I took this photo on my recent trip into the city. I love the architecture of this colonial building - it is the Weld Club. The Weld Club was formed in 1871 and named after the then Governor of Western Australia, Sir Frederick Weld, and the club building was constructed in 1892. It hit the headlines earlier this year because it is a gentlemen's only club. Women are allowed in as visitors if they are with a member, but they cannot be members. However, the club may have to admit female members if a proposed overhaul of WA's antidiscrimination laws is enforced. One of their prominent members was quoted in the newspaper as saying that the club "did not discriminate against anyone but it had the right to decide who it allowed in and who it did not".

This is a Halloween decoration in a yard in town.

Loved the ladybird, TW. The raccoons are cute too, ClaraSue, though I'm glad I don't have to share a house and garden with them.

If the bells of this steeple were audible where you were born, you're a true Cockney. It's St Mary-le-Bow in Cheapside, London.

Cute racoons!



Took this pic of a Barbet on the fence in the back yard. He lives in a tree stump just to the left of where he is sitting. I love the sound they make.

This is the centre of Golders Green by the main crossroads.



When I used to go to Barnet it was one of the places with a 'no photography' sign, but I think now mobile phones have cameras they found it impossible to enforce. I got plenty at Brentford to make up for it though (none digital mind you).

Our trip to Wisley Gardens was a while ago now. There was so much to photograph there that I probably went for overkill in the number of photos taken. Perhaps displaying one every now an then won't hurt. Here's one of a flower bed.

I saw this car being moved into a transport trailer one evening. It is a Studebaker, 1932 Dictator, Model 62 Rumble Seat Coupe. The sign in the window stated that a total of 6,021 of all model 62 body styles were produced in 1932. Only four examples of the rumble seat coupe exist today.

Great car, CS - my grandpa used to work at the Studebaker factory in Lakeville, Indiana, so I'm partial to them!

Here's a little ornament that I made that I'm so proud of. Thanks for letting me share.

One of the better 'weeds' in my garden. I've no idea what they are, but assume they're some sort of herb? They have a sort of spearmint scent, and the leaves are yellow-green. the flowers as you see are like daisies. I usually transplant them into pots or containers or borders as even the foliage is quite pleasing to the eye.
Anyone know what they are

Just team rules djsgal, some clubs have a sign up and others don't. Maybe some people were using flash (not much point outdoors at any distance but people do) and it was distracting the players. I think they've had to give in now for the reasons I expect, and it never did any harm. One ground bans bottles with tops so people don't throw them. They sell drinks and take the tops off and keep them. Yes, this is a strange country...

Piqero, I think that is a type of Feverfew. You eat the leaves to alleviate migraines, I do not know much else.

Hong Kong Park has a great conservation area, there is a damp and a dry section. This, as you see, is a Bromeliad.

I call my Mum every night before bed, and every evening she speaks to Winston and Katt, and says "Good night" to them over the phone. Winston is never any problem to find, but tonight Katt had disappeared. I was roaming all over checking all of his usual hidey-holes and couldn't find him. Even checked outside in case he'd slipped out when Win and I came in from his late run in the back yard. Finally, I thought to look in the laundry room, and there he was, curled up on a couple of (clean) sweaters! Little tinker!

Isn't it funny how kitties can just blend in with the furniture whenever they want to? And you just know they're sitting there contentedly watching you hunt frantically for them. Like they're saying "I'm right here, you silly human, open your eyes..."

Yep, that's them and and thanks for the identification. I was certain from the fairly strong though pleasant lemon/spearmint scent of the leaves that they were a type of herb. They seed themselves in my garden and I then transplant them into pots and borders. Maybe I'll look into adding them to salads or stews now that I know what they are
This is a typical southern English village scene, a nice old house by a quiet stream - and not in a flood prone area either!

Taesma, I just know he was doing exactly what you describe! He didn't even move when I rattled the door to the food cupboard...

Lady1, I think sleeping on clean clothes is part of the Cat's Code of Conduct, isn't it?

This is Britain's first shopping mall, opened in 1976 and little changed besides numerous additional areas. Brent Cross:



Plus a row of red buses in front. I wonder if any of you have been here as well?

When Winston and I were out for a walk just now, we met my neighbour's new kitten, Tigger. Tigger was more interested in finding out how the plants taste than in making friends!

Odd isn't it? I recently noticed that the area outside our local shopping mall which runs alongside the canal in the city is also a non-dog, non-photography area too.

I had never heard of such a thing before.

Do you think the world is going a little mad? I can't see any good reason for it.

I think I was there when they opened the doors! Fenwicks was a favourite.

I was a student nurse at Edgware General at the time so not much money, but lots of window shopping.

We went for a walk in the bush and I pointed my camera straight up and took this picture. You can see where NZ get their silver ferns from. Most NZ international sports terms will have a silver fern on their uniform.
