Assumption BSV Beckley

 

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Beckley which is north east of Oxford is a church I decided to visit more or less on a whim. The nice thing about the visit is that it was open so if you follow the link you will see how it looks inside.

Hillside Sky

 

Following on with what I showed on Tuesday, these are a few of the views I saw form the hillside

Looking across from the path we were walking along

Which was this looking back along it


 The rolling hillside

A panoramic shot which Google photos put together makes the whole view look amazing

Back in Wales

 

Went back to Wales last week to stay overnight in our caravan, we managed two walks  up the hill in that space of time. First one a little while after we got there and the second the next morning. it would have been three but with a storm coming in the next day we decided the best thing was to go home early and miss the heavy rain.

The morning looked very promising from our caravan door
The campsite had also gained a new reception
We started off and the firsts stage was to get to a farm gate leading to the hillside beside it is this ditch which has gained a new fence to stop sheep wandering in the ditch
The opposite way you can look up a gully in the hillside, it's steeper than it looks here
This is the first steep section going to the quarry, it makes your legs ache
It gets worse, you can see my wife in the distance with the dog pulling ahead
Looking back down you can breath a sigh of relief  for a short while there is another long section yet
Which is finishes around where I'm stood
Another 20 minuets walking later you can look down to where we started on the campsite 
Friday I will show a few of the views in Skywatch
Take care

Cold Sunset

 

A couple of weeks ago I  popped out to the trash bin on a cold night and noticed the sun was going down and the moon was rising. Photos were all taken with mu Iphone

 Upstairs out of the bedroom window looking across the village with the moonrise

 Wider view over the gardens

 Out the front of the house over the allotments

 Zooming out to show the wider area

 The next night I took this out of the bedroom window of the moon with the light showing in the houses

Happy Skywatch

In the Greenhouse

 

I think this week it is time we went back to have a look in the greenhouse and see what is growing. I must admit I planed the seeds a little early but that aside they grew and  most of them are doing well

These are various tomato plants

Bit of a mixture on this one

And the last one has more tomato plants

 
Most of these are a verity called Alicante

 
Now I was not sure about growing these but decided to in the end, they are  Aubergines


Cucumbers, first ones withered away but these look to be doing OK


Romano Plumb

More Alicante and beside them are pots which contain Runner beans. My wife saved some seeds from Sugar Drop tomato and another she called Prunellas Itsy witsy  tomato seeds which are also growing well. I also have beef tomato growing. Most of them will be given away as I will only be growing a few of the strongest ones I have shown, I do not have room for them all


I will leave you to ponder this, What do you think I am going to make with this wood, I show the answer in another blog.

Inside St Jon the Baptist Stanton St John

 

This week the church explorer returns to St John the Baptist Stanton St John because he forgot to post photos of the inside, could be to do with the fact I have taken on looking after Inspired Sunday as well. Please take the time to look around this wonderful old church.

Swan Lake Sky

 

You you spotted my WW Blog on Wednesday you will have noticed the swan

Zooming back a little gave a bigger view behind

Stand back and the swan had stuck it's head in the water but there was a nice blue sky with a few clouds behind

 

As we were staying the night I let the dog out and looked up to see the moon over the hills in the distance. Happy Skywatch
