This last weekend has been full of collective activity and I’ve loved it. Saturday seven of us hiked together and on Sunday four of us hiked up to the Nine Standards Rigg. Something I’d wanted to do for a long time. Thankfully the weather held for most of the way just closing in as we reached the magnificent line of cairns.
Companions rest and take in the view
before entering mist where stand the mysterious Nine Standards Rigg.
we made flowers like these…
…Kanzashi, Japanese Folded Fabric Flowers. Our instructor inspiring us with her enthusiasm. The bunch of flowers was a gift which I treasure.
Thanks to all who joined in this weekend. Both those who were physically there and those who were in contact via text from London and the North East. And our friend from Manchester who nearly joined us. Next time perhaps.

What lovely flowers – I’ve never seen artificial flowers I have any time for before. Lovely, fun. I’d have loved the hike too.
I havent commented lately but had to say thank you for calming photos of your lovely hike. It’s time to head up to the Sierras in California this weekend for a small hike…I was inspired to get off my rearend and enjoy nature.
Found it interesting that you would pick up a sense of calm from the photographs. Going back and looking at them I can see what you see. Have a great time up in the Sierras. And take care out there. Nice to hear from you.
These fabric flowers are so not trying to be something that they are not. They are funky flowers, in a beautiful blown glass vase too. Yes you would have enjoyed the walk.
All socked in with cloud and mist this morning.
