Phone Pics

We made excellent time for our appointment yesterday and as we had over two hours to kill, decided to walk Maggie in the park by the hospital so that we could all stretch our legs, then she could settle down whilst we went into the cafe for something to eat.

There have been some changes and there is now a memorial garden for LINC, the Leukaemia and Intensive Chemotherapy Fund.
Obviously at this time of year the flowers have all gone over, but it was the carvings that caught our attention.
These magnificent benches were carved in huge tree trunks

and at the other end of the one of the left are these:
Further inside the park is a Human Clock, which I had to try out.
I’ve inverted the photo rather than stand on my head so you can see the two sets of numbers in pink and blue.
The idea is to stand on the month, and with the sun behind you, your shadow shows the time.
I stood on November and my shadow fell between the blue 12 and 1.
I looked at my watch and it was 12.40, so pretty damn close!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Excellent photos šŸ˜€ And I’m glad you all had time to stretch your legs.
    I love to see art made with Nature in mind, and those benches are perfect. šŸ™‚

  5. That human clock is pretty cool! Darn accurate. The park itself looks very soothing and a nice tranquil place to wander around.
