Five of Seven

 Coombe Country Park


Photo taken just outside Coombe Abbey Hotel.

I could only get 5 of 7 cygnets into the frame.  

I don't think it will be long before these are big swans.

I am a returning blogger and I promise that it won't be long

before I share photographs from in and around Coventry,

not just at Coombe Country Park (as beautiful and entertaining as it is).

Bear with :).

Wheat Fields

 Ling Lane, Church Lawford

Greetings!

It's been months since I posted anything.  Coventry is changing

significantly.  Whilst we still have a number of Covid-19 restrictions 

I really feel the urge to get out there and safely take some photos.

This one was taken at a little spot we like to stop and enjoy the views

looking over Warwickshire, England.

It is a bit of a dull day but this wheat field looks a pretty sage green.

Have a good day!

The Oak Tree

 Coombe Country Park


A sweet relative of mine emailed recently asking for 
an update on how this beautiful oak tree was doing.
So this morning I went and had a look for myself. 
Thankfully, it is looking as good as ever, I would have to say.


Photos taken this morning after a nice long walk around the park.

Please take care and stay safe!

Time Flies

Moon Landing - 50 Years Ago Today

Commemorative Apollo 11 Medal
made by Lombardo Mint, Canada



Fifty years ago today, I was home sick with the flu. 
So glad.  I was able to watch the whole moon landing on TV. 

How about you?



My dad was an avid coin collector.  This medal is from his collection and
was passed on to my husband, a Coventry kid.  He found a good place for it :).
