Is that near where you live? Is that a flooded plain or are those trees (what kind are they?) always surrounded by water?

And by the way, great picture! smile

Beautiful, Jill! Just lovely.

My sister and I spent much of the afternoon of the last day of May visiting the Glanmore National Heritage Site, a lovely Victorian mansion that has recently had a lot of restoration work done to its interion. This is the "suspended" staircase.

Love that sunset - so peaceful and tranquil.

spanishliz, you're so lucky to be allowed to take photos indoors in places like that. We aren't any more, and that is a lovely shot of the staircase.

Sue - is Jersey doing much for the Jubilee, looks like you're ready for it.

I asked permission first, and was asked to keep flash to a minimum. All the photos I took were with available light, so they were happy with that.

Thanks for the sunset comments smile
Tori - yes, it's right by my house. The trees are gum trees and the water is just leftovers from floods earlier this year - it's slowly going down but with our winter just starting it'll hang around til next summer probably.

Here's a bale of wool all pressed up and ready to truck out.

Does that mean you got at least eleven bales of wool? How many sheep do you run?

Impressive sunset there.

This is one of apparently unlimited typical English village centres, Potton in Bedfordshire

yep, Ertrum, 11 is the bale number - that was only day one so there's lots more to come. We hope to get 120(ish). Each bale weighs around 200kg and there's about 5-6kg from one grown sheep. There's about 6000 of them running around out there. smile

I cannot remember what all the stencils mean, but does 'M PCS' mean 'Merino Pieces'?

yep, that's the one.
The longer number with the Australian map under it is the wool classer's stencil so they know who to blame wink

Fairly massive I should think. There is a street party outside my house on Tuesday hence feeling the need to put up some bunting, making an effort.

There are Jubilee Arches over some roads, street parties, concerts, old motor cavalcade and much more. I will be a a Jubilee Fayre all next weekend helping out.

We don't get our royal visitors until next month then we are having horseface and her old man gracing our shores, sorry, I ought to have said Prince Charles and Camilla.

"horseface and her old man " -- not too keen on Camilla, then?

Fox sitting at the bottom of my garden this morning. I had to take this through the kitchen window as if I'd gone outside he would probably have run before I could get the photo.

Copago, your sunset photo is amazing.

Love that fox, Christina! There seems to be a plan going on inside its head. Fantastic Mr Fox style.

Hope everyone's Jubilee celebrations are going well. What a pity about the rain today! The flotilla was beautiful nonetheless, I thought.

Rain here too:
