First Five Fragments for Friday – U.K. Edition

Your weekly offering of writing/art prompts.

Well, more than two weeks of travel has resulted in lots and lots of photos. I returned home last Sunday to a Minnesota landscape that is not particularly warm yet. My head is still swirling with recent experiences and fond memories of good friends, two things that are big plusses for creative work.

So, this first post-travel post (can I squeeze in the word post somewhere one more time?) is image-driven.


In the labyrinth at Cragside House and Gardens, Northumberland.
At Vindolanda, an ancient Roman fort near Hadrian’s Wall.

Door knocker at Durham Cathedral.

The Lindisfarne Priory at the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

Camden Town, London.

Happy Friday. Happy May!

  1. Hello! Yes, the grass is really that green. We spent most of our time in Northumberland and it was gorgeously green and lush….and windy. Our friends Oonah and Noel live there in a small town called Pegswood, about 15 miles outside of Newcastle. The area is rife with castles.


  2. Those are great photos. The grass in Northumberland is green but not as green as in Wales or Ireland where it tends to be wetter. I am so looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos. Kath is a really good photographer 🙂


  3. Oooh. Green, lush, magical.
    And the door knocker, the dragon and the dark angel spoke to me too.
    Thank you. My mind is wandering off, and I probably need to follow it.


  4. There are over 700 (yikes!!) photos on my computer waiting to be sifted through. Vindolanda was really something; I didn't know anything about it until Abby visited with her college design class the month before Mick and I visited Oonah.
