Weasel Walk

A weasel being taken for a walk on a lead

They really do take weasels* ferrets for a walk up north! This was a surprise find when we visited the Tanfield Railway recently.

Later I met the owner at Causey Arch, a couple of miles from where this photo was taken. The ferret’s name is Peace.

* = Thanks to commenter rjbuxton for the correction. It seems my brain went on holiday for a while😉

The talking statue

Brunel: One of London's Talking Statues

Since the last time we met Brunel, he’s moved platforms* and become one of London’s Talking Statues.

Hugh Bonneville plays the part of Brunel.  I can feel another London project coming on…

* = The Paddington bench currently resides where Brunel used to be. They remind me of the Musical Statues game we used to play as children😉

Friday Bench: Cava Grande

Bench at Cava Grande del Cassibile nature reserve

Another guest bench and another new country – yippee! It’s from my regular guest benchers Steve and Lu this time, via their holiday in Sicily earlier this year.

They visited the Cava Grande del Cassibile nature reserve, near Syracuse. It sounds wonderful from this description… and looking at that bench, of course:)

Living on the Edge

Geraniums and vintage car on the outskirts of Chippenham

I’m exploring some of the wildflowers which are blooming right on the outskirts of Chippenham and Geranium pratense is an abundant native wildflower here in Wiltshire. I often see it at this time of year in the Donkey Field on my walks into town.

It also likes the approach to Chippenham and I had a serendipitous encounter recently with it and a vintage car which must have been out on a run from an event at Castle Combe.
