#WordlessWednesday – Which Way Does The Wind Blow?

 

I thought the formations of these trees on my dog walk yesterday were amazing, and although it was such a still day, you can guess which way the wind normally blows, can’t you?

Amazing over 50’s

Once again I am excited to introduce another guest to my series:

Amazing over 50’s

I’m inviting and featuring ‘Mid-lifers’ who are enjoying life over 50 and who are happy to shout out about great health, fitness, lifestyles, work or their achievements etc, but more importantly who are embracing this time of their lives with pride.

This month I introduce Rachel Ward as my tenth and Christmassy guest to this series.

Rachel is a writer and artist and although she has had to deal with quite a stressful few years, she has managed to keep going by writing and publishing novels and developing her artistic talents.

I do love unusual clocks.

This unusual clock called The Hastings Clock stands proudly in Rotherham and was erected in 1912 to commemorate the Coronation of King George V & Queen Mary on 22 June 1911.

I did wonder what the relevance of the hooves were under the large planter.

After doing a little research I came across this blog called ‘Memorial Drinking Fountains’ which explained it wasn’t only a clock tower, but also a drinking fountain.

The large planter was a drinking receptacle for horses, (hence the hooves).  There are smaller planters around the other side which were water fountains for the people of Rotherham to enjoy a drink of water.

I think it’s a beautiful clock and drinking fountain, what do you think?

The Ice-cream seller cruises around York on the River Ouse selling ice cream to boaters and people on the banks.  Isn’t this a fantastic idea? 🙂
