Beach treasure

This rope bracelet was already perfectly formed around one of the bits of driftwood we picked up the other day. It would take a while to arrange something as pleasing.

A few buckets and a cormorant

Here's some buckets ready to go to Cornwall. Is that a group? - a collection? - a gaggle? - there must be a good collective name for buckets. . . 

In the photo of the single bucket bag, you will see a small black speck to the left - this is actually a cormorant drying his wings in the morning sun. He (it must be a 'he' - I'm sure the girlie is off doing something productive) has been on that post on quite a few morning photo sessions and doesn't seem to mind the mad woman and her bags.

View from the factory

Some very tall poppies have seeded themselves in the vegetable patch at Dr Bean HQ. Sadly, they seem to be growing with a lot more vigour than the aforementioned veg. 
Also love the paperiness and colour of the Cistus, which like the poppy, produces a new batch of flowers every day, which is very commendable. Well done - tick and a gold star.
