    1. Great topic, Jude. I was so pleased when I saw you would be hosting. I was thinking as I collected these that texture is almost the mark of any decent picture.

  1. I had a totally irrational urge to touch everything! The peony was a gasp for the sudden bright beauty of it, but my favorite for spending time on was the lichens on driftwood, which I found very soothing.

    1. That was really remarkable. I admired it in a garden in Florida. I liked the contrast with the one below it, which is from Llandudno in Wales. Although I can see if they just come across as being largely the same, they are quite different for those of us who linger and their textures are different – the washed wood, open and yielding, almost like loofah; the rock, solid and ancient, although you feel you could just pick the fossils out if you were minded to.
