An omnium-gatherum of images

Having used Gallimaufry and Salmagundi in past posts of oddments, I looked in the dictionary for something new to describe an odd collection. Omnium-Gatherum seemed to fit the bill.

As well as a collection of pictures I've taken over the last couple of months, I've included a couple of  sketches from my youngest daughter ( my bragging right ). She also has a blog page with lots of interesting pictures.

I'm quite chuffed with my last picture in this post.

  1. Lovely selection. Captures the feeling of spring. Those Texel lambs are so wee! And thanks for including my pics. X

  2. You have outdone yourself with these gorgeous photos!!! I would love to cuddle the lambs...and even the bull. LOL! Well, he looks sweet, anyway.

  3. Nice collection of photographs Jim. Looks like it will be a cracking Easter weather-wise for the young lambs to give them all a fine sheltered start in life. About time our poor wildlife had a respite and some sunny days.

  4. Some great photos there Jim. Your daughter is a very talented girl I like her style.


Thanks for all your comments. I may not get to reply to them all, but you may be sure they'll be appreciated.
