Sometimes it is just not appropriate or convenient
to carry a camera,
so lately not caught:
a lunch with old friends at the National Gallery
and a very targeted approach to the art -
The delivery of fencing
and five pleached Chanticleer pear trees
to replace the hedge and trees cut down by new neighbours.
A trip to Covent Garden to see
A glorious country wedding in full sunshine
despite the dire weather forecast.
A huge grass snake coiled beside us
while we ate lunch in the garden.
Eek. I've never seen a snake in the wild.
It slithered away as silently as it arrived.
A badger (also huge) galloping down the path
and leaping over a wall in front of me.
Another first. I only see dead ones on the roadside.
Coming soon, but this time with a camera in hand,
a short trip to Stockholm
inspired in part by this,
