Beautifully dense

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National park

Dense is the prompt for this week's photo challenge.  Dense can mean many things and I am immediately drawn to think of texture, solid shapes and heaviness. So I have gone with the meaning of dense as 'closely compacted in substance' and am sharing some photos of some very special rocks from a visit to Australia's …

Wordless Wednesday – 29 March 2017

Wordless Wednesday! Start with crabapples and end with crabapple (and cinnamon) jelly! I will admit to cutting up some of these crabapples but not to producing this magnificent coloured jam despite my name on the jar!  That honour goes to my friend Cathy who is a domestic goddess.

Adventure riding – Musings on a Monday

Bikes, New Zealand, Rail Trail, Otago

Globetrotters- G’day Debbie 👋 

My daughter has featured me on her blog today – it really is all about me!!! Thanks Melanie, it’s a great post 🙂

the wandering darlings
