  1. oh my gosh! WHAT AMAZAZING impressions.. absolut perfect photo art!


  2. Oh; what awesome pictures Patty! Thanks so much for sharing. I do see the hearts in the clouds and in the one picture above the heart, I see a shark-like shape with a fin and in another a swan! The church windows are stunning; I could sit in front, of them, forever just looking at them.

    Have a wonderful day! xxoo M


  3. Love to see all these photos Patty. It is as if I’m travelling with you. I’ve spotted the heart in the last cloud photo without peeking 🙂
    Now I’m inspired to do a hunt the coming week while I’ve some time off of work xox


  4. That stained glass just blows my mind. I am such a sucker for it! And I love your finding the hearts in the clouds. I love the scavenger hunt idea. Maybe soon I’ll do that, too!

    Regards and Blessings

  12. How I enjoyed this trip and of course your wonderful photography.
    Scottish clouds, oh let me tell you I know them only too well LOL.
    My favourite, the farm. I could happily adopt Mr Porky, he is so cute as are the goats.
    Such an enjoyable post.


  13. A great selection. The Pitcher and Piano’s stained glass windows are beautiful. I love the Jackdaws. A couple visit my feeders but they are very timid and fly off at any movement by me, unlike the ones in Cork


  14. gosh patty absolutely amazing…their clouds are to0 heavy , not like our clouds ..lol… love the hearts…I could pick them 🙂 funnt Charlie just posted pics of blarney castle this morning, she has been on a weekend tour….:)


  15. Gorgeous photos! You really embraced each item and brought out the best! I especially love both your benches and the beautiful stained glass (plus the goats!).


  16. Great, great pictures! You do such a wonderful job with any task you take on!


  17. Again…beautiful photos. Love that you spotted hearts in the clouds. That seemed like it would be a really hard one to find. I so want to do this next year.


  18. Gorgeous photos Patty 🙂 It’s so much fun going along with you and Mr Magpie on this scavenger hunt!!! ~Sophia


  19. Oh my word, this has been a wonderful game the photo’s AMAZING..
    The Jackdaws are so cheeky and so kool, looooove to see Mr Maggie pie in Scotland, I think he would look fabulous in a kilt :)..The wall behind with the stone, in York is awesome. The farm, fantastic, oh my goodness the animals are so sweet, love the shot with the pig, with the sun rays, fabulous..Now those clouds, hmm I take a lot of pictures of them, love clouds, hearts would certainly appear in the sky for you two lovely couple, looooove the Scottish sky’s. The misty hills of Ireland a dream, and the lake districts is gorgeous.. Those stain glass windows are a sight to behold. Then 3 trucks in different countries, amazing… It has been a wonderful adventure joining you’s in the scavenger hunt, I had a fabulous time, can’t wait for the next installment. Thanks so much and have a fabulous day, big hugs….


  20. Oh, what wonderful pictures! Each one is my favorite until I get to the next and then I have another favorite. What a terrific way to fulfill the scavenger hunt with your holiday photos. If pressed to name one favorite I would have to pick the Stonehenge picture with the heart cloud because of my long-standing (LOL) connection to the site. 🙂


  21. You took enough photos to cover two or three lists. I am really enjoying not only the awesome photos on the list, but also this trip you took to the British Isles. That photo of Mr. Magpie on the bench next to that iconic red phone booth is PRICELESS. Glad to see phone booths are still around in some parts of the world.

    I feel like I’m still taking that trip with you, as I peruse these photos this morning. I look forward to part 3, too.


  22. Love to see all these wonderful photos. Thanks for sharing.


  23. Wow, Patty, your images are outstanding; so beautiful! Amazing skills you have there!


  24. Our days of travel are over, due to health, but your photos brought back some wonderful memories of trips to England, Ireland, and Scotland in the past. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.


  25. What a wonderful way to share your fabulous photos.Such fun! =)


  26. Wonderful photos! Love the ‘hearts’ & those beautiful windows! xxx


  27. What fun! Your stained glass photos are absolutely stunning.


  28. These aren’t easy! I love all your pictures! Now I will see hearts in the sky! 🙂


  29. oh my traveling word! those are spectacular photos! I had some catching up to do but I lingered over the emerald isles and got lost in the scenes! That was some trip. I especially loved those country side photos and the ones with the cows and the clouds we must discuss!!!
