Whether you call it a boab, a baobab, or a bottle tree, this one is growing as a specimen in Williamstown Botanical Gardens.

Liz. Does the one on the other side of the street work? You could always cross over & use that one.

Then I'd have to cross three times to get to where I want to go, though smile (The other side of the street also has a steep curb, stepping down from which I've turned my ankle more than once, so I try to avoid it.)

Martin, that is the sort of logic that made Britain great wink

One reason I don't usually go to Stevenage or many similar places is however many pictures I take they all look something like this:



I must have taken 30 pictures there yesterday and over half looked exactly like this. It is a new town from the 60s and is just a maze of roundabouts and office blocks along the roads. It looks identical from one end to the other, and I can now prove it if anyone looks on my album sites.

This bird is named Winston, and he lives at a local garden centre that my sister and I visited today. He's very friendly, and poses when he sees a camera.

Talking of animals who pose, here is a cat who lives in the village of Lacock , where a lot of tourists go, as it is the site used for filming many of the wonderful BBC Drama series, such as Cranford,
He saw me approach (assuming he is male of course!) and immediately jumped up on a wall and did just that. I could almost hear "Is this my best side?" Unbelievable, and a beautiful cat (as he well knew)

Sorry I haven't posted much recently but I got struck down by the dreaded lurgy, resulting
in a week-long spell in hospital. They're still going through my blood samples with a battery
of tests in an effort to find out what it was. I'm hoping I didn't contract it during the recent
trip to the USA. I don't want to have doubts about going back should the chance ever arise.

Oh Martin, that's terrible (your illness, not the photo) I hope all goes well and it was nothing dire.

I'd never want to live in a block like this but always like photos of them. This is as you arrive in Stevenage

Martin hope you are on the mend.

August means fields and fields of endless sunflowers

Wish you a speedy recovery, Martin.

The field of sunflowers is gorgeous, Andrea.

Near the harbour at Hoonah, Alaska

Came across this little fellow basking in the sun today. How relaxed can you get?

Thanks for your good wishes. I think it's pretty much out of my system now though it's left me
feeling like the bunny that didn't get the Duracell battery. smile

This is one of the scenarios at the Babbacombe model village. I instantly thought of the FarmVille
game on FaceBook for some reason.

Love that photo MotherGoose!

Here's Precious relaxing, and enjoying being called "Good Girl!" after having made me a present of the mouse she caught, after about a day's stalking.

Some hungry otters at the New Forest Wildlife Centre who could hear the man with the bucket of fish coming.

Thanks Shannon
Mothergoose - I am sure he is waiting to have his tummy scratched!
SOTH - your otters are adorable and what a great picture of them.

A bit of an air show with the colours of the Spanish flag

They were quite upset when he walked passed and ignored them until they realised it was the wrong man and the wrong bucket
