Am admiring the (church?) tower at the end of the boulevard. dentist - ouch! the hydrangeas are perfect in the wedgewood. beautiful.

'Poosie Nansies' Inn, built 1700 - where Robbie Burns wrote 'The Jolly Beggars' while he was farmer there (Mauchline, Ayrshire).

It is also said that it was here, at this ale house, that he penned Auld Lange Syne (old-long-since?). Apparently the kitchen remains the same today as it stood back in the early 18th century.

Liz it looks like the birds were expecting dinner with the show.

Professer those cobble stone streets are just so quaint. Nothing like that here in Africa!

Och aye dunnoooo Shelley! That must be one of the only hills in Lincolnshire,Gary... Lincoln is an unsung pretty town. Hydrangeas are lovely and the redwood brings back fond memories of my visits to Northern CA. Here is another view from the iron bridge at Ironbridge - looking down on the Severn Gorge.

Think this is a church door in Madrid, but for the life of me cannot remember if it was the palace church or not ?

Anyone know ?

Thanks Sherry and Picqero. Elaine, that is a great photo of the redwood. I'd love to see one of those someday.

Hmmm, some more horns here. This little lady was spotted in the fields on the way to the wolf sanctuary the other day.

Lincoln is one of my favourite cities - especially just before Christmas when there is so much happening with the festivities. I have been staying with my son in Solihull this week and we visited Stratford-upon-Avon (never been before). We had our lunch in the town's oldest pub and were very lucky to find very few tourists. Here is the obligatory shot of Anne Hathaway's cottage. My grandmother made a beautiful embroidered picture of this in the 1920's - will see if I can obtain an image.

So many good photos - there's something special about each one. Especially like the double horns in a row, with picqero's and Lisa's!

Here's a California banana slug, a resident of the CA coast, and of course the redwood forests. Isn't he deliciously slimy?

Since our original "Percy" the pine tree died, we have bought not one, but two replacements. Below is one of the replacement "Percys". He is looking rather lovely.

Lovely horned animals, including the slug! Glad to see that replacement Percy is doing well

These pretty flowers are growing alongside the river walk that I was strolling along today.

Awesome scenery Professor.

The city i live in (pop. 80,000) hugs the eastern coast of the island (as do most of the towns), so one is never very far away from the ocean. Five to ten minutes in the city.

This is a spot where i liked to walk my pooch ... it is off Sebastion Road. We are having an absolutely gorgeous summer. Those aren't clouds in the background they are the Coast Mountains on the mainland.

Liz, the colors in your photo of the lilies are incredible!

This is Enders Beach, still a part of Redwood National Park. You can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The girls are wading in a freshwater pool that's supplied from a small creek behind me.

Have no idea what these are. The bunch of orchid-like looking flowers are about the size of a thumbnail - they appear have leaves like long thick blades of grass ... and were growing in an alley with grass that looked the same ... what a description.
