June Squares | Roofs

It’s the end of June and another 30 day challenge from Becky.  ‘The Life of B’

A difficult decision as to what to post for my final roof. Should it be one of the most magnificent roofs in the world – The Taj Mahal? Or a simple slate roof with a dovecote on top? Or what about a Chinese pagoda style roof? A glass roof? Cruves? Red tiles? Round tiles? Another tin roof? Or the roof of a car.

So many choices. So many still not posted.

I’ll go with these splendid red Norfolk clay tiles and the sumptuous sail-capped roof of the Cley windmill. Where you can have a meal, or even stay in the windmill itself. Rent the entire place for Christmas with the whole family if you like. You get great views over the Cley marshes towards the sea and the bird life in winter is magnificent.

I hope you have enjoyed the month of squares and roofs. I certainly have and it has been great fun sifting through the archives and discovering just how many roofs I actually have. Once again thanks to the wonderful Becky for hosting this fun challenge. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us in September. No pressure Becks 😀

June Square | 30th June

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Yes! I like this angle because it captures several roofs. And I haven’t featured a windmill all month 🙂

  1. This is a really great shot, Jude, not only because of the windmill but because of the roof in the foreground and the clouds in the background. That windmill looks like an enticing place to stay!

    1. It was a fun winter break: we got stuck because it snowed and we couldn’t get the car out of their car park! Managed to get around on foot and by bus.

        1. No, we’ve not changed plans. Just a bit difficult to nail down. As I just said to Cathy, James and family hope to come out around 26th October and Lisa 4th November, for the big birthday 🙂 🙂

        2. Azores but the time of year is wrong. It’s working out rather strangely this year. And anyway, what does it really matter? 🙂 🙂

        3. I know nothing about the Azores other than they are Portuguese. I fancy Madeira, I think you have been there?

  2. I also considered the Taj Mahal for my final. 🙂 Love this photo you’ve chosen, though, such a higgledy piggledy sort of building! It reminds me of illustrations of the “shoe” that “the old woman” lived in.
