I was so glad to have my camera with me on Saturday afternoon when we went for a walk to the north of the village. The flowers on the Rapeseed Oil crop were really vibrant against the blue sky..
Given that it's been raining for weeks round here, the path was still incredibly dry in the next field..
We turned to look back towards the village and saw the usual 'huge Worcestershire skies'...
You could see that there had been plenty of rain when we got to the Droitwich canal. The water was really muddy and several inches higher than normal..
On Sunday we took both cars to the Prescott Hill Climb Charity event. Mark drove 'Annie' (right of pic) and I drove 'The Kitten' (middle of pic). This was the first time I'd actually been allowed to drive 'The Kitten'. Between you and me, I was really nervous. It would have been awful to have had an accident in Mark's baby!
This is our teddy bear mascot - Stirling (named after Sir Stirling Moss). I knitted his little scarf last summer and he has a collection of badges from some of the race events we have done in the last twelve months. He has a little rucksack on his back and 'aviator shades' - one cool bear!!!
Here's Mark junping into our friend's car for another trip up the track. D. is a lovely guy who comes over from Essex espcially for this event. He likes to stay in a B+B near our house and we spend the whole weekend catching up on gossip.
