Photo Medley - September

It's time again for a round up of photos which haven't yet made it on to the blog.

The sundial on the church in Eyam. It's dated 1775 and not only shows the time in half hours but also indicates the time in places worldwide.


This stone is found in the churchyard in Eyam. I wonder if Mick's headstone will say something similar.


Another view of the main street in Bakewell.


A recent addition to the bridge over the River Wye.


The viaduct and river at Monsal Head looking down in to Monsal Dale.


Birthday flowers from Eleanor. So pretty.


Donkeys sharing their field with the sheep at Temple Newsam last weekend.


Autumnal shades. The leaves are changing colour now.


A sneaky peek at Yarndale, I was there on Saturday. Blog post to follow.


That's it for another month.

Don't forget about the swap I'm running. The Twelve Days Of Christmas Swap Sign Up is still open, but only for another two days. If you fancy joining in, just leave a comment on that post and I'll add you to the list.  We've got quite a few people who are happy to post worldwide so location isn't a problem. I'm sure we're all going to have a lot of fun with this swap so don't be shy, add your name to the list.

  1. The flowers from Eleanor are fabulous, Jo. Did I miss saying happy birthday to you? If I did, happy birthday! If I didn't, sorry for the double birthday wishes! I'm blaming my age! LOL

    1. Ha ha, you did wish me a happy birthday but I enjoy getting all the good wishes so thank you again. I do love yellow roses and freesias are one of my favourites too, Eleanor knows me so well.

    1. I had a great time at Yarndale, I'm looking forward to writing the post about it. It's a shame you couldn't be there, perhaps next year. I've still got a couple of posts to write about my holiday, it seems so long ago now but I must get these last things on to the blog as they were great days out.

  4. I love the locks on that bridge--is the bridge lined with locks from people who have been married there?

    1. They're Lovers Locks, there's hundreds of them lining each side of the bridge. It's a tradition started by tourists visiting the Pont des Arts in Paris which has found its way over here. Sweethearts carve their initials on to a padlock before locking it to the bridge and then they throw the key in to the river to symbolise their unbreakable love.

  6. I had every intention of getting to Yarndale but my good intentions went to help pave that road. It was on the calendar and I only noticed it after writing the rugby score on my idiot board in the kitchen I(I like to read it and smile while the kettle boils)

    1. What a shame you didn't make it, perhaps you'll manage it next year. I had a great time, I'll be writing a post about it soon.

    1. I loved my birthday flowers, Eleanor knows just what I like. Yarndale is definitely the place to be if you're a colour junkie, it's such a brigh festival.

  9. What a lovely bunch of photos. Of course the one of the donkeys at Temple Newsam makes me quite homesick. I do love sundials and had never seen any that aren't on a pedestal until I visited the UK and found them fascinating. Lucky you going to Yarndale and can't wait to see your post about it. Was Fi from Marmalade Rose there? Take care.

    1. I always think of you when I see the donkeys at Temple Newsam, I remember taking photos of them on one of the days we met. Fi was at Yarndale. If money was no object, one of her hare pictures would have come home with me.

    1. It was still touch and go right up to Friday night whether I'd make it or not, Mick had a problem at work and didn't know if he'd have to go in on Saturday. I didn't bump in to Angel Jem, I'm not surprised though, it was heaving. Actually, I think she's the only person I didn't bump in to, I came home black and blue from all the pushing and shoving. The flowers are a gorgeous colour, of course, roses don't tend to last all that long but I enjoyed having them.

  11. Yarndale looks as if it was fantastic, I'm sorry I missed it. Bakewell looks unusually quiet, was it a weekday you went on? xx

    1. Yarndale was good, you'll have to see if you can make it next year. We went to Bakewell on a Wednesday, it was fairly quiet. I know some schools were back the week we went too so that might have had an impact on the number of people out and about too.

    1. Next year's dates are in my diary already. I've made two out of three so I'm hoping that I can make the next one again.

  13. Nice photos, Jo. I really enjoyed the variety of different sights and places. The sundial is really interesting. My son is very interested in charting the time of day via shadows, so I will have to show him your photo.

    1. I don't think I've ever seen such a detailed sundial before, it was very interesting. Great that it's so accurate too.
