Five on Friday - Just Five Moments


This week has been a whirlwind with some happy and sad moments along the way, so thank goodness I now have regular walks along the Fen with Tia, passing the time of day with other regular walkers and able to just have that moment where I can openly sigh and move on to the next thing.  So my five for this Friday that I am sharing with Amy at Love Made My Home's Five on Friday, starts with my favourite capture of the week.  The last field of wheat that I can see around here with the gorgeous red of the fluttering poppy.  Its petals will soon flutter away like a butterfly's wings leaving behind the pretty seed head to scatter around the harvested field.. 

My second moment was to smile at the discarded buckets from the farm workers.  Just waiting for the next morning when they will be back to pick the budding gladioli.  This particular field's blooms are a lot later than its neighbours - and no portaloo/potty here! (If you are wondering what on earth I am talking about, you can see what I mean here)


The third moment was to look up and see these little rainbows outlining the clouds as the sun prepared to set again.  Beautiful jewels in the sky to stand for a moment and stare.


The horses were having their own family moment shading under one of the trees across the river bank.  They weren't there for long but I was so glad that I managed to capture them before they went back to their stables.


My fifth moment had me chuckling to myself.  The large mound of branches, foliage and other discarded material probably being collected for a good bonfire, maybe for Guy Fawkes Night.  Don't hang about little sheep, there may be a BBQ!!


So that's my five this week.  The weekend will be filled with a trip to James Herriot Country which I hope to share with you next week.  I can't wait to see all the autumnal colours in Yorkshire!

Until then, have a wonderful weekend and week and...

HAPPY OCTOBER!

  2. HI Chel! Thanks for sharing those moments with us. Your photos and your words are beautiful. The rainbow coloured clouds announcing the sun set is such a precious moment. Bravo on capturing that! And those horses resting before going back to their stables.
    When I read what you wrote about the little lamb and the pile of wood, I couldn't help but laugh. Thank you so much since I needed to laugh this morning.
    Take good care of yourself and have a lovely weekend in Yorkshire!

  21. Lovely photos. The little rainbows in the sky are called "sundogs", they occur on either side of the sun when it's low in the sky at about 22 degrees from the sun and on the same level.

  30. Chel, Oh my goodness ... these are wonderful moments you've captured. I love, love that first one with the red poppy, and I'm always drawn to sheep photos. Every picture is exquisite. You have a good eye!

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend...

  31. I love your walk pictures - so rural and natural. Unfortunately, my walks are all urban - no sheep or fields of wheat here, but I am lucky to have some green spaces in our neighbourhood. If I squint my eyes enough, I can imagine I am in the fields of gold far off in the countryside!

  32. You're such a blessed soul, my darling Chel, I'd love to have you nearer and hug you just now, in this moment !
    You portrait all the most beautiful things we can enjoy in Nature, thank you !

    Have a most beautiful end of the week
    with heartfelt gratitude and much love

  44. Lovely photos. I am intrigued by that rainbow. I saw something like that a while ago for the first time, but sounds from what you say as if you see them quite often. Beautiful., anyhow!
