photoblog image Sandringham #4

Sandringham #4

On 6th.October I showed the clock above the main building in the stables block at Sandringham and this is another shot taken there of some of the cottages down one side of the courtyard.

You may remember seeing my picture of the Queens Royal Dustbin on 16th.September, well it is over by the open door near the end of the block.

Very instructive Brian: the scene complete with sky blue doors!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I like blue, but this shade is not my favourite.

Another nice one Brian. Did you go inside the museum?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, yes we did go in to the museum, some interesting stuff in there, I guess you went in there out of the rain.

The ground staff sure have there work cut out Briansmile
Nice shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, yes it is all very neat, fit for a Queen:-D
Those pots of plants give it a homely feel.
Brian Walbey: Very homely Bill, Maureen has loads of pots like these in our back garden, guess who has to shift them about smile
I find that the turquoise doors cheer up the building. Fine shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I guess the door colours do lift things against the very dark brickwork.

A fine row of cottages; no doubt kept for HM's flunkies or estate workers?
Brian Walbey: It was difficult to tell if these were still being lived in Alan, they are quite attractive from the outside.

Humph Lizzy
Brian Walbey: Lol, I really am very sorry, does this mean I miss out on a Knighthood:-D
