Welcome back Sara!

In quickly with some new year fireworks. I realised stills weren't much use after looking back and switched to video, but you get the general idea.

On Christmas afternoon we were treated to several supercell storms in quick succession. Very scary stuff! I photographed the evening sky at the time my guests judged it safe to drive home. Apart from roof leaks, my home was undamaged, but several suburbs to the north had extensive property damage from large hailstones.

I havn't had much a chance to get out with the camera lately, so here is a shot of what my garden looked like at this time last year. It was about -13C daytime as well. Thankfully nothing so extreme this winter (well not so far anyway)

We found 4 of these beauties thrown onto the village rubbish tip. Repotted and perked up, they all survived. They cost about 10 pounds each, even here, at this time of year.

Lovely poinsettias Ren, what a fortunate find! In the same vein I have my eye on a small dog kennel which has been abandoned on a kerbside near me. It would make a good shelter for one of my chooks who needs a few days isolated in the Sin Bin to break her of perennial broodiness.

Happy new year Precious!

Another straight road, but this one goes nowhere but to the field at the end of it and a muddy path through it we got half way along and had to turn back.

Funny how innocent looks mean not a thing. This is the villain who pulled down Xmas decs from the tree , batted them around the floor, tried to pull down the whole tree, and "thought that a plate of turkey on the coffee table was for her-honest".
Age means nothing either, Rosie is now 12.

They certainly could be twins, auntie! Wonder what mischief they're cooking up?

The moon has been clearly visible in the bright blue winter afternoon sky the last couple of days. It has also been very, very cold.

A friend of mine has just opened a gallery in rural Tasmania where she sells her own range of teddy bear creations together with dolls, jewellery and photography by local artisans.
I'm about to gladden the hearts of five little relatives with these zipper bags, meant for storing treasures. The pink one has a cord for use as a girl's handbag.

I was rather pleased with this photo I took from a moving vehicle whilst we were travelling through Sabah. It turned out much better than I thought it would.

We saw a lot of water buffalo, always surrounded by egrets. The egrets have a commensal relationship with the water buffalo, feeding on insects and small vertebrates disturbed by buffalo in the grass.

Yes we have egrets. When I first came here there were buffalo in use for ploughing,etc , not now, and they are now wandering around in such 'wild' as is left, occasionally straying onto the main road and causing a hazard.
Poor Precious! I might knit her some boots.

I told Precious about the boots, ren, and she said "Meow!" Looking again at the pictures of kitties with Christmas decorations reminded me that I had some taken on my little camera that weren't on the computer yet. Here's one of them.

Mollie is just lovely!

I spotted these birds this afternoon as my bus crossed a bridge. I then walked along the river path to get some photos of them on their little ice floe.

Just another view familiar to me all my life, although the road is far wider and the industrial estate fairly new it's somewhere I've gone through many times in both its versions, the North Circular Road in Edmonton.

Some people were obviously fed up with the regular display of christmas lights (Ghent, Belgium) and decided to take things into their own hands (or feet?) in this unique fasion:

Unfortunately in London trainers on wires are to show the boundary of a gang. I remember seeing the first ones on Chamberlayne Road in Willesden in 1986 on the way to college. I don't know if they were specifically but the others I've seen around since probably were.

This sign contains a history lesson, and is incredibly rare. These were not made after 1963, and although footpath signs were generally made locally rather than to a national design but nearly all were thin green fingerposts which are still quite common as there are so many footpaths. I came across a photo of one panel type near me but had just vanished before I could take a photo, and was the same thin strip as the fingerpost but without a pointed end. This I came across today was a full size sign, and the third I'd found in Enfield so presumably something they made themselves based on the standard road name plates. The other two (one found today as well) just said 'public footpath' with an arrow underneath, and have left and right now, but this was the footpath equivalent of an old direction sign.

Funny you should say that, despite having a T junction on my own block till maybe 2005 long after I'd moved away I never thought to take a photo, and just found a tiny blurry image of it in the background of one by sheer chance. The red triangle warning signs, despite being in the millions, were the second to go after the red circle signs I don't even remember, but hung around well into the 80s before finally fizzling out to a bare minimum. As a result my project which started in 2008 only found three, two with pictures although one was missing a corner, and one with just text. I was still searching on Streetview over the weekend as I continue to do, and found this beauty on military land in deepest Surrey. Someone's squashed the triangle but otherwise like new.

We did the Mount Kinabalu Park Canopy Walk, which involved a 30-minute trek up the mountain in the pouring rain (it just about killed me). The Canopy Walk is about 160 metres long and about 30-40 metres high off the ground (41 metres at its highest point). It did wonders for my acrophobia. (Wait until you see tomorrow's follow-up picture - I must have been insane!)

I was surprised at how much Precious seemed to be enjoying the snow, digging in it, stalking around to the back yard (with me in tow), asking to go out twice. She seemed to be having fun, but when she'd had enough she went straight to the door and yowed to go back in!

Heavenly, Sharon! Is that a Portuguese nunnery or similar?
I always think of Goa as just beaches. So lovely.

A typical country pub right on the north edge of London. I didn't go in, I was just taking photos.

Lovely view of Goa! Satguru, that pub reminds me of one I used to know, but it was south of London.

Here's today's snowy picture, before the sidewalk plough had been along.

The pub looks lovely, David. Sara, it's a family owned private beach resort. I don't know if it was just a family house or something else before it was turned into a hotel.



Just happened to chance upon this big guy cooling off in the river. He was fast asleep.

Ren, if you didn't like the last photo, don't look at this one! laugh

After I completed the canopy walk, Maynooth kindly drew my attention to the fact that many of the knots holding the bridge together were unravelling. They should look like the knot on the right. Unfortunately, far too many of them looked like the knot on the left. Good thing I didn't notice this while on the walk or I would have had a heart attack.

What a wonderful photo of the elephant!

Love the photo of the elephant! Do not want to do what MG and Maynooth did, even if the knots are perfect. No-no-no.

Here's Precious, engaging in a favourite game of "What do you mean, I'm in the way? Me? Never?"

Precious looks more like Lucy every time I see her, even the white socks are the same. It brings back some good memories. The pub was near Crews Hill which is on the edge of Enfield but it's a very common style everywhere.

I'm with Ren, enough of the dizzying heights! smile

It wasn't such a bitter cold day today, and Precious enjoyed the snow a bit more. One of the neighbour cats had walked around to our back deck, and Precious followed the trail, stepping daintily in the other cat's paw prints, and sniffing like a dog.

Okay, okay, I can take a hint! laugh

Here we are, safe on the ground! When I was doing Botany at university (back in the 1970s), I learned about the Rafflesia flower and it fascinated me. I've always wanted to see one. The Rafflesia is fairly rare and it is the world's biggest flower, at about 1 metre (39 inches) in diameter. It takes 15 months to grow, then flowers for only about 6 days. It smells like rotting meat (that is the flower's way of attracting insects such as flies for pollination). Because of the smell, it is sometimes called a corpse flower or a meat flower.

When we visited the park, we were advised that there were none around. Luckily, however, we did manage to find one! The round black things are buds. This flower was 85 cm (34 inches)in diameter.

Glad you enjoyed seeing Golders Green again Sara, I was just coming back from Hampstead Heath and it hit me, and pulled over to take photos. The prints looked impressive as well.

Here's an architect designed house near where I used to live in Hampstead Garden Suburb. I think they all are there. Ours was art deco but this is more arts and crafts and would probably cost about £4 million.

Tonight I used one of my Christmas stocking stuffers (pictured) and saw the local junior hockey team lose 3-2 in what was quite an entertaining game. I took a few photos at the game on my little (old) camera, but they are not very good (and have people in them) so the ticket will tell the tale smile

Thanks Sara! smile

St Jude's church from the northern end of Hampstead Heath



We could see this from the back of our house and was built at the highest point of the area so it could be seen from as far around as possible. It comes into view here by West Hendon Broadway and from a wonderful view from the flyover at Brent Cross across the heath and towards the woods in Highgate.

Coolcat90 and I went to a day spa and had a "Borneo Therapy" which consisted of a head to toe massage and being slapped hard with these little bags of steamed herbs (seven herbs including nutmeg, red ginger, betel leaf, and lemongrass) and oil.

The original national signs were standardised in 1933, and this is one of the originals, and may be even older although the specific format continued till 1963 with slight alterations.

I've never come across friendly sheep in a field before, but you can see these all came to see me as soon as I arrived. The flash went off though when I took this and seemed to put all but one off coming much further.

Welcome Tori, I see we share a birthday of sorts! So I will wish you happy FT birthday.

These sort of scenes may be common elsewhere but in Britain maybe in single figures for more than a few in the same place. London's added many more in the last decade or so, but the one place with them for most of my life is Croydon. The best views are off the flyover where you can't walk or stop, but this is the edge of the office block area.

This is where we began and ended our river cruise. It was actually quite dark (sky-wise) when I took this photo upon our return. Not sure what I did to make it come out so light.

Did someone mention old road signs? It's been a really good month, I was driving through deepest Surrey minding my own business when I came across this beauty. The red sign is the new replacement for a hill with gradient and red triangle above, but the low gear instruction is the original that came with it and as still needs to be followed has been kept. This is the first one I've found outside Scotland, Wales and Yorkshire so extremely lucky one came my way as well.

Here's a wintry picture for the end of the month. Poor bird was looking for some open water.

Satguru,

It has taken me days of pondering to figure out our "birthdays"!

I looked at your profile to see if your bday was Nov. 16, I looked at the days we joined ft and again no match.

Happy belated REAL birthday and thank you for welcoming me to FT on my new birthday. smile

I've enjoyed all the posted pictures. Its nice to see the world through others eyes.

Tori

Thanks Tori! As there was a cake on my profile for the day as long as you saw it before Monday you'd have seen what I meant, as when I arrived I saw you'd just registered on the same day and posted just ahead of me. But you worked out the puzzle and that's what brought most of us here in the first place.

My FT birthday is now in just over two weeks, and will be 12. I think some would say they just can't get rid of me that easy wink
