flopsymopsy, that was just one of many rapid messages that suggested the sky was falling but if I sent money all would be well.
So I just switched off and went to my knitting, after booking "Mr Computer Man" to make a house call. He's well trained - brings me a bucket of plums or some empty jars and goes home with a bonus of jam and pickles in addition to his fee.

Beautiful spring flowers Ren. We seem to have had a shortage of impatiens seedlings over the past few years. I think I heard that there was some sort of disease affecting the growers' ability to supply.

My family visited on the weekend, and were fed corned beef with cabbage, carrots, mash and mustard gravy - always a favourite.
I found myself singing to my grandson, "Boiled Beef and Carrots", much to his amusement.
I had heard it from my mother, whose father was a devotee of the Music Halls of London. So it now passes to another generation.



The leftovers were mixed together and re-cycled as Bubble'n'Squeak. Yummy.

Who wanted bad weather? Luckily this is very rare for Caroline Bay in Timaru, New Zealand.....lol. This was a couple of winters ago I think.

More impressively early stuff in the garden pots. Surprising as we had a long cold winter, for us.

Seagulls drinking salt water from a puddle on the steps at Cottesloe Beach.

The seagull's ability to survive drinking salt water is due to a pair of glands in the head, just above the eyes, which act as a miniature desalination plant. The excess salt is expelled from the glands via the nostrils. This expelled salt water is many times more salty than tears, about five times as salty as the gull's own blood and twice as salty as sea water.

An unusual waterlily, bearing three distinct, albeit distorted, flower heads on one stalk. In addition there's another tiny bud with a short wiry stem growing from the mass.
I hope the next one will be normal!

I'm quite pleased with tonight's Moon photo. Some cropping away of the surrounding night sky but otherwise just as it came off the camera. Camera on a tripod. 18x zoom.

Loving all your rural pictures, Sat smile. They take me back to Jane Austen's novels and The Lord of the Rings, combined!

And wow, those moon pictures are beautiful! Tellywellies, that picture is simply amazing.
