Mayday awayday

The 1st of May was going to be the day that I tidied my desk, tidied my computer files and did heaps of other overdue tasks. But the sun was shining, the birds were singing and, well, it was the first of May. Not only that, I needed yet more plastic boxes to store yet more stash. And when it comes to plastic boxes, only Thing Me Bobs shops have the type I like at a price I like. And is there a thing Me Bobs in Cambridge? Why, no. Instead, I have to make the difficult choice between going to Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds or Ely.

I'm glad that I chose Ely: look what I saw!



Foal dozing near the cathderal...


Flowers sprouting out from the top of a wall (I'm taking quite a few wall photos at the moment, and am thinking of doing some wallflower pots)...


And a wonderfully gnarled tree.

I came home with 2 boxes and also (mysteriously) rather a lot of books and magazines (some were gifts, but most were of the knitting and crochet variety).

I like that tree.

Beautiful pictures! I think whatever the weather, Ely is beautiful. Thom has a picture which I am sure is of the same horses which he took a couple of weeks ago :)

I do love Ely, been a long time since I've seen it. Great shots.

Ely was a splendid choice. I'm lucky enough to walk past these treasures every day. For a teeny tiny city where not much happens, it has a surprising amount going for it.

We must do the tearooms sometime. :)
