Shades of Green

Yesterday's view from Coombe Abbey Hotel looking towards
Coombe Country Park.

I'll have to get out my flower and tree books to
identify these additions of yellow and purple color here.

Happy Monday.
The pressure is on for me to do a few jobs 
around the house so I'll be taking a little break.

Stay well!  Back soon :)

Weather Report

It's not raining :).
This photo was taken at Ryton Pools Country Park,
about 10 minutes from Coventry.
Makes me feel like I am in Colorado, USA.

Better show you one of the pools....

....and the Visitors Centre.  There is a cafe too.

Have a super weekend.  I'll be painting (our living room walls :)).

Participating in Skywatch Friday.

Thatched Roof Thursday #68 - Warwick

A most unusual thatched roof building.

Next door to the thatched cafe in St Nicholas Park, Warwick,
a place to wash your hands, etc.

Public Toilets, St Nicholas Park, Warwick.
The 'Ladies' is to the right :).

Next door to that is a miniature railway!

I hope to find time to post photos tomorrow.
We have had some good weather...that means getting
paint brushes out and doing some painting/decorating around the house.

Hope you are having a good week!

Thatched Roof Thursday #67 - Fancy An Ice Cream?

St Nicholas Park Cafe, Warwick

I can't tell you how excited I got when I discovered
this thatched roof cafe last week.

 We went there twice on our day at the park.
Once for coffee and again for an ice cream.

Inside?  You got it!  View of another thatched building :).

Hope you are all well.  Off to visit your blogs 
after dinner.  Cheers!

Coventry University - Square One

Another City Daily Photo 'Squares' Theme Day shot not used last week.
I like the sign so here is a little about Coventry Univeristy.

I am standing just outside one of Coventry University's venues 
known as Square One
located not far from Coventry Cathedral.

Walk through those doors and students have a choice
of bars, cinema and conference space 
in a central location in Coventry City Centre.
Click on the Coventry University 'label' below for more.

Inside Looking Out

Coventry Cathedral Spire
taken from inside Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.

I took this photo last week thinking I might use it for
City Daily Photo's Theme Day - Squares.

Just for fun I'm adding a photo of that same window
looking from the outside in :).

Hope you are all set for a great week!

Thatched Roof Thursday #66 - Warwick...

...and City Daily Photo Theme Day - Squares.

Taken yesterday at a cafe in St Nicholas Park, Warwick.

Boy, did I get lucky yesterday when we visited Warwick.
