A sculpture at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park “Litter” by Leo Fitzmaurice. Cast in bronze and painted white. Fitzmaurice saw what he took to be a field of white rabbits but on investigation they were the bags discarded after having eaten the picnic. These are just two of maybe a dozen "rabbits".

So where we have a picture of a hoarding round a building site. So not really camouflage, merely masking the site from view. But there is an imitation blue plaque on the hoarding.
So who was Norman Wilkinson?
Wikipedia comes to the rescue: “Norman Wilkinson CBE RI (24 November 1878 – 30 May 1971) was a British artist who usually worked in oils, watercolors and drypoint. He was primarily a marine painter, but he was also an illustrator, poster artist, and wartime camoufleur. Wilkinson invented "Dazzle Painting" to protect merchant shipping during World War I.” So this is an example of Dazzle Camouflage, which works well at sea but not so well on a British street.
I didn't even know that there was a word "Camofleur" .

I had lots of ideas for this and eventually ran out of time and inspiration. This was a friut tree in an old walled garden. It was the one without a name tag. The Named ones were wonderful old varieties of apples. I guess this wasn’t an apple because the buds had not started burst on those.
6. My own choice
In early February I did the classic walk from Malham. When we got to Malham Tarn the closer half of the lake was frozen over and, after a morning of clear blue skies, the clouds were beginning to fill the sky and block the sun. It was a great day out walking
