I am not very good

at posting blog entries lately. I  think the novelty has warn off. Either that or it is more of a winter thing.
September has been a busy month. We missed Rushbearing this year as John was working but went to both weekends of The Saltaire Festival, the first weekend included the craft fair and the second the food stalls. Libby and Steve came and of course Jaco came to visit.

He had his 3rd birthday on Friday.

we saw lots of squirrels in the park and this one was very happy to pose.

On Tuesday John and I went to Golden Acre Park and Adel Dam Nature Reserve  for John's birthday. We had not been before. And we were not disappointed.

We spent quite a while in the bird hide in the nature reserve watching the birds on the bird table and feeders.

It was quite difficult to get good photographs as they grapped some seed and flew off. It was a great day and we will will definitely go there again.

The last Saturdayof the month was our annual visit to Yarndale
 We saw alpacas,
angora bunnies,

rare breeds of sheep
and I  bought several balls of yarn, one of Jackie Cardy's beautiful brooches, a bunny kit and a doll pattern. Cannot wait until next year.

Great goodies from Yarndale and such lovely pictures you captured of the animals and birdlife on your outings.

Looks like you've been very busy Wendy. Love the photos.

Are you going to the knitting and stitching show this year? I'm giving it a miss this year.

Bet Jaco and I would get on sooo very well, cos we both have squirrels in common.

Isn't it wonderful to see interesting things on your walk. Sometimes we miss so much when we rush about but just by going for a leisurely walk we see things and their beauty which otherwise We seem to miss.
