  • Enhancement ?

    Our roads are full of unnecessary street furniture, painted lines, signs and mess. So, what do we need? - Obviously a large, ugly structure in the middle of our local roundabout. I've no idea what it's supposed to represent but a large bit of...

  • Cat and Mouse or Cat amongst the Pigeons

    Just put some old bread out for the pigeons which had been hanging around pecking the lawn for some time. By this time Frankie had got tired of playing with his mouse on elastic so he was resting. Cat and Pigeons are so used to each other now they ...

  • Last Shop Standing

    Well, today the last branch of BHS closed for good, thanks to those greedy bu**ers who bled it dry. Although not to everyone's taste, it did a good line in basic clothing which everyone could afford, and some very nice home wares. I'll miss it, and...

  • Stuffed with Culture

    Had a wander round the National Portrait Gallery today and stumbled across the William Eggleston exhibition. Some good photos, but quite a small exhibition. Then I strolled around the BP Portrait Awards followed by a look at the Flemish masters in ...

  • Rats!

    It comes over from my neighbour's garden and jumps onto the feeder. Cheeky thing.

  • Can't Decide

    Have been looking through some photos and trying to decide whether I like some in b/w rather than colour. I like this one in both. Can't decide.

  • Another DIsappointment

    "The've" done it again. The new and, so-called, improved Tate Modern, once one of my favourite haunts, is now a huge jungle of concrete, stairs and lifts. The tenth floor is a viewing gallery, but apart from a couple of new restaurants, the only art...

    Ever looked down the spout of a watering can? You have now. :)

  • Waiting In

    Pouring with rain and no car. Have to wait in until it's had its MOT and service, so apart from doing the washing I'm faffing about on the computer. Here's another little shot from my trip to the forest last week. Some seed heads.

  • Girls Have Sheds Too

    Finally dry enough to put my new shed together. It's really neat and fills a gap in the fence nicely so I can't see so much into next door's garden, and it hides some, if not enough, of the monstrous extention being erected. It goes up another floo...

  • DPD are Sh*te

    Bad Show DPD. Waited in all day yesterday for a delivery but nothing arrived. Emailed the sender to find out what happened and was advised that the parcel was delivered to another house and signed for, despite big notices on my door asking that par...

  • Hosta la Vista

    This was a quick snap for the MNC yesterday so I thought I'd put it here rather than the gallery. Am waiting delivery of a new storage shed for the garden which should arrive some time between 9am and 1.30pm. That'll be 1.30pm then, taking up most...

    I love these bright little buttercups. This one was poking its head through some brambles.
