I actually managed to find everything for the March Scavenger Hunt as set by Kathy of Postcards from the PP
I'm not posting the photos on Flickr though. They will just remain here.
First of all, a lion - and not just any lion; the lion on the Royal Coat of Arms! In this instance, it is keeping a watchful eye over the entrance to the Crown Court in Derby.
Number two is a rainbow, seen in the spray of the fountain in the lake in Vicki Park in the London Borough of Hackney.
Number three shows something green and is in Wales. Dolgoch is one of the steam engines hauling the trains on the Tal y Llyn railway, which runs between Tywyn and Nant Gwernol; a Great Little Train of Wales! In fact, the Tal y Llyn was the first railway to be saved by a Preservation Society and opened to the public. Run almost entirely by volunteers, it is a good day out! Why not take a ride, disembark at Dolgoch station (after which the engine was named) and walk up to admire the falls?
Number four takes us to Yorkshire and the RHS gardens at Harlow Carr, where we find our empty chair. If I remember rightly, it is from the Edwardian garden. (Sacristan may correct me if I am wrong.)
For number five I have a brace of bracelets, which fulfills two criteria. The larger silver bracelet belonged to my mum. I saw her wear it on many a special occasion and will always picture it on her wrist. It definitely has sentimental value!
The smaller bracelet was bought for me when I was a baby. It is as old as I am.
Out into my back garden for photo number six (item number seven), which is the peeling paint. This old bench is waiting for me to have the time and inclination to dismantle it! If ever I sit on it, I do so very gingerly. The wood is not so strong as it once was :)
Continuing through the list, we have a collection of medals...
...and a ring; part of the latching mechanism on the gate above Errwood Reservoir, on the way up to Shining Tor. Here, you are only just within the boundary of Derbyshire. Beware! Stray too far and you could have an encounter with the Cheshire Cat!
The fancy gate (which also happens to feature two lions - just as a second dose) is in the grounds of Forbidden Corner, in Coverdale; Yorkshire. I would say more, but it's Forbidden!
The shadow is of Mark and I on top of Black Rocks last week. It's probably the nearest you will ever get to seeing a photo of me on here!!! (By the way - He's not quite THAT much taller than me. I was standing slightly further back! - And to prove it, you can see the end of his shoe near the bottom of the photo.)
And finally... two lambs! All together... Ahhhhhh!
This has been fun, even if not altogether easy! I was still scratting around for those elusive final photos last weekend.
