I did wonder at first if they weren't pens, but convinced myself that it couldn't have been that tongue

They looked like pens to me but I couldn't work out why they'd put them all together like that. The first impression is usually right whatever puts you off afterwards.

I'm making the most of the night setting now I know how it works, this is West Hendon Broadway where I do a lot of my local shopping.

These fuzzy cacti are Teddy Bear Cholla. They're native to California, Arizona and Mexico.

Great photos everyone! Especially like the oleander, lantana and cactus you posted CmdrK - I have oleander too, but they are pale yellow. I'm told they are difficult to grow in my area, but I can't kill 'em! Cut them back to the ground, and they came back, bigger and prettier than ever.

Oohh, and Sellavee posted oleander, too! I really like them, so guess I better keep them.

The moat around the Kastellet (The Citadel) in Copenhagen. Still a lot of walking left until I would reach the hostel I was staying at.....

There was a motor show near us a while ago. This photo shows a couple of the impressive cars that were on display:

There are some bizarre plants in the North American deserts. This is a Jumping Cholla.

Good to see somewhere thousands of miles away you know Sara, I didn't go inside but most round my way were ripped apart and either modernised or far worse converted to restaurants over the last 20 years. That means removing all the different bars and opening it up to one big room, or putting tables everywhere and leaving a tiny area by the front door for drinkers. But that's the better scenario as most of the ones I liked are now demolished.

Three of the Sugarloaf Islands at New Plymouth. The two closest are Mataora (Round Rock) & Pararaki (Seagull Rock) with Motomahunga (Saddleback Rock) in the background I think.

The Chiltern Hills at Remenham. I didn't know they stretched that far west.

Lovely lovely photos everybody!

I took my camera for a walk today, looking for some autumn colours. Not many trees have changed yet, but I found this one.

One of a few pictures I got while on Catalina. It is an amazing place! This was taken on Chimes Tower Rd.

Liz's foliage shot made me think it's getting to be that season back east. Out here, though, we're looking at things like this Rabbit Ears cactus.

This was taken on the pier at Catalina. The same tower from my other picture is on the right.

St Albans Church in Copenhagen, seen from The Kastellet (The Citadel). It was built from 1885 to 1887 for the growing English community so is also known as 'Den Engelske Kirke' or 'The English Church'.

A poor photo but this is the Gefion Fountain in Copenhagen. Unfortunately there were a group of people doing something in the water & to the fountain so it was very difficult to get an a slightly decent photograph. At least we can see the Norse goddess associated with ploughing, Gefjun driving a group of animal figures. I hope to get back there when in Europe next and take a better photo.
