I have really been enjoying the photos this month. I love the painted bollards. What a great idea!

Ren, my guess was the same as Ozzz’s - would never have guessed it was to do with bees.

Loved the land shark (it brought back memories of watching “Saturday Night Live” back in the early 1980s when I lived in California).

Am loving all the horse pictures too.




At the end of last month, I posted some pictures I took at the Underwater Observatory in Busselton which is situated at the end of the jetty. This is a photograph of the beginning of the jetty where the visitor information centre, museum and ticket booth are located.

Fabulous turtle pic!

This is the Visitor's Center in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona. The chimneys caught my attention -- I'd not seen bricks used like that before.

Would chimneys be a good theme ?

Lovely bird pics, RMG.

An office building I came across after taking a wrong turn this morning.

My scooter, or, as I like to call it - the moo-ped.

Very stylish! I lined one of my car interiors with yellow fur once and the fashion seems to have stopped soon after that. I think I get half a mark for pigeons, as animals with wings was relatively close, maybe?

Here's a rather nice country road in Headley more or less in the middle of nowhere, Surrey.

Like the furry scooter and the cattle on the road brought back memories of the fifties and sixties when such sights were fairly common here.

Even though it rained today (and thundered), Precious wanted to go outside and chase her stick. This involves me turning in circles and dragging the stick for her to chase. Needless to say, I get dizzy and am happy to take a break when she catches it, as she has here. She also has her eye on a robin across the road...

Continuing my current fixation on novelty pedestrian bollards;
This one guards the pedestrian underpass to the Newport rail station, and commemorates the heavy industry that one thrived locally at Newport's Railway Workshops.

Are you sure it doesn't commemorate the feeling of the workers after the industry left? :-)

There are several large owls at the sanctuary.

A beautiful day in London yesterday, this photo was taken in the garden opposite Buckingham Palace.

Amazing flowers Trev, they've actually eclipsed the displays I take every year in Hampstead Garden Suburb, and that takes some doing.

Szabs: Golfmom is right... they DO seem to have their eyes on you LOL
Gees: LOVELY capture of the dew/raindrops on the flower
Liz: Loved the "getting dizzy" anecdote. And yes you picked a good name for her : )
QB: LOL, moo-ped indeed! That's great!

I COULD post more snow pix, but Satguru's "dream of green" has me thinking of warmer climes than mine, so this is sunrise (one month ago) on a beach near Cabos:

Oh Wow! we are surpassing ourselves as usual.
Apologies for yet another Mango Tree photo, but I am so thrilled at the amount of blossom and am thinking about a mango chutney factory.

A slight change from the birds. This is a clump of trees on a tiny peninsular jutting out into Rutland Water.



It is one of the largest artificial lakes in Europe and covers over 3000 acres. There is a walking/cycling track around it that is 25 miles long.
