One a week photo challenge- Stationary

Waiting for the train on the North York Moors Railway at Newbridge in Pickering.

It turned out to be a diesel train, which is a bit of a swizz, so here is the one which came from Grosmont to Pickering half an hour later.

That’s better, a proper train.

Next week’s prompt is Lost.

Happy Snapping!

Sunday Sevens!

A look at my week through seven pictures. Inspired by Sunday Sevens, Natalie at Threads and Bobbins

I braved the weather on Sunday, wind rain etc etc

to go for a walk. Well it’s flooded, humph! I turned back and went round by the station, just as a train was coming in

I really just had to take the next picture

All those wheels in a row.

Monday I packed my bag and went swimming

The plan is to go again tomorrow, Monday.

Now this week was pretty momentous, as we finally , yes finally sold my Dad’s house. I have such mixed emotions about it. I spent the week loading the car and taking things to the charity shops or the tip, or rescuing things my brother or stepbrother couldn’t bear to be parted from after all. Breaking my heart to throw away dog collars and give away Dad’s walking boots. But things must go forward, I know.

I had one last wander round his garden and in a little corner of a flower bed the first snowdrops were coming into bloom, the first that I have seen this year.

I dug this clump up, and will plant some near his grave and some in our garden. The last gift from his green fingers.

I walked through the woods at the back of his house and was rather taken with this fungi, or is it fungus?

Anyway this

It looks so tactile.

Meantime I am rather incredulous that I managed to take a cutting from a house plant last year and got it to flower for me.

Hope you had a good week, here’s to the next!
