Installation, signs of spring and my country.

1. A sphere of found objects strung on monofilament in Tunbridge Wells Art Gallery.

2. Hazel catkins and bluebell shoots in the woods.

3. Showing off the English countryside to Christine.

  1. For the anniversary of your 1000th post, I recall two in particular among the first few that I read nearly two years. One was about an old man outside supermarket trying to talk to a tethered dog, and the dog's lack of intererest in his conversation.
    The other, possibly in the same post, is a description of a complex embroidery operation, in which you describe with great precison, the satisfaction of achieving the final twist or knot. Or was it a piece of unravelling? I have tried to find the post or post's in your archive, without success. But I remember reading both of them to a friend without the internet, as an example of the simple ingenuity of Three Beautiful Things. Congratulations on your millenium.

  2. Yes, congratulations on your milestones. I don't comment much, but I read your posts first thing every day to start myself off in the right direction: looking for beautiful things (and finding them!)

    You've inspired me, and after reading you for a while I challenged myself to post EVERY DAY, always beginning with something that made me laugh.

    Thank you and congratulations!

  3. Wow, that makes over 3,000 beautiful things. Impressive.
    For today
    4. Anticipating the flowers blooming through the snow (there is snow, no?)

  4. Not I think the first one. I seem to remember something more fine and complex on the embroidery front. Perhaps I have mixed it up with something else. But certainly the old man addressing the dog in baby talk, was one of my starting points. Cheers.

  5. Plutarch -- What about this one?

    Joe in Vegas -- yes there's snow. I'm working from home because of it. I haven't seen any flowers peeping yet, but I'm very much enjoying being wrapped in my quilt.

    Sonnjeab -- You say you don't comment much, but you're one of the people I think of as regulars, so you've obviously made an impression somewhere along the line.

  6. That's the one. Perhaps, my favourite! Though the merit is in the act of catching moments every day, rather than in any particular moment.
