Red Arrows eat your heart out!

Today is the Battle of Flowers in Jersey and to enter into the spirit of the event we have decorated some of the mobility scooters and they will have joined the parade this afternoon and then again tomorrow evening for the Moonlight Parade. As I was passing a bit of kidney stone I came home instead of going to sell programmes. I might get to ride one of them tomorrow. I did make quite a lot of the flowers.

Those are just great, wonderful job on them, Sue! I am sorry to hear about the kidney stone though - ouch! You never know, it could work to your advantage and gain you sympathy and some more liplocks with handsome young men, eh?

Not my house, Ren. I'll take a pic of mine and post it soon. This whole neighborhood is full of houses built in the early 1800s.

Agree, it really was a handsome house.

bhs, that view is straight out of a film, and just how I expect the deep south to be.

More history today, here is a quite different Tottenham Hale station from the one I used to pass on the way to my grandma many years ago. But it did have somewhere for me to stop and looks quite a bit better than before, although I barely remember it. It's funny how many railway related pictures we've had recently.

Nice to see Tottenham Hale station from the outside - hateful place during the rush hour change over to the Victoria line.

Oh, I don't find it too bad; I change there a couple of times each month when I travel into London. Straight down the escalator, from the main station, and you're right on the Victoria line. Even easier coming back, and The Vic' line is one of the fastest lines of all

My sister and I went to the Philadelphia Zoo last week for a day trip (while on vacation).

The photo of the mama and baby elephant is right after your ticket is scanned and you pass through.

That is usually the first photo everyone takes.

You must have more fortitude than I picqero - its the mad dash from the Audley End train down that escalator and the crush to get on the tube no holds barred,which drove me mad - glad not to have that journey to do any longer.

Duck & fish; I don't think the pochard duck was really worried by the koi carp - though it does look that way

I certainly do. One problem - my plants and flowers never look like this.

The quality of the photos just gets better and better! Incredible sunset and chandelier, and love the red boat and the koi, and the flowers at the market, and the Scottish landscape...all of them!

Here are some young grapes that I saw yesterday - I'll probably try to take another photo when they mature.

So good to see places I've taken people actually know! I remember when Kentish Town hooked up to the Southend line which was where I changed once, then it moved to Gospel Oak. Otherwise it was usually Kings Cross for me. While my other grandma was alive in Ilford we drove that way nearly every week so know the route like an old friend although the road from Snaresbrook to Redbridge has now been bypassed.

This is a view over Hadley Wood

In the park at Laycock Abbey. The weeping willow might be my favourite tree.
