Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

We came across this delightful plant centre today. No frills, no cafe, no toilets, no gift shop – just plants and compost. Really good plants at that and all at very good prices. It’s a lovely family run place called Shirley’s. Shirley herself is an incredibly fit and healthy woman with the clearest eyes and skin I have seen on anyone for a long time.

I just love all these signs, made out of anything that will take some text. I mean, why throw away an old cupboard door when you can use it for a sign?

I especially love the rusted up old ice cream cart – ice creams haven’t been 6 pence for years!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

Author: Nancy Power

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'

    1. Oh my god, I didn’t think about that!!! This place has been going for ever though…maybe they get away with it because it is family run? Like, ‘cos you don’t need H&S if it’s family….?
      Well, I won’t tell if you won’t.
