Leazes Park, Berries

We don't yet know a identification name for this tree but it looks really nice in winter when it has its berries on.

Newcastle Quayside

Jeff took these photos of Newcastle quayside and buildings beyond from the Gateshead side of the Tyne.

Tynemouth Long Sands

A recent visit to Tynemouth Long Sands saw the afternoon light fading fast. Look at the horizon to see the December afternoon light.

Wintry Foliage

Carved Tree, Been there for Years

This artwork was made from the trunk of a dead tree.

Leazes Park again.

I had a long break from blogging as I was at Throssel Hole for a couple of weeks, one of them on the Segaki retreat, which was quite an experience, then when I got back I didn't have any free time until just recently.

I have discovered some interesting facts about growing trees and bushes, one of these is that you can grow trees and bushes from "root balls" and all kinds of these are available on ebay!
