Two More - Photo Scavenger Hunt 2

Welcome, welcome - so nice of you to drop in. I am so glad you called as I have a few more photos to show you. I know you will remember that I am a "Photo Scavenge Hunter" this year, my first time joining in with other photo scavengers around the world - - but just in case you don't, Rinda will give you full details here, at Gallo Organico.
No 9 - Something clearly out of place.
 Had to include this for this item - never seen an Antipodaean flag hanging from a tree on my island before! Positioned there - quite prominently during TT week, as the visitors - bikers I understand -
who had brought their bikes with them for TT were from Down Under as we would say! Chatting to them as they enjoyed the best weather we have had for TT week for some years, they told me they had travelled on their bikes all the way to get here. I did take this photo just before the official start of the hunt this year - but after Rinda had put up the post - I meant to post this with my last post - - but managed to lose it on my PC!! Found it just now - so thought I had better get it added to my list before I lost it again! (Do you lose stuff on your "puter???- or is it just me!) I just didn't think I would be able to capture something more appropriate!
No 10 - A Bench Outside
My second photo today was taken in the Garden of Milntown -- the nearest we have to the wonderful grounds to be found in a traditional English Stately Home. The house is a delightful cafe - - but the gardens are totally wonderful. This bench is tucked away at the back of the walled vegetable garden and everything about this garden makes me feel I have stepped back in time - - even the gardeners have string tied round their trousers just below the knees - - like a Victorian or Edwardian gardener in an illustration from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgeson Burnett. It is a rather pleasant spot to rest - as many of the plants around it are aromatic.

Thanks for dropping in,
'til later

  1. I have ticked of quite a few this week myself. Being downtown for jury duty had its benefits ;)

  2. Love the bench...I keep forgetting about the out-of -place item...I actually took a pic today that might just fit the bill!
