The Frog Prince
For some time now I have been transferring all my photos onto my external hard drive and copying them all onto disc, then eventually getting some of them printed up in photo books. I thought that I was doing ok but checking through my old memory cards I found the whole month of May 2011 had been overlooked.
Peter Pan and Captain Hook
Dobby from the Harry Potter books
I am so pleased I realized, as some of the missing photos are those shown here. Every two years the village of Wingham in Kent stage a ‘Scarecrow Trail’ which my friend Pauline and I went to in 2011. The scarecrows are just amazing, perfect photo subjects, and we had the chance to look round some of the beautiful gardens in the village which are usually hidden from public view.
The Royal Wedding – 2011
We had a really lovely afternoon, including tea and cakes on someone’s front lawn, and we promised ourselves that we would go again the next time this event was staged. To my disappointment we missed it this year, I never heard a thing about it (and I work in a Library!) and only found out that it had been on when one of the customers in the Library told me how lovely this years event had been!
Toad of Toad Hall
Winnie the Pooh and friends on the river.
Dr Who’s Tardis and a Dalek
I will make sure I look out for this in 2015, it really is a lovely idea, and makes a very interesting day out.
Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones
Cruella de Vil and some of the Dalmation puppies.
I think you will agree the Scarecrows are just amazing, I hope you enjoy the photos
Little Red Riding Hood
Dragons can hide anywhere
For everyone suffering from our English heat wave, keep cool if you can, at least we are getting a summer this year
