Someone's been missing all the action till today...

I think in honour of Private Eye magazine and one of my local stations my first entry should be of Neasden underground station, a landmark of suburban London.



To those confused, many of our underground lines go overground some miles from the centre, and this one does even closer.

Here in the vibrant metropolis of Hastings, we've always referred to the neighbouring town of Bexhill as "the cemetery with street-lights." But besides its lighting it also has this art-déco arts centre (the De La Warr Pavilion), recently refurbished. Now that "Photo-a -day" is encouraging me to get out and about, I may even go to the touring opera there next month.

I headed out this afternoon to take my newspapers to be recycled and then I was going to try to find something to photograph. As I parked I heard them announce on the radio that they were giving away scratch cards at a nearby supermarket and would only be there for another half an hour. I had been listening for a week or two when they have been giving away these cards in various locations around the island but they never seem to be near me. There are five possible prizes for the lucky winners, only two of them were of interest to me and they were a bottle of champagne and the other was a day trip to France or Guernsey.

I quickly took the following photo then shot off to claim my free scratch card. Yes I won a prize, look out for my photo from St Malo soon!

That may bring back memories - I went on a holiday course in St Malo in the summer of 1963.

I was out and about on Monday, but without my camera, so here's another from Sunday's walk. Susanna Moodie is a well-known Canadian pioneer and author, and one of her homes is nearby.

Like many old seaside pleasure piers, the one at Hastings has seen better days. It’s been closed for some time because the supports are unsafe, and the latest rumours suggest that it’s going to be demolished.

OK, I've done 'Sunset over the rooftops'. Now here's 'Sunrise over the garden shed'. You can tell I haven't been anywhere today

It's another lovely almost-spring day, and I did go for a walk - but saw nothing photo-worthy. Instead I have opted for this one of a squirrel running along the fence top, earlier this afternoon. Hope he shows up!

I have been on that pier Tom!

Apart from having my hair cut I haven't really been out today but hopefully will make up for it tomorrow, weather permitting. Today was a lovely day, I just wasn't in the right mood as it is the anniversary of my mother's death.

These are from my garden and are actually more vibrant - lovely.

Sunrise. There are some advantages in having to take the puppy out early.

Congrats Sue I hope you enjoy your outing and looking forward to the photos. I feel like I am seeing the world with all these lovely photographs and you all make me feel guilty as I have not posted any for a few days.

Today I was determined to photograph some of our glorious daffodil fields. When they are in full bloom this is not good news for growers as it means they have not sold the bulk of the crop. They aim for the Mothers' Day market which is this coming Sunday but alas it has been a mild winter and many of them have not only bloomed but are fading.

Good heavens, Liz...is that a squirrel or a tiny panther running along your fence?

We've had some lovely nature shots lately.

The house on the right is said to be the oldest in Hastings.

I have mostly black squirrels in my back yard, only a few grey ones. I have just been watching one (perhaps the same one from the fence) sitting in a tree nibbling on a nut.

Today it was raining, so here's another pic from yesterday. This bit of greenery is where the daffodils were last year, so I think that's what we're looking at (a bit behind the ones in Sue's neck of the woods ).



Since yesterday, most of the snow is gone, but there's talk of more over the weekend.

[edited to add today's photo]

The house in the middle with the “for sale” board outside may be just an ordinary Victorian terraced house; but whoever buys it will have a house that was once occupied by one of the most instantly recognizable women who ever lived. As I learned only this week, Whistler’s mother lived there for the last six years of her life and died there in 1881. Whistler’s works include a watercolour (”On the Beach, Hastings”), presumably painted when he was visiting his mother.

I took this one yesterday but wanted to post it. There are three cart horses in the field around the corner from here. Certainly there is mother and foal (I think this might be the foal), and perhaps the dad too. When it was small it was so cute.



Edited to say I have found out it is mother and son (that is the son) and an unrelated mare.

Maybe Aramis would like to chase off a couple of magpies
