Through planned, positioned trees,Fountains Abbey ~ Gill Renard
round the next bend,
we stumbled upon the ruins,
still and lifeless, shrouded in mist….
On, past the frugal remains of a kitchen
and a refectory carpeted in grass,
a chapel, roofless
and still haunted by silence.
Another misty Autumn evening walk and Roche Abbey becomes even more atmospheric

Very atmospheric indeed!
it was a magical silent setting
thank you Jude – Misty not blurry 😉
p.s. thought of you today as I planted some tulip bulbs in a pot and remembered your wonderful displays
I have three packets of tulips waiting to go onto containers, but another wet day today! At this rate I will have to plant them in the rain! And I am a fair weather gardener.
so am I more or less but have a ‘pottering shed’ which gives shelter for these winter jobs!
My pottering shed is damp and full of spiders, but it might be my only option 🕷️🕷️🕷️
so is mine – I believe a rat visits too
Undoubtedly here. And mice. I keep thinking about getting a new shed or a small greenhouse. I have a conservatory, but I don’t really want to traipse compost all over it.
all creatures great and small watch us pottering!
Dear Laura, I am constantly amazed at who you are and what you see. How come I to be a part of this family, But God. Awed, Sherwood

We are family! And I would give so much to have half your photographic technical skills
Someone else already wrote this in a comment but my first thought was “very atmospheric.” I like the idea of a refectory carpeted in grass.
was so pleased to have come across that poem that conjures just what it feels like here
What she said 🙂
thank you x
