Ness of Brodgar Open Day……

The sun shone…..lots happening…..lots of pics……


My faves are….stone nestling in fevvers and the re-creation of a big fancy pot…..

It’s so large
And It’s Grooved
It was merry hell
To move

The big pot, the big pot…………. https://www.nessofbrodgar.co.uk/its-large-its-grooved-ware-and-now-available-to-view-as-a-3d-model/


Landscape Art?  Or well-constructed stooks of hay?



A seasonal observation…

Six Linnets

This morning

Six Linnets.

Feeding on seeds.


Feeding on the seeds of Self-heal.

Feeding, Healing me

While watching them.


That’s what happens

If you let life, live

In your gravel.



While I’m playing with numbers….

Nine Little Figurines

Nine little figurines

From the Bronze Age


Some placed ‘neath Standing Stones

Some used as weights?


Some placed by the hearth

To keep the place safe
