"Bell"
A hollow object with the shape of a deep inverted cup.
No actual bells in this part of the world so this pretty flower that lives next to my pond will have to do. Its a Geum rivale (Water Avens) which loves boggy areas and after the flowers are finished is covered with gorgeous round burrs.
I am off to visit Mima this afternoon on my push bike so I am hoping the weather stays as beautiful as it is now as I am hoping to have a play with her Macro lens while I am there to see what it can do and to see just how much I NEED one.
Matt (son No1) went on holiday with school last night and should be in France by now on his way to Paris for the week. I'm just hoping that he comes back in one piece - unlike last year when he went to Germany. They have got instructions to tape him into the bunk bed each night just to make sure he doesn't topple out again but I am sure that he will find another way of injuring himself.

Great dof on this shot, and I am fairly sure that this afternoon you are going to discover that it isn't just need on the macro, it is more like air, you can't actually live without it!!

Your son sound like a born clumsy person, like me! I fell walking outside my front door and broke my ankle!
I want a holiday like his! I am utterly bored on my current holiday. Hope over to my other blog to see just how bored one can be without any children for a week and a hubby at work!
I love your bell.
