I was very impressed by the attention to detail in this statue in Washington DC.

Precious decided that the best way to help put a new vacuum cleaner together would be to get inside the box to read the instructions!

Here are the last few defiant leaves refusing to drop off the tree in my back yard. It's July. At this rate they'll be on there when the new growth comes in next month.

Another July-flowering camellia. This cultivar is called "Star Above Star".

Thank you both. I bought the shoes a couple years ago for my sister's wedding. I don't wear them because they just aren't my type of shoes; I'm more of a tennis shoe person.

I spent today walking around town visiting some lovely gardens as today was the annual Garden Tour put on by the local branch of CFUW (Canadian Federation of University Women). I took my new camera with me so I could take pictures smile

Very good use of a new camera too. smile

This was taken on the beach at Brighton; hauling a boat ashore up and across the pebbles can't be easy.

During my weekend in Torquay, I spotted these and thought that they went well with
my earlier post.


(I had a quick look to see if they were marked as 'Ladies' and 'Gents'. They weren't.)

I thought this was a fine fellow at Durrell this afternoon. It is not mono, it is how it was.

It looks like one of my team mates on a good day. I would tell you which team mate but I think PDAZ will be along later so I'd better not. wink

I saw this sign at the model village at Babbacombe. We all like a bit of toilet humoUr
now and again, don't we?

It's winter but Ollie is quite comfortable on an old pillow with a faux fur rug. Nope, not spoilt at all. wink

It looks even sadder from that angle. You're right about it making for a great photo though, I'm very impressed.

From the older part of Newcastle a variety of exterior decor for the shop-fronts and the buildings generally

I took this photo in April (my apologies to July wink ) and have been trying to discover the name of the flower ever since. They had quite a lot of them at the Royal Wedding but naturally none of the commentators mentioned its name. They identified the trees, the celebrities, the visiting royals and every single needlework stitch used on the dress but the flowers? Nope. Any gardeners out there?

Flopsymopsy, your picture is Solomon's Seal, one of several species of Polygonatum.
And a very dainty old-world flower it is too.
