My next door neighbour passed away a few months ago and I think it's time I gave her a tribute.
We shared a fence... a fence that stopped her little dog from running away.
A fence that has been shared all over the world.
June was in her 90's when she passed away... nursed at home she died in her own bed.
I first met June chatting over our garden fence in April 2005.
90+ years of age but what a past... a Vogue Magazine model in her youth.
She passed away in May... we didn't even know she was ill.
She had called around one morning and gave Mandy this lovely little pottery wren.
" I am having a tidy up" she said... " It's for Andrew I know he loves the birds"
It now sits on top of my PC and I will treasure it for ever.
This is one of my partner Mandy's images captured last week...
...she isn't here for a few days so I might get away with sharing it.
I introduced her to photography and she snaps away no problem but has no real interest in the outcome.
I show her the results and blog comments when shared and she is chuffed to bits (pleased) but that's all.
Her pleasure is all about watching nature...and enjoying the great outdoors.
