Another day, another hundred

Today’s picture is two pictures, contributed by my sister Mary, from the South Bank in London where, stealing an idea from Paris, they have created a beach… …and added some beach huts too. The day was forecast to be foggy and still and, once again, the forecast was right. It was sunny in our gardenContinue reading “Another day, another hundred”

As a result I spent some time after breakfastContinue reading “Rained off”
