Annie, you're *so* good at writing small stones. I love the idea of the teasels scratching the breeze in this one.
What a wonderful word - teasel!Set me off on a silly rhyming verse with line endings weasel, diesel, measle (just the one!), Liesl (Sound of Music) - these'll do for now.
love that fragmented image to go with the words - wonderful Annie
oh, I love, love, love, 'teasels scrape the breeze' - xothe photo is wonderful
Hi Helen. Thanks so much. I'm pleased you're enjoying them. Yes, the shadows looked like they were scratching the shed as well.Hi Gordon. It's a lovely word, as are the others you mentioned. Will they be featuring in a poem soon? I'm really pleased you got a hint of the Sound of Music in there. Unfortunately, all I can think of now is schnitzel with noodles. Hi Rosie. Thanks. Pleased you liked the shot. I couldn't quite believe it when I saw those shadows.Hi Jeane. Thank you. They've been doing a lot of scraping this Winter. I'm surprised they are still standing. Actually, I'm surprised the shed beside them is still standing as well. Ax
One of my favorites so far! (ARE you thinking about doing a book?)
Hi Sharmon. Thanks. The chance of a shot like this one just made my day!! Regarding a book.....a have a few ideas on the go. I'll let you know if anything emerges.
Stone and image are both filled with a perfect aging.
Image and words are cracked with a sense of aging. Great stone!
Hi teri. Thanks for dropping by and for persisting with the comments tab - I know it can take a while sometimes. Thanks. As you can see, my shed is fading back to a paler and more wonky version of itself! The new teasel hubs are already greening, so it's good to know we'll have more this Summer.
I love this stone & picture. I like the way teasels become increasingly weathered over the winter but still they stand. In the last place I lived, our garden had teasals littered about, and they attracted hordes of goldfinches throughout the winter.
Hi Mark. Thanks for dropping by and for leaving a comment. These teasels self-seed on my allotment. We let most of them stay because we love them. As you say, they're so gorgeous and sculptural all year and bring the finches.
