Part one is still not quite finished with April, while part Two was planned to take a brief detour somewhere different, but
photobucket is playing silly buggers, so it's back to the early garden

Part Two
Seem to have come to the end of the garden pics for now. One thing I did a lot in the year or so after Chip died was hitch up the Dawg and wander aimlessly about in Devon, pointing my Lumix at anything that caught my eye. So that..

Part one takes in an adventure at the former Tree Root Falls, now Tree Root Canyon following some assisted erosion
by the Lad Himself, the Gray Ranger, and his faithful companion, Bozo.

Another shortie like yesterday. What can I tell you? I'm losing my grip.
But anyway, it's getting on for the middle of May, and as usual I'm bumbling around Devon with a Lumix, blatting away, with a fixed grin on
my eek, force 7 on the Rictus Scale...

Long Barn at Thornhedges Cross

Image
Lying Cows and Flying Crow
of course the bird in the bottom left isn't actually a corvid (a pigeon, maybe?) but in caption world, wordplay often trumps truth

Image
Déja Vu
Most of the places I've lived, there's been a particular view or sight that I photographed many times over the years: here, there's been loads of them,
but few more often photographed than the ladder of shadows along this lane. I must have put up dozens already, but they are all subtly different
in detail. And I still haven't got a single definitive one yet

Image
Up and Over
This one, though, taken from the end of the visible road in the pic above, is pretty much definitive of this view in summer. Everything about it,
formally, pleases me, from the fall of the shadows to the curves and their placement - very reminiscent of the French curves my dad used in his
technical drawing - and taking in the colours, especially the greens. It all balances

Image
Temporary Island
Arrived now at Creedy Beach. The resemblance of this plant adrift in the river to a cartoon desert island with a single palm tree spoke to me
