Again these were taken during my trip to the garden centre.

I reckon a few of our ladies might like to try these - then again maybe not!

Ooooer, I love hats!

I haven't been anywhere today apart from the garden, briefly, so here is a section of my garden wall.

The so-called Conqueror's Stone on the sea-front at Hastings. According to legend, William the Conqueror dined off this stone after landing on the English coast. I don't think anyone really knows where the stone came from or much about its early history.

Overlooking Fleet Pond. It certainly looks an unattractive place on such a dreary day. I'll have to take the same shot in a few months time:

It's another rainy day, so here's one from a couple of days ago. I'd known for awhile that Winston waits for me to come home sitting on top of the couch, but he always jumps down before I can catch him in the act. This day he was barking away and I walked in from the computer to see what was up - I think he'd mistaken the doorbell on "Frasier" for the real thing!

This admittedly is a pretty ordinary looking main road, but for 28 years meant I was nearly home, especially when on the 102 bus returning from school. The houses in this shot are the box type but many have pointed roofs which look a lot more interesting. But I missed them all here...

These are some of the palm trees in our apartment's courtyard on a nice overcast day. (If I look out my patio window, they're just ahead and to the left.) I don't know how tall they are, but the building they are next to is two stories. I know they are very flexible and sturdy, but they sure do sway alarmingly in windy weather. The squirrels love to run up and down them, I guess they can get good footholds.

It's a miserable grey drizzly day here today, and I don't feel like going out, so here's another pic from my trip over to Lewes last week. This is a tapestry from the museum in Anne of Cleves' house - not contemporary with Anne, I'm afraid, but a bit of chinoiserie from eighteenth-century Soho.

A photo from today's bike ride. The weather was as dreary today as it was yesterday. This area will soon turn green and with some Sun on it, will look worth the effort of riding to it. Roll on Summer...

I've just been scanning some older images in, and came across this one, taken about seven years ago. That is me by the way, and there were six tigers in the compound! Definitely one of life's great experiences. They may be juveniles, but you can sense their power.

It is a lovely sunny day and actually warm enough to sit out on my deck. Here then is a self portrait (and I hope the wrinkles don't show too much) of me sunning myself in late March!

I went out with my camera today and saw a field being ploughed and there were loads of seagulls following the plough, that would have made a great photo, as would the calves I saw just afterwards. Alas the road was narrow and there was a car immediately behind me so I was unable to stop. These are in a neighbour's front garden.

Nothing artistic yesterday, but this is a typical view of the area around where I live, with Wembley Stadium (about to be used officially for the first time today) just behind me. The bus is the 83 from Golders Green to Ealing which is also the one that goes closest to where I live.

I'm not sure whether this sign is strictly true, but John Logie Baird certainly lived in Hastings while he was working on his invention.

I went out with my camera today in search of Jersey cows to photograph. Whilst I was out I filled up my car with petrol, or should I say the young man filled my car. Since this service seems to be rare, apart from here , I thought I would take a photo of him filling another car. If you look closely you will see the driver sitting in the front, on the right being as we drive on the correct side of the road!

Interesting point Tom, as one of the 3 pubs named after him is in Muswell Hill. One is also in Hastings and the other Edinburgh. Being Scottish he moved from there to work in London and Wikipedia says he invented the TV in his London laboratory at 22 Frith Street, London W1, and I assume the Muswell Hill connection would be it was all broadcast from Alexandra Palace. He lived in Bexhill the last two years of his life but haven't got any direct Hastings connection and that was long after he'd invented TV, 20 years in fact. His son wrote an article about it here. saying although the pubs were named after him he never drank himself.

Sue, you can guess what I like in your photo the most, the number plate. You'd be surprised how many we get here, and I recently also saw a Guernsey dealer plate with a Z before the numbers which was so rare it's not even pictured in my book. Pity I didn't have my camera at the time.

My sister and I were out scrapbooking today, in the basement of the church shown here. I took a couple of my sister at work, but she vetoed showing them here, for one reason or another

As a side note here, my mum and dad lived in Muswell Hill before the war , and my dad worked for the BBC all his life. So he worked at Ally Pally right up to leaving as a War Correspondent for the BBC in the Far East. He spoke fondly of the place and my ma loved Muswell Hill.I would have been born there , but she had to be evacuated and I was born in a calmer area at that time.

I didn't realise your origins were so local to me Ren, I lived in East Finchley for over half my life and was born in Highgate. Small world truly. And I was in Muswell Hill last week taking photos by coincidence.

Sue, I'll be very impressed if you do get a photo, I suspect the easiest way would be to ask at the entry port as they are dealer plates for export only as far as I know, but if any dealers regularly export cars they may have the odd one ready to ship out. I saw mine in Cromwell Road Kensington, and had I not seen the GBG plate could have stumped me for years as without a picture to go on would also be almost the same as Dutch plates for the same purpose as I've seen them made on British style plates before, and got a photo. I think the people who publish the book would be very interested in having it as well.

I did find some cows on my drive yesterday, unfortunately the close up was too close and I chopped off her ears so this one is a little further away. Beautiful creatures.

I like to find occasional ghosts from the past in the form of old signs and inscriptions, so I was pleased to find that this rather tatty kitsch shop in the Old Town preserves a bit of one of the iconic retail chains of my childhood - the Home & Colonial Tea Stores.
