No! You don't really like flowers do you?.....never have guessed!

I like these hydrangeas too......love the very delicate touch of the darks on the flower heads.

Joy, Val, Lori, Jillian, June, Mark, Paintingcarlan, Maureen - glad you liked yet another floral!

Maureen - where in Tyne & Wear? My mother hailed from Gateshead and many a childhood holiday was spent with my Aunt and Uncle in that town - the highlight of our stay being a trip to Whitley Bay (although my memories of those halcyon days are very vague after so many years! :wink2: )

Fancy that Sonia!
We live on the very edge of Gateshead (that's the postal address, rates etc to Sunderland) in Springwell Village, next door to Washington - know it?
So if you're ever back this way, let me know :D

Hi blumoon and bjcpaints - nice of you to drop by.

Maureen - I don't know Springwell. My aunt lived in the Low Fell area of Gateshead and I also recall visiting some cousins in Newcastle (over half a century ago!**). It brings back memories of trams, very steep cobbled streets bordered by terraced houses, and concrete back yards which gave access to the primitive toilet (the "netty"). It must be near 15 years since we visited the area - I'm sure I wouldn't recognise any of it.

It's amazing how a couple of words can trigger such a host of "lost" memories (if only I could remember what I did yesterday :confused: )
