I am really enjoying this whole Halloween thing. Three posts inspired by it this week!
I thought I would share these pictures that Chips and I took recently in some bushes at Levens Hall, Cumbria.
Yes, I'm afraid that's what some middle aged couples do in bushes, they photograph them!
Don't the branches make the most fabulous shapes and patterns?
I thought this one looked like a javelin thrower with a very bad hair do. You don't get that? No one in my office saw it either.
To me they look like the hair and fingers of witches from the storybooks of my childhood.
I thought they were wonderfully spooky and were it not for fear of arrest, I could have stayed in the bushes for hours. Levens Hall has one of the finest topiary gardens in the world along with the best preserved collection of leather wallpaper...but that can wait for another day. We have a lovely, large stencil of tree silhouettes and this link will take you there.
If you like your halloween images a little more perky then I hope you enjoy this chap,
I found him at the Globe and Mail newspaper via Reuters. What a brilliant face.
