I passed the dairy in Stroud Green every day on the way to college. It's a pub now but they've kept the artwork outside, five are shown and two more are the other side of the door. There were many more inside on the walls but couldn't see whether they were still there.



From Wikipedia:
The exterior wall that faces onto Crouch Hill, comprises a remarkable set of seven, unique, anonymous sgraffitto panels (c.1890), with picturesque illustrations of: Milk Delivery (ancient); Milk Delivery (modern); In the Country; Milk Cooling; Making Butter; Milling; Grazing

Love that building, satguru! Great sky Copago, and beautiful flower PDAZ. All of the others are super too.

The weather was a bit warmer today, and the squirrels were in a playful mood.

Lovely lovely pics everyone, as usual!
I was at a lunch buffet today and was wandering around photographing various dishes(as you do) and saw this machine thingie. I think it might be a good subject for "What is it". Does anyone know?

Ren,

They are food warming lamps. Sometimes fitted with a sneezeguard, an appealing option.

Wow! That was a quick response indeed. Thanks. Isn't it wonderful what you learn at FT?
SNEEZEguard??? (ewwwww!)

I have always been very dubious about all the nuts and raisins etc in farm shops in open trays for the same reason, as they have no sneeze or anything else guard.

This is the path that goes down the hill to Frognal in Hampstead complete with view.

Neat photo, Copago.
I love that Bird-of-Paradise, Tredici, it's gorgeous!
Love the clouds, the squirrel (we only have the red-brown ones here), the much discussed lamps with possible *nose content blocker* , and have to say that dairy and path are both awesome pics, David! That path would be impossible not to walk if I saw it.

Continuing the cold theme, these Canada geese seem quite happy grazing on our local canal towpath.
The white stuff you can see is frost, not snow.

All the animal photos are just great; I especially like closeup of Tigger and the meerkats keeping warm. Coming on here and seeing all the different photos is the best part of my day.

I swear, the sky's on fire! Photo taken in North Carolina a few nights ago.

SM, it was taken at the Petro in Mebane on I-40 on Jan. 17. I practically fell out of the truck in my hurry to get off a few shots before it changed.

Well, son of a biscuit. I live about 20 minutes from there! I've been there a few times myself.

"Well, next time I'm there, I'm calling you! "
Next time I"m at the Petro in Mebane on I-40 - I'm calling you too, SM!

Love the sky photos - all of them are fabulous.

For want of something better to post here is another goat family photo. They are still hanging around down the back. I'm a bit concerned for the other two because Hindu is getting fed and they are not - they won't come close enough to be fed. We thought the reason she came home may be becuase it is getting dry and not much feed about so what I'm doing now is stripping some branches morning and night and leaving them on the ground then walking away so the new ones can eat them while I feed Hindu. Obviously this photo was taken before I got her food ready.

We have a half grown pup that is used to snapping at things, like chickens, and having them run away. Had to laugh when he tried doing it to Hindu. She doesn't take crap from anything let alone a smart**** pup!

Thank you lioness. I feel rather blessed to live in a state where it's pretty much point and shoot. Don't have to go far in any direction to find a scenic photo op. I suspect that is true of many places, but after spending about 15 years away I'm enjoying being home and finding all it has to offer.

You know I never really had a huge desire to visit America(don't get me wrong , some of my mum's best "friends" were GI's in the war and some of my best friends are Americans) However,since seeing the beautiful photos posted here showing such glorious places and such a variety, I am very tempted now.

Built just 100 years ago as a flour mill, the Millenium Mills overlooking the Royal Victoria Dock, are of the few derilict buildings in London's modern Docklands district.
