Cutie Pop. Mr Peanuts

Well one day upon visiting a car boot sale we came across a lovely hamster 
cage it was  shaped just like a circus.
One of my lovely friends and I where in town and we came across this little 
fellow in the pet shop.
Of course there was no question we had to bring him home.
My dear friend and I went on manoeuvres and brought him in the house in-disguise.
It didn't take long before everyone in our home fell in love with him.
We have had him coming up near a year now.
Little Peanuts is just so cute hence his nickname.....
Cute Pop.

Remembrance Sunday March Llanfyllin

In Flanders Fields 

In Flanders Fileds the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row in row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce hear amid the fund below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, through poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Llanfyllin Army Cadets leading the march 

The service was really moving, attended by many.

The Northern Lights Iceland .

Not the easiest of things to photograph. The Northern lights are extremely fast moving and forever changing in the night sky. We where taken to three different locations, to see the lights from the rocky outback to the edges of the sea shore. These lights are just amazing and very magical. An experience never to be forgotten. The Northern Lights Iceland.

The Ice Lagoon Icebergs. Iceland

This stunning collection of photographs are of the Ice Lagoon, Iceland. The lagoon is is the consequence of the melting glazier. Its hard to believe in just 80 years the lagoon which we sailed in the boat was once a glazier which went out into the sea. This is proof of the times we live in global warming. As the glazier has melted it has  left a stunning lagoon filled with icebergs some big some small. the icebergs are spread out as the lagoon leads into the sea. The glazier must have reached approx 1 mile away from the sea to where it once stood.
These next group of photographs are of the south coast of Iceland. It was a stunning day for our visit. We where told it is normally bitterly cold in these parts but alas the sun shone down. We stayed quite a few hours in these parts and watched as the sun began to set over the lagoon. The boat we went out on is similar to the duck amphibian boats that go over land and water. It was an amazing trip one I will treasure always in my memories. Welcome to the Ice Lagoon Iceland.
All these photographs are my own.
