In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve more photos of our walk on Sunday along the beach last week. It was dry and the tide was out a long way, so we were right down on the sands which we don’t often do.

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of our walk on Sunday along the beach (again!). We were lucky, as rain had been forecast but for once it held off and we were able to wander along the sands at low tide. Which means I’ve taken some pics of the pier looking up at it, instead of standing on it. There have been some storms recently, hence the quantities of welk egg cases thrown up onto the shore – though I’m not sure where all the dead crabs came from. However, as you can see, on Sunday the sea was really calm.

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of emerging flowers in the garden, along with sprays of narcissi that Himself bought me in my spring flower Valentine bouquet. And yes… I know photographically they are not the best I’ve taken. But they are a promise of flowers to come, with sunshine and warmth. And right now on a bleak, wet mid-February day, I need that promise… That said, I’m still not quite sure why my perennial wallflower shrub insists on trying to flower right now. Or why my rosemary is also covered in buds which are just beginning to bloom.

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of a walk along the beach I did with Frank a couple of weeks ago. It was a bright afternoon and surprisingly warm for the time of year. I loved the rich quality of the sunshine, as the sun was heading towards the horizon, even though it was only about 4 pm. The joys of a short winter day… We didn’t stay down there for the sunset – but those pics of the sky were taken from my front garden just over an hour later…

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of our walk on the beach on Sunday morning with Himself. As you can see, the sea was quite rough as we’d had high winds the previous night. It was a brisk day, with a temperature of around 39 degrees F – and yes… there were three surfers bobbing around out there in the water, which you can see in one of the pics.

Never, ever snatch livestock from humans unless you’ve burnt down their farm and incinerated any onlookers. They are the only species in the world more possessive than dragons

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of our walk on the beach on Saturday morning when the younger grandchildren were staying. We had to go reasonably early as Himself needed to go to bed by 11 am so he got sufficient sleep for his late shift. And it was perishing! However, everyone enjoyed getting out for a breath of fresh – if freezing – air…

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve taken a series of photos from the garden last week, during a cold snap, when the frost formed slightly differently so that the ice crystals were larger than usual. So I grabbed my camera and went outside…

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve taken a series of photos from last Thursday, when we went for a walk along Littlehampton beach. The grandchildren were with us and it was a beautiful sunny afternoon without a breath of wind. It was amazingly mild for the time of year, so I could dawdle on the shingle, soaking up the sun and watching the boys tussle down by the sea. They both returned with wet shoes, but that was okay. I got them dry before they went home the following day. A drop of golden happiness in the middle of the gloomiest of gloomy winters…
