Herons

I was watching a young heron beside River Tweed, when I noticed this older heron up in the tree, definitely keeping watch on its offspring down below.

The shadows of trees look like runnels of water travelling through the wild garlic beside the River Leet.

The Cement Menagerie 1

The Cemenrt Menagerie 1The Cement Menagerie is a piece of true folk art set in the village of Branxton, which is at the site of the Battle of Flodden in North Northumberland.  This garden of  animals, people, inscriptions and angels was created by John Fairnington to delight his only son, Edwin, who suffered from cerebral palsy. Edwin lived in the village all his life, looked  after  by John and his wife Mary, and was apparently a happy person.  John Fairnington, who was a joiner by trade, created life-size drawings of all the figures, and his friend James Beveridge, who was also a pensioner, made the creatures out of cement.  The Cement Menagerie is in The Fountain House Garden.  It is a strange,beautiful and touching work of art.
