May Scavenger Hunt

So...I saw this roughly about a month ago and was a teensy weensy bit excited about it and decided I simply HAD to get involved or else I was going to have some serious FOMO. (Fear of Missing Out).

This cute blog called Live Love Craft Me organises a monthly scavenger hunt for bloggers to be involved in whereby a list of words is set for the month, and then at the end of the month you simply post your photos that you have interpreted from those words. I had to get on board!

So here are my photos for the May Scavenger Hunt. Duh duh duh duuuuuuuh!


I immediately knew what I was going to do for this one as soon as I saw the word. This picture is taken in the woods behind my house, and these paths are created all over the place by the deer that regularly use them. 


This is a cattle hide that adorns the wall of one of the buildings at work. It's really soft to touch, and of course very hairy!


I don't know if this is really naughty but I've repurposed this photo from my Garden Motivation post. I love growing my own food, and I'm hoping that everything within this little veggie plot in my garden will be very edible.


It was quite by chance that Rick pointed out this butterfly and I was all "Oh look a Small Skipper" and then I was like "oooh...Small!" It just happened.


When I was doing my identification module at college, we did a whole bit on bumbleebees because there's a lot of different species, and our teacher showed us this poem. I quite liked it. It made me laugh,


My hands, doing some weeding standard. I really hope one of the other bloggers managed to capture some dead man's fingers for this one, I couldn't find any!


So, this is vintage Ellie. As you can see, from a very early age I was rocking the wellies and Gilet look. And it appears that we kept massive chickens. I mean seriously, was I just small or are those chickens huge? The caravan in the back ground was permanently there and we used it as a play house, or sometimes we'd have camp outs in the garden...but in the caravan.


I really loved the shadows in this bit of oak woodland. The leaves aren't quite fully formed yet so there's lots of dappled spots of light coming through. Beautiful!

View from a Window

This was my favourite one! This is how Bosun let's us know that he wants to come back in. I can see this kitchen window from the sofa in the living room, and I always crack up when I see this happy little face asking to be let back in,

My Own Choice

I really love, and I mean LOVE the texture of fallen dead wood. Fallen dead wood is a fantastic habitat for insects which means that it attracts loads of birds, and I just think it's so photographable!!

Well I had such a lot of fun doing this, do go and check out Hawthorn's blog and have a look at what some of the other bloggers have thought of for this Scavenger hunt.

  1. Lovely Ellie and glad you joined in too. My favourites would have to be your bluebell wood and dog (envious), but I'm also fascinated by insects, so that deserves a mention too. I find these challenges great, except when I have an idea and then you can't seem to find it. Have a good weekend and take care.

  2. Love the huge chickens! Great, professional looking photos which put mine to shame. Best photo? Path!

    1. Thank you. Bluebells are my favourite flower so I had to squeeze them in somewhere!

  3. I love the path through the bluebells, it makes me want to follow it! I have to say I noticed the amazing wood pile in your through the window photo, rather than the dog ;). I love how everyone interprets these categores all so different!

    1. Thanks! The woodpile is more out of necessity than aesthetic as our hot water and heating all comes from our wood burner! Glad it's being appreciated.

  4. Excellent photos! Love the path (bluebells abound!) I can 'smell' them from here :) So glad you joined in and my favourite photo? It has to be own choice for the very reasons you chose it!

    1. Thank you so much for letting me join in! Xx

  5. The butterfly is gorgeous! SO bright!

    1. Thank you :-) I do have a soft spot for the Small Skipper x

  6. Lovely pictures. Love them all and especially the look of expectation on Bosun's face!

  7. I'm so glad you joined in Ellie!!! Your photos are marvellous! I love how much joy and humour Bosun brings to your life! (and impressive wood supply!)
