 take two

In 2010 I took a photo a day almost every day.  It was both extremely challenging and extremely rewarding, my photography improved immensely and even though I did struggle at times (August was the worst).  The whole thing (I will have to check for dead links in a bit) can be found here, and on my Flickr page.  Anyway I am doing it all again.

 

 

Remember not to eat the leaves!

I love rhubarb, and its very easy to grow. Its just a case of planting it in a sunny spot and providing the soil around it with enough nutrients.  Personally I just add grass cuttings around the base whenever the lawn is cut and this quickly rots down  to provide all the nitrogen that the plant needs to make lovely thick stalks.

 Of course it can take a year or so to become established before you can start picking it but after that you can pick as much as you like till midsummer, then I generally leave it alone unless I have a craving for a crumble.

Don't eat the leaves
