Some of my favourite American style shops in Sunningdale. Everyone there would take them for granted but we don't have many in Britain.

This gorgeous little foal, called Horace, was dumped by the side of the road from the back of a van and left to die .His umbilical cord was still attached. Fortunately he was found in time and is now in a place of safety and is fit, healthy, and quite naughty

Aww, I want Horace! Although what I'd do with a horse...

ANyway, into every life a little rain must fall - or in my case, a load of hail! Where'd that come from in May?

I want Horace as well, but Pete says I can't! meanie.

We had the hail as well, and thunder and lightning. Hope we get more summery weather soon.

Poor Horace. Lucky Horace.
Poor Horace's mama. Mares mourn the loss of their colts. How does the thought form in a person's brain to put a newborn colt in a van and dump it on the side of the road? I hope they lose everything they have.

We believe it was Travellers who dumped him. There is a big problem round here with abandoned traveller horses, and they would not want a foal with that colouring because he is albino. Several people looked hard for his mother in case she had been dumped somewhere as well, but we couldn't find her.

I could have sworn I'd posted another photo, never mind, I always catch up.

Since the creation of the M25 around London you can now almost guarantee it will take longer using it during the day than using the original routes. Sad but true.

The entrance in Chorleywood

The changing of the guards at Prague Castle. I had to hold my camera above my head to get photos over top of people so I was never sure what I was photographing. Hopefully no one recognises the backs of these heads. smile

Who remembers my hula hoops? Well, here they are again - nicely protecting (so far) my tomatoes, runner beans, and lettuce.

A typical example of our original road signs, replaced in 1964 but many survive from then.

I hope my neighbours don't want their wisteria back but I'm pretty sure that it's flowering more on my side of the fence than theirs! wink

A few days ago the first winter storm came through with plenty of snow in some places. Timaru, however, only got the wind. Today, the Pacific Ocean was still quite wild and seemed to enjoy crashing into the Dashing Rocks area.

So last year a new flower bed "arrived" in my front garden, I planted a few shrubs and edging plants, then seeded it - and got a lot of photos to bore regale you with across the summer.

This year I hoed it and voila! This is what happens when you let plants self-seed:



Plus three of my lupins survived!

I'm a great believer in letting things self seed, sometimes you get some interesting variations as well, and after all, plants for free is never a bad thing.

A sacred kingfisher taking it easy at the Smithfield rock pools while the Pacific Ocean rages....not that we can see any rock pools nor the wild ocean behind the kingfisher.

Talking of self seeders and variety - my big red poppies must have cross pollinated with something else, possibly an opium poppy, and this year this self seeded one has popped up.

Opium poppy? In Essex? You'll be getting a visit from someone in blue. wink

And Howie, how big is that kingfisher? Ours are tiny compared to most so what size are they in NZ?

Meanwhile a better view of my lupins, of which I am still inordinately proud. smile

The kingfishers are not very big, maybe around 20 to 25cm

Flopsy, you should be proud of your lupins. I don't have any at the moment, slugs got the lot of them I shall get some seeds and try to repopulate.

As for opium poppies, you should see the cannabis my neighbour has growing in her lawn - she swears blind she doesn't know where it came from
