Fishink in Tarporley again.

April 18, 2012

Another lovely day on sunday and I headed over to my friends in Tarporley, Cheshire. The skies were beautiful with ‘ Little fluffy clouds’ just like the song by The Orb lol.

In their back garden, I came across a collection of ‘chooks’ forming amongst the vegetables. Some that even store the light in the daytime and then glow from the insides in the evening, how lovely.

A fab array of shapes in the foliage. Tulips and Japonicas whose colour was really quite something and great swaggers of cherry blossom that hung from the trees like captured white candy floss.

We set off on a local walk. I loved this collection of pinks, purples and tiny blue Forget-Me-Nots.

The paths and fields were lovely in the sharp sunlight and dramatic skies.

There was plenty of wildlife and farm animals around to keep us company too. The pigs fur was so wiry and the little ones had curly tan turfs of hair on their sides.  Mrs Pig couldn’t face being upright, preferring to stretch out and bask in the afternoon rays, and with all the little ones running around, I kind of understood why.

After the walk, the light was quiet dramatic and illuminated sections of the trees in the nearby field. It looked like someone had spray painted orange and yellow stripes across their branches.

This made me think of a Turner or Constable painting.  Another a beautiful day and thanks again to my wonderful hosts for the scrumptious Fish pie that accompanied this view.

    The pictures are so rich and colourful, and put together in a lovely ‘Fishink’ collage make them look even better.
