I’ve been having a couple of days off while my daughter was home from London.
There were a flock of decorated glass fibre sheep (Skipton means “Sheep Town”):
I think this was possibly my favourite:
Or possibly this one:
Or Baa Bones:
Art in the Pen was good too. I’m thinking of exhibiting there next year. Nearly bought a new hat, but resisted.
We had a walk round the village before Nim left for London. I must say things are getting to look a little backendish, as we say round here:
Blackberries already (yum!)
Hazel nuts. And rather a surprise for the canal bank:
These appear to be wild plums. I’d seen a lot of blossom there in Spring.
It was a good sunny morning and some people were enjoying the scenery from their canal barge hotel (no, really an hotel!):
So warm the tups were sheltering from the sunshine (just when I was getting used to Summer being cold again!)
