A friend sent me a little card with this quotation on it:
“The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.”
I am an eternally curious (nosey?) person. I often follow the path of curious things, which sometimes leads to adventures and happy accidents…and sometimes to wasted time and dead ends.
Here are some things I saw out walking recently:
A boat called ‘Romance’…
A bear-face in a beam – do you see it, too?
Never forget to look UP! Look what I saw on a cafe ceiling, recently…wheat and coloured discs…
And, in my idea of heaven…a tiny secret garden in the middle of a big city…bursting with vegetables and herbs…
How do I know it was a secret garden? Well, firstly because it was tucked away in a corner you are unlikely to stumble on…and secondly, because the sign said so:
I hope you find some interesting things out walking this week. X

I love your photos, Helen! And brick paths between bursting vegetable patches – that’s what I aspire to.
Thanks, Sarah. That lovely little garden is directly behind Pip’s new house. How lucky is she??
We’re a little family of nosies – even my 7 year old is transfixed by other conversations and secret pathways and the odd things people do! Looking up and around and in and through – being curious about the world – is what I believe life’s about.
Me too, Kate! 🙂
