This little guy and about four or five of his friends (or siblings, it's hard to tell grin) come out at night and wander around my front porch. They're only about 3 inches long.

While on my trip to Jersey, Sue kindly arranged another visit to St Malo. The regionis renowned for its Bretagne lace and here is a street stall.

I was selling potatoes and strawberries for charity this afternoon, behind our stall were two Bentleys under covers. It was an open garden and hundreds of people came and ate cream teas and strolled in the stunning gardens. I only got one photo as it was so hot that I couldn't be bothered to wander about taking photos.

Lovely photos everybody!

Yesterday was the annual local Garden Tour (a fundraiser for scholarships by the Canadian Federation of University Women) and I walked to those that didn't need a car to get to, took loads of photos. It was hot, but not as humid as it was last week, so a good day for it. This is part of one of the featured gardens.

Lots of lovely gardens at this time!
This is not Monet's garden or even a Japanese one, just a copy in the grounds of Highnam Court.

Wow Howie, nice closeup - your goldfinches look very different from ours!

Love all the photos this month, Howie, your goldfinch is very similar to ours. Unfortunately they are nowhere near as prolific here as they used to be.

I've been really lazy this month, hardly had the camera out at all, it's just been too hot to do much, especially the last few days.

Ren, years ago there was a seaview from that room, distant, but there. Then they built some houses which blocked the view of the sea and had the cheek to charge more for those new houses which had a seaview!
