The Blue Angels are back in town for a show on Saturday. They have been practicing all morning. Their flight path means that my house gets buzzed. Here is the culprit (everything shakes when he goes over). This was taken from my driveway.

Here's a typical row of cottages in the real Hampstead Garden Suburb, although the ones in Ealing and Guildford are identical types as well.

This very inquistive duck came right up close when I was picking something up, so I grabbed my camera instead!

lilyalli, it looks like the little duck is gilded!! What a pretty picture.

All the cottages and roads are very pretty, satguru. I've always wanted to go to Britain and it's nice to see it vicariously.

This afternoon we went to the Eric Young Orchid Foundation and the flowers are just amazing.

A lot of lovely pictures lately! And that orchid, for me? How kind

Naturally, being British, I couldn't let that solitary Blue Angel go without a picture of the Red Arrows - seen on their way up the Mall and about to fly over Buckingham Palace.

Love the Red Arrows and the Blue Angel! Where are the Snowbirds when I need them? Beautiful orchid.

The lilacs by my front door are almost out...

The 1066 pub sign, in Battle high street, depicts a scene from the Norman invasion.
The walls of Battle Abbey can be seen in the background.

Thanks ysmay, and here's another British tradition of gardening in a park I went to for the first time today in Edgware.

Today's project involved weeds, lovely moist earth, various garden tools and quite a bit of energy

Today's project involved a delicious lunch at a restaurant on Lantau Island,looking out at this view, and then a doze on the sand and a paddle . This is how we often celebrate birthdays here. (In case anyone thought that Hong Kong is just a concrete jungle.)

It's the same for London, like all cities they have to end somewhere, and this is where it stops in Edgware. It's still within the London boundaries though.

The simplest British scene can look more interesting with the inclusion of the traditional red postbox.
This is in nearby Cuffley.

The Blue Angels are awesome. I've seen them several times. The Red Arrows aren't too bad, either and neither are the Snowbirds.



One of the lilac bushes from our yard. We have several. We have to enjoy these while they can. The flowers do not stay on very long.

The beach again. It was a gorgeous day and lots of swimmers and surfers were out. On Sundays it's impossible for crowds though.

We call this red yucca, but it's actually hesperaloe. Very popular with hummingbirds! It's right in front of my yellow oleander tree (which is actually a different plant than regular oleander... we just call things whatever we feel like )

This is a white lilac. We pretty much call things what we are supposed to.



You must have quite the yard, PDAZ. You have such a variety of nice flowers and bushes.

I used to go see the Thunderbirds fly when they'd come to Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. I always have loved the air shows.

All the photos of lilacs make me jealous. Lilacs are my favorite scented flower and remind me of my mother because she used to have such wonderful bushes when we were living in NM.

This is NM sky in the morning a couple of days ago.

I'm jealous of the lilacs too. I don't know if they can grow here, but I don't see them in the nurseries so that's probably not a good sign.

These are Saguaro cactus blossoms -- the Arizona state flower. All of those little black spots are bees -- many, many bees -- I didn't stick around too long...
