Only a pawn in the garden

Today’s picture, sent to me by my sister Susan, is of my new great nephew Jamie. Obviously the finest looking baby in the world.

Black and blue

Today’s picture was sent to me by Gavin who saw this adder on Warbla. Another unseasonably fine but very welcome day greeted us this morning and Dropscone and I enjoyed a pleasant run round the morning route.

Dropscone had gone to a funeral andContinue reading “Working seriously at last”
