This outdoor stage was being put up today, ready for concerts to be held this weekend. Only problem was the torrential rain today, which is predicted to last all weekend...

A far more interesting block of council flats in Hampstead than the usual ones.

Picqero, that scene is so tranquil!

Here's a squirrel who was checking me out this morning

I thought for sure it was a ground squirrel when I saw him, but now that I look at the pic, it might just be a baby rock squirrel.

Great photos, everyone. Sorry I haven't been able to pop in much but it's been great catching up with your pics.

In case anyone was wondering, it was a ground squirrel in my photo from the other day. I saw the little fellow again today and got a good look at him.

By the way, Flopsy, I freed the lobsters...

Train tracks near Nyngan.

Sadly, lobsters are rarely free... come to think of it, they're really quite expensive!

Oh, you didn't mean that?

There are many different squirrels, Copago. The red squirrel is indigenous to Britain but has sadly been pushed out of its habitat by grey squirrels imported from North America - reds are now very rare here. When I went to Canada the first time I was entranced by the sight of black squirrels, I'd never seen any before.

Even though grey squirrels are classed as vermin here they're still fun to watch. If you're ever in St James's Park in London, make sure you have some peanuts to offer in the palm of your hand - chances are a squirrel will come down for a free meal.

When I came home from work on Thursday, I found these on my kitchen table - a gift from my daughter for no paticular reason/occasion. I wonder what I'm being softened up for?

Maybe ... just for nothing whatsoever, MG? You can but hope ...

Great pics, everyone. I pop in most days to look, just wish I had more time to participate and comment individually. In any case it's a bright spot in my daily routine.

Here's a photo I took thinking of the 'up' theme that was going a couple of weeks back, but didn't get around to posting:

The flowers are exquisite, Mother Goose -- what a lovely color combination!

mc_shellsie, I should have noticed that stripe -- I would have known it was a ground squirrel right away. They are the desert equivalent of chipmunks!

Here's a shot of Different Pointe of View, a mountain-top restaurant at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs resort in Phoenix. There's a jazz club besides the restaurant with an outdoor patio that overlooks Phoenix -- a stunning view a night.

haha, that is cute. I think we've talked about this before - but is there any difference between chipmunks and squirrels?

Cool mosque pic, Zorba.
