Gonzales Hill Evening

Up the steps

Up the steps

On another lovely evening Opal and Agathe accompanied the human and her favourite photographer on a post-prandial jaunt up Gonzales Hill.

On the way up the girls found what looked like giant-sized dandelions, but are perhaps salsify plants….

  1. more great photos!! The Quimper HItty photographer is such an artist with that lens. Here in MO we call that plant Goats Beard…and it is indeed of the salsify family. The girls are a delight as always.

    • We always like it when the favourite photographer captures the girls in their glorious fun. I took most of the pictures on this jaunt, but he took the pictures with the Salsify/Goatsbeard, and the Observatory. He was also very useful at herding the butterfly into range for Agathe to get her picture taken with it!

    • Thank you – the girls are requesting buttons instead of pins to hold their clothes closed, but I have told them it is a well-known doll-clothes fastening tradition to use pins.
