I hope you've had a good week.
Now that Autumn is here and the leaves on the trees are changing colour, I've decided to find five things that rhyme with brown! I know, it's a bit daft but why not!
1 Brown - Autumn leaves
Well, brown, orange and red really. It's all beginning to look a lot like Autumn, everywhere you go!
2 Town - Town Hall
On my way to the Auction yesterday, the Town Hall looked splendid in the sun with the baskets of flowers still in bloom and the bunting flapping about in the breeze.
3 Crown - Portrait
The Queen became the longest reigning monarch recently and to commemorate the day Artist, Animator and Designer Quentin Devine was asked by The Royal Mint to create an effigy of The Queen using 1,952 one penny coins. Have a look at his website as he's made all sorts of things from carving Brazil nuts to look like footballers, making a photo of Jack Bauer from 24 out of London postcards to designing a jockey to go on the famous Huffington white horse. He lives in Camberley which was the subject of last week's Five on Friday.
4 Down - Downton Abbey
Downton Abbey is back on Tv for it's last series. It is filmed at local Highclere Castle. Sadly, I haven't made it there for a visit yet but you'll be the first to know when I do! Incidentally, I've been enjoying some old episodes of Jeeves and Wooster starring Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie which was also filmed there. I keep expecting Carson the Downton butler to come through the door. I wonder how he would get on with Jeeves? Other news on the Downton front, I bumped into an old friend who told me she is one of the supporting artists on Downton this series. Exciting. I will have to look out for her.
5 Grown (!) - The Chillies and Peppers have really Grown!
Here are the beauties.
Do pop over to Amy's for her Five on Friday link up, there's loads going on. Thanks Amy.
Bye for now.
