The old shearing shed. It was 100 years old last year and the wood from it was taken entirely off the property. There's a few too many white ants in it for it's own good but, man, this building has character. We have a new shed (eight years old) which is almost pristine and very very boring.

Oooh the lovely colours in that, Jill. A gorgeous edifice.I do not know where else you would see that but Australia. It is one of the things that struck me, the earthy colours. Wonderful.

This is a tree that fell behind the house I live in. The tree has only had a few branches bud out the last four or five years, but it's completely unsalvageable. I took this picture with my cell phone camera about 7:45pm CDT this evening. About 2 hours later, the city crews came out to cut it up to get it out of the alleyway.

You can look at the full size picture here.

I can say with certainty that no one was injured in the storms this evening.

Somehow I don't think my neighbour intended this wee bird feeder for these big guys! The one on the right is giving me a wary look.

There was a great sunset, but I missed it really. This is the remains of it from the other side of chez Ren.

Colourful flower beds in a normally quite shady part of the grounds of Hertford Castle.

When I was getting my icecream yesterday I couldn't help taking photos of the pink thrift, it is always spectacular at this time of year.

A captured Russian gun from the Crimean War, exhibited at Lewes Castle. There's a memorial in a nearby church to Russian prisoners of war who died in Lewes.

This is my Policeman Teddy Bear I bought while touring England 8 years ago. I bought him at Harrod's and he guards our bedroom. He does a good job as we have never had a break in or any other type of crime on our property.

I took a number of photos today, including one of my newly mown front lawn (patting self on back), but I particularly liked this one of 14-year-old Winston bouncing around in the back yard like a puppy! (The back yard is on tomorrow's 'to do' list )

Jillian, what happens when you get torrential rain? Are you stranded?

Yep. Normal sort of rain can be for up to a week. Heavier sort of rain will mean you have to go through water in the creeks for weeks afterwards but can still get through. We always have a weeks supply of food and essentials should it rain.

I had to go into town today for a dental check. My plan was to take a photo of the bronze cows and also some in the markets, which I did but they will have to be for another day. As I was walking to the dentist my eye was caught by this shop window, whilst I watched he settled himself down for a sleep. I ended up humming the old song "How much is the doggy in the window".

Mrs. Argus loves to do Ceramics. Here is some of her work.

I'm not much of a gardener. I like to let it grow wild, apart from keeping the lawn cut and free from dandelions. There are some flowers inherited from the last owners. Here is one. Although uncared for, this rhododendron looks great year after year:

It's eighteen years since I finally managed to give up smoking, but I still think an old-fashioned tobacconist's shop is a delight to see, even if I don't go inside. This one is at the Royal Exchange in London.



And wow, Argus! Your wife's ceramic figures are fantastic.

I'll second that, very impressive figures. And my Lucy still bounces around like Winston, although not as often as she used to.
Continuing my obsessive affair with Temple Fortune, I spotted this on the side of the flats there today, and the garden centre just to the left of it is on the site of the original Temple Fortune farm that gave the area its name. Having worked almost opposite for longer than I worked anywhere else I became part of the furniture there as well, though I've been going there all my life.
