I did show some bunting, and have a few more of it as I passed through the villages.
I was always fascinated by flyovers as a child, especially so when they built two three deckers near me in the 70s. This is the A1 going over the local road in Biggleswade.

I have a few from a local event but they all have a lot of people in them, too many to blank out all the recognisable faces. Perhaps others have the same problem. I think the same will happen with the torch relay photos I intend to take when it comes through Rayleigh.


Yes, I have photos of the olympic torch going through the town near us. Far too many faces to post here though. frown

Nice looking garden dot, a few more of it perhaps?

Dot: beautiful water/rock fall. Would love to see more of it as well.

Copago: LOL! That pic screams out (in muted whisper of course)... "Bliss"!

I was playing golf in northeast Nebraska. It was a hilly, wooded course next to a lake. On one tee box I happened to look back and saw these wild turkeys crossing the adjacent green. I'd never seen one before so it was a nice experience.



I've heard of birdies, eagles and albatrosses in golf but never "turkeys".

Jubilee pictures? In the village of Malham in the Pennines they had a safari including dolphins in the River Aire (which was less than 6 inches deep at this point despite all the rain) [I was just passing through - a one night stop]

Very colorful, Christi.

Wild turkeys aren't that big, actually. These were probably all female as they were all under 3 feet long. Males are bigger at 4 feet long or longer.

The new rose bed I planted last year is really coming into full flower now. These are all David Austin roses. He specialises in ones that look like old roses, and have wondeful scent, but the disease resistance and repeat flowering of modern roses.

lovely, Christina!
And love the cattle pic too!

I'm out of photos! So here's Buster again. It's a wonder that the blood didn't go all to his brain!

Strikes me that Buster is pretty easy to catch on camera. I never saw him awake yet!
