My Sunday Photo – 29th April 2018

read text for a detailed description of photo

What do you see when you look at this photo?

Do you see the pillars with their uneven stones, standing tall and inviting the the still leafless branches to crawl and caress them. Soon, they will blossom with new life and the stones will contrast their bright summer colours.

How about the fresh green grass, a canvass for the tiny flowers, playing peek-a-boo. The tiny yellow petals adding a certain vibrancy to the pallet.

Then there is the white washed building, pale and grey with bursts of colour from the blue-green window frames and roof edges, leading your eye away and seeming to sink into the grass.

Does your eye follow the stone path, leading upwards and turning just out of view. Do you wonder where it goes to next, where does it lead?

Maybe you notice the barn in the distance. Old but warm and inviting. Perhaps you’d like to go there, find out what that light is shining in the window.

Do you notice the big tall green tree brushing the edge of the barn’s roof with a rough caress. Or  the tall barren trees in the background waving their arms in the pale blue sky.

So many things to see, such a story to tell.

Do you want to know what I see?


Arrrrggghhh! Not the most welcoming sight for a wheelchair user!

    What a beautiful scene. I was drawn to the path and what might lie beyond it. The steps must be an absolute nightmare for you.

    Ahh! I saw the photo, knowing I was reading your blog and thought Ugh! steps too! So unfair.
    It is a very pretty photo though x

      Kim, I actually came down these steps on my crutches and my wheelchair was fetched and waiting for me at the bottom. I think it took me about 15 minutes. I felt quite sad seeing the others trotting up and down this path. I didn’t attempt it again (it was a killer for me) and I had to be transported by car to the front of the building in the distance. I kept smiling though x

    As soon as I saw the photo from this angle I thought, hum, how would you get up those?

    I see a walkway into a hidden garden

    Have a good Sunday

    Hi Anne, you did make me laugh. My eyes are first drawn to the steps too, but for totally different reasons to you, it’s the grass that draws me. Then the stone wall and the still sleeping plant growing over the top. Next time you share this photo, fingers crossed there’s a ramp running beside the steps.

    A lovely photo! I like green growing over stones. Steps are quite unfair. I am sorry you had to deal with them in such a lovely setting.

    What a beautiful photo. Sorry, you had to deal with that though. Hugs xx

    I remember being stuck at the bottom of steps when I had pushchairs. I can see your frustration at seeing steps every day.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
