Pollards And Barns

14 May

pollards

Husb and I took a walk around Avebury village over the weekend. There are a few medieval barns, thatched of course and lots of trees, quite a lot had been pollarded. The older barns are a bit higgledy piggledy, bent and sagging with age. I had a scribble. Of course!

Taking Tea

13 May

tea at avebury

Husb and I had a few days away in England, staying with some lovely friends. We stopped for a break at the ancient site of Avebury. We have been there before, but to see the Neolithic stones. This time we visited the fabulous medieval manor on the site. We had a nice cup of tea and cake in the manor’s tea room. Of course, I had to have a scribble, into my tiny flowery sketchbook.

Although my visit to Avebury on Friday was a quick one, I spent some time looking closely at the magnificent stones there. They are covered with fantastic growths of lichens and the surface of the stones has been weathered and eroded across the millenia. I took a close-up drawing of a section of this stone.
