Nature's Whispers

This Alice was placed in the Cotswolds by Jasmine of the Nature's Whispers blog . Jasmine took a couple of pictures in the field where her daughter is buried. Then she posed Alice (below) at The Rollright Stones, which have a number of natural holes which are supposed to be lucky. I think Alice looks as if she were listening. 

Jasmine writes about grief and creativity as a healer on her blog. She is just learning about felting and dyeing, and has some wonderful pictures of Stonehenge at the Solstice.

Just took a quick peek at Jasmine's blog. Her Stonehenge is the real thing, no doubt about it.

I specially love the second shot of Alice through the stone - fits in with the Stonehenge motif.

Hi susan: I received my Alice in the mail yesterday. Thank you. now I'm going to have the spousal unit work it into some of his photos.

I like the Stonehenge motif. Coincidental Stonehenge design today on "A Writer's Notebook" which you can find here: http://rlbourges.wordpress.com/2009/07/01/this-is-not-stonehenge/

I think I need to invent words to use in my comments on your stuff. "Way cool" is just so anemic...Lots of catching up to do, and what a feast lies before me. Have taken a peek at the pictures in the previous posts and all I can say is: "Way retrooki!"*

*Okay. I admit it. This is my word verification word and not one I made up. Sigh.

These are wonderful photos of Alice in the Cotwolds.
I agree Jasmine has wonderful images. Her felt slippers are amazing.

Lovely + summerly - glad that she´s exposed to more fresh air than her Berlin sister gets...

Both of these pictures are wonderful. Alice BELONGS back in England, I think (although I know that she really enjoyed her time in California).

I would love to receive an Alice as well. I would take her back to her origins (Oxford) for a visit. Are you taking requests?

This is a touching picture of Alice. I'm going to check out Jasmine's blog.

The Rollright stones are interesting. I believe that there is something a bit odd about the magnetic field there and there have been tales that photographs could go funny. I don't know if this happens with digital but we took some photos once with colour film and they did come out very oddly exposed and with the sky greenish instead of blue. The other pictures were all well exposed and only the Rollright ones were odd colours. We had a pretty fancy camera, and knew how to use it, too.

However, I just visited their site and I see that these days they have wardens and can be booked for private events, etc. which dismays me a bit. I suppose the events are druids or whatever, and not wedding receptions etc. but I have to say that I prefer ancient sites just to be standing there pretty well forgotten. I suppose that is too much to hope for.

Have been reorganising my blog roll Susan and got you on it at last. I wonder if you could make it possible to comment with name and url, or even anon, as I always have huge trouble using Google blogger account, I don't know why but it takes about 3 goes before it will accept it, if it ever does.
