NGS Knowle Farm
Last week, my NGS photography project took us to Knowle Farm in Loders near Bridport. An absolutely beautiful Dorset village, with cottages of the most gorgeuos buff coloured stone.

Min största favorit på uteplatser - alla kategorier - är naturlig sjösten, eller sjösingel. Den jag har hemma på vår uteplats är plockad från vår egna strand på landet, bilden ovan. (Lääääääääääääääääääääääängtar dit!!) Bild Flisby Det enklaste och mest effektfulla är att bara rada upp massa sjösingel (kallas…
