Grow; Old but Never Up

Photobucket
Well it was Gardens Open day here in the village this weekend just gone and despite living here for fifteen years we'd never gone and had a look around the various gardens and thought it was high time we did just that!

It also proved to be good inspiration for photography as we got to see the village from aspects never seen before, including a rather hair raising trip up the church tower, more to come on that.

One of the gardens we walked into was a complete surprise as it was filled with an enormous railway layout! There were four older gents there running these beautiful models around, one was actually coal fired and every few circuits had to be stoked up, amazing! Anyone who knows me knows I love this sort of thing, I refuse to grow up and I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one :)

I have another couple from here that I might post.....

Ah, i love these too. This is a passion that stays with you forever, no matter how old you are. I wish i had a son to bring him a railway so we could play together. :)

You just can't take away our toys from us :)
By the way, I discovered it only a few days ago myself, but sometimes the best photo location are just inside our homes or around us.
You never know what you can find next to you :P
