Lunch prepared by Anthony Sargeant on 16th April 2017. Squid pieces on green salad with homemade wild garlic pesto, black olive tapenade, greenolive tapenade and spicy pepper luteniza on toast quarters. The wild garlic for the pesto gathered by Tony from the quiet wooded lanes around his Shropshire home
This ancient oak stands at the T junction of two lanes just a little way from the Shropshire home of Anthony Sargeant. The lanes around this part of Shropshire are punctuated with old Oak trees. From time to time in high winds branches will break off but otherwise they stand solid and naturally gaunt. Just about to burst into new growth as the leaf buds open in mid-April. (yesterday when this photograph was taken it was Easter Saturday – 15th April 2017)
Many people regard dandelions as a weed but Anthony Sargeant likes them – this is the first he has seen this Spring. It was photographed in the hedgerow bounding his Shropshire, England home yesterday 30th March 2017.
Spring has arrived in England and the primroses are blooming all over the garden and in the hedgerows. Anthony Sargeant, Tony, took this photograph late in the afternoon of the 30th March 2017 in the garden of his Shropshire Home.
Sensational evening sky photographed from the garden of the Shropshire (UK) home of Tony Sargeant a few weeks ago. The old Oak tree silhouetted against the evening sky is part of an ancient hedgerow separating two fields where sheep graze.
This photograph was taken by Anthony Sargeant from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home on 30th December 2016 at around midday. The view is towards the East looking across the River Corve which lies just below the house surrounded by water meadows. In the middle distance sheep are grazing in the meadow on the far side of the river. The English countryside has a beautiful transclucent quality in the winter when the deciduous trees have shed their leaves.
