Storm’s a-coming

Dorset 2012

This was on the Jurassic Coast one summers day nine years ago. Its had been gloriously sunny up to this point but photographically this was the star of the day. I don’t recall getting wet but my sister’s car was nearby.

Memory Sunday #9

Now redundant

Once upon a time people used to write letters on paper and stick stamps on them and entrust them to the postman to deliver – which surprisingly often they did. happily we have more efficient ways to communicate today. This may end up in a museum – one of Her Majesty’s post boxes on a road corner in southern England.

Memory Sunday #8

Gardener’s Ease

In England four summers ago we visited, with friends, a small garden that was open one evening to raise money for a good cause – this is quite a thing in England. In an otherwise empty “garden room” we chanced upon this delightful seat for the weary gardener. “A large gin and tonic if you please”.

Memory Sunday No. 1

England 2019 – Making friends

Henceforth, as a general editorial rule, the Sunday image will be something I particularly like from times past. Memory Sunday.

These lovely cows lived in a Berkshire field and wandered over to chew the cud with me one sunny afternoon on May 2019 when we last visited England.

Euro-Robin


From the Archives – 2018

A Bird with Attitude

Starting to think it’s time for spring to arrive (6 weeks at least, but you can hope) and serendipitously happened upon this European Robin that was digitally collected two years ago in England … I like his facial expression. Very positive, as one needs to be at this time of a Quebec year.
