Hawthorn’s Photo Scavenger Hunt ~ March.

It feels good to join in again with Hawthorn’s Photo Scavenger Hunt this month. Heres what I came up with for the prompts.

Hole. I guess the most famous hole in Clitheroe ( teehee) is the one in the front of our tiny Castle Keep. Local legends to how it got there include Oliver Cromwell fireing a cannonball from Pendle Hill. Even less likely, the devil himself flung boulders at Clitheroe Castle, also from the top of Pendle. Which do you think?

Making. I attempted to make some Chocolate Truffles from my Eat What You Watch ~ A cookbook for Movie Lovers cookbook. They ended up looking more like onion bhajis! But they do taste like chocolate truffles. Success! The recipe is inspired by Vianne’s chocolate creations in the sweetly sensual film Chocolat starring Juliette Binoche and a yummy Johnny Depp. Well worth a watch by the way. 😊. These truffles are very rich though, I can only manage one with my mug of coffee..

Reading Now. You may be shocked to learn that I have never watched Star Wars! Yet I am reading this book by Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. From what I have read so far she was one very funny, bat crazy, inteligent and gutsy lady. Enjoying it so far. Oh yes I know, I am still using my snowflake duvet set. Hopefully this is not a future weather prediction!

Black & White. Last weekend we met a llama and some alpaca on a walk to a local village. This black & white llama was definitely the most inquisitive and demanding, he came trotting over when he saw us stop at the fence. Wil gave him a bit of loose hay, then he tried to chomp my rucksack! I do love llamas though and a couple of years ago I dragged my family on a llama Trek in the Lakes.

Starts with an H. Well I just had to include a picture of our gorgeous Hugo for this one didn’t I. I think he is as much a part of this blog as me really. πŸ™‚ Hugo is a three year old black labrador and we have had him since he was a wee pup. I definitely have a thing about labradors now as before Hugo there was Jake, who came with Wil ( his faithful shadow) when I met him. They are such a loyal , loving , mischievous breed of dog. I can’t imagine life without a labrador.


My Own Choice. The bright sunshine we have experienced recently has certainly brought out my blogs namesake, these cheery celandines. 😊

Happy Easter guys. Have a fantastic weekend.

  1. The chocolate truffles sound quite more-ish, I think I’d eat more than one with a coffee πŸ™‚ The celandines are a lovely colour too πŸ™‚

    1. I can see the devil being the culprit myself! Yes Wil definitely did come with a dog attached. Though he is not yet my hubby. We have been together 13 years but no wedding plans as yet! His dog Jakey became my greatest pal and I still miss him. Hugo is more like my fur baby. I spoil him far to much. πŸ™‚ x

  2. Beautiful celandines. Love black labs, my sister had one as a guide dog. The llama has such a funny expression and those truffles look very tasty:)

  3. Which to choose as my favourite……I love chocolate, celandines with their cheery faces; Chocolat, I’ve read the book twice and seen the film twice too; I too think the Devil story is more feasible than a cannon ball from Pendle; love Llamas and Alpacas and adore Labradors. Yes, I think my favourite will be Hugo the Labrador.

  4. You can only eat one chocolate truffle? Me thinks you did not try hard enough; I know I would have!!!! I prefer the story about Devil making the hole. I too like llamas and alpacas and, when in doubt, I call them Spitty Things. Celandines are one of the few wild flowers my Beloved can identify. I’ve noticed in our new garden, there are some growing; such cute and cheery flowers.

  5. I can’t think of anything more tasty that chocolate bhajis πŸ™‚ Was in Clitheroe on Saturday (at a most disappointing market) and today when visiting family, we love the castle – can see if from their lounge window.

  6. Lovely photos. Great story behind your hole photo, I’m sure it was the devil who made that hole. Hugo and the llama are both adorable.

  7. I always thought those flowers were buttercups or Mayflowers … good to know their proper name – they’re a lovely sight at this time of the year. And the truffles look divine – Chocolat is a fabulous film – that cookbook sounds like a great present for a movie fan πŸ™‚
    And it was definitely the devil πŸ™‚
