Day #2919Title: Last Resting Place
Location: Rettenden, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I popped over to Rettenden this afternoon for a quick walk. I explored the church yard and found these lazy-looking grave stones resting against the wall to the farm next door, which had an odd blanked-out window.

Day #2869Title: Green On Wye Downs
Location: Wye, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spent an enjoyable day roaming in Kent looking for some vintage geocaches (most of them have been in the wild for more than 10 years) on my way to Deal to stay with my friend Julian for a few days. This is what I can only assume is an old sheep trough on the North Downs near Wye. It looks rather overgrown and green now, but there was a large flock of woolly quadrupeds further along the hill. It was extremely windy up there and they looked at me with uncomprehending ovine eyes as I made my search for the tupperware prize.

Day #2866Title: Gore-Tex Boot
Location: Runwell, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went for a very damp walk in Runwell this morning… It was fine when I started off but started raining pretty soon. Good job I have my new Gore-Tex boots to wear – my toes remained toasty and dry! Anyway, it makes a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #34 – Laces.

Day #2804Title: All The Shades Of Green
Location: Little Bromley, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I was intrigued by all the lovely shades of green I spotted in this shot, the vibrancy of the moss was particularly satisfying.

Day #2733Title: Monthly Garden Project – June
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  I was hard at work in the garden for much of today, despite the sunny weather. At least there was a cool breeze. Since last month’s progress shot, I’ve disposed of the huge pile of rubble and cobbles which came up from the wonky path; taken up some paving slabs and cleared the left side of the gate; pruned the black elder bush; filled in the hole left by the sleepers being moved in April and prepared some more unwanted pots and my old garden furniture to put on Freecycle. I have also had a landscape gardener visit to discuss laying the new patio. I’m now waiting for his quote. It’s the one thing that I think should be done by a pro, as if the levels are wrong, it would cause all sorts of drainage issues near the house. I would rather pay for it to be done right than bodge it myself! So we’re still in the “rip apart” phase. Hopefully soon we can start the “put together” phase.

Day #2699Title: Needs Weeding
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:  I’ve been clearing an overgrown corner of the garde today. This is a bit I haven’t got around to dealing with yet – it certainly needs weeding.

Day #2623Title: The Wonky Gate
Location: Paper Mill Lock, Little Baddow
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: The long winter shadows looked particularly good this afternoon at Paper Mill Lock. This wonky gate closes across the towpath just beyond the tearoom garden.
