August Photo Challenge

The them for August from Wild Daffodil is a tricky one, it’s flake. I’m tempted to include a photo of a rather nice chocolate bar, but that would end up with me eating it!

This is the bark of a beautiful tree at Kew Gardens.


I’ve had these three guineafowl chicks for probably 10 years now, the coating on them is getting decidedly flaky, but I still love them, they have so much character!


The seat on my rose arbour is in need of a new coat of paint as it’s coming off in large flakes, I don’t think it helped when the chickens perched on it during their last winter with us! Rosie doesn’t care if it’s a bit flaky, it’s a cool spot!


I took lots of photos of eucalyptus during our holiday in Australia, I love looking at their bark, this one isn’t too flaky, but some have huge areas peeling.



About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

  3. Oh I love this post – even though you found the subject tricky you tackled it with aplomb! Your first photo is intriguing – I keep going over and over it, the texture and colours are wonderful.
    Those metal chicks are SO full of character – enchanting!
    Thank you so much for this really fascinating entry. 🙂

    OOoh, we have a lots of flaky wood trim at the moment….don’t think I take a photo though. Your arbor is a decidedly nicer example! Love the Guinea fowl!

    I think you did very good for the theme without falling to the delicious Flake chocolate temptation! My favourite is your bark picture, I just love all the different shades and shapes, it’s really pretty ❤
