My school and best friends lived on or just off this road when I was at primary school, and although the area is far too expensive for me if I really wanted to I could just afford a flat in this very nicely situated block among others.



Brookland Rise, Hampstead Garden Suburb. The brook runs along the left of this building.

Real mixture of weather today, from glorious sunshine to torrential rain.
I saw a beautiful rainbow earlier, but couldn't stop to take a photo.
Here's another happy family, not worried by wet weather, mute swans on one of the many lakes in the nearby Lea Valley Regional Park.

Some time ago Mrs. Bunny decided to make a nest to raise her young. So she jumped up into one of our cement flower pots (the largest) and proceeded to dig a hole in the middle amongst the wildflowers Mrs Argus planted. She brought grass to cover the hole and lined it with bits of her fur. For weeks we could see nothing, but she kept coming back from time to time, so like worried parents we waited and waited. One day as we peeked inside the mass of flowers we could see something and it moved. There were two little bunnies and cute as can be. I know you're thinking, you won't think their cute when they're eating your flowers. But we don't care, bunnies got to eat too.

Here is the place of birth:



Here are two links to larger photos, the first gives you an idea of how well hidden they are, there is a bunny right in the middle of the photo, very hard to see. The second is the best I could get of one of them without scaring them.

I look at all the (truly lovely) photos of your cities in here and am wowed at both the photography skills AND the sights shared. By contrast, this is a picture entering the bustling little metropolis I call home . That's Opie up there on the right and I believe one can catch a glimpse of Andy near the traffic light...
*And I have to say just how small the place is (bigger cities are twenty miles away, for the record) - one couldn't buy a Harry Potter book here if they stood anywhere for a week waiting to. Not a bookstore for miles and miles. And miles ...

I reached Dymocks in Central at 7 am, collected HP, had some breakfast in a posh caff and then went to the bank. I was waiting for it to open, when I took this shot from upstairs . It is a view of Chater Square in Central Hong Kong. Usually people take a picture of the Bank FROM Chater Sq.

My granddaughter didn't want her picture taken, so she hid her face. Luckily she couldn't hide her beautiful red hair. It makes for an "artistic" shot. LOL

When we walked past here last week, there was a tall glass building. This week just a heap of twisted iron. They must have had a smashing time!

Oh argus they are so cute. I would have let them eat all the flowers in my garden.

I wonder when we will hear from Sue again.

Well it is a big book, poor dear, I expect she is having trouble with her look and say. No pictures either . A superb book, I must say.

Well the bunnies have left the nest. There were 3 in there, I looked out our kitchen window last evening and saw Mrs. Bunny hanging around the nest, so I left for a while and upon returning saw 3 little bunnies at the base of the cement pot. I also saw a CAT!!!!! Out I ran and chased him away, he didn't want to leave so I stayed outside for some time watching out for them. I got this photo of one of them. Flopsy Mopsy and Peter cute as buttons.



Of course this morning there is no sign of them, sigh!!! they leave home so soon.

With all the rains in Texas, Lake Belton is currently 30 feet above normal. Some friends have a boat docked at the marina full-time. They are without marina power and have to run their generator, but fresh water was finally established the other day. We had a good time anyway.

When I lived in the Old Town here as a kid, my doctor's surgery (consulting room) was in this 18th-century house at the northern end of the High Street.

Bunnies, boats, buildings, books, bikes and beyond -- everyone gets applause or a big pat on the back for posting such interesting photos...

This picture is of Grey Towers, on the Arcadia University campus in Glenside. It was built as a private home in the 1890s, and has gargoyles and griffins all over the place, including the one on this week's themed-thread, looking like he's seen a ghoul. Of course, a building like that has a few ghost stories, too.

Grey Towers, grey picture:

Recently there has been an ad on TV for a comedy show, featuring a routine poking fun at the name of Belleville's annual festival, which was held here last weekend. Here, on the riverfront walk, is a sign celebrating it.

This is Hong Kong's answer to graffiti. The KCR train was specially painted up (inside and out) for the 10th anniversary of the handover. It looks lovely.

Here's ClaraSue doing her famous dive. While we were at Belton Lake, we had to buy her a life jacket because she spends so much time in the water. It was a little big, but she didn't mind. She loves swimming.

This is my other 'palm tree', ie Cordyline Australis identified for me by Sue and satguru. Now that I know the species, I know this variety is Red-Star
This was planted about 15 years ago, a small plant as shown in the link, and it now has three separate trunks, and stands over 2 metres tall!
