I thought I would pop down to he Lavender Farm to take some photos as it is looking good from the road. I drove in only to find that it is closed on Mondays so all I got was a peek from the carpark. I will have to go back another day and pay to go in, hopefully before they harvest.

Canada Day fireworks as seen from my backyard just after ten o'clock last night. I took at least a dozen photos, with varying degrees of success, but rather liked this one.

'Duckling Island' - or more accurately 'peninsula'

The remaining bit of a fourteenth-century friary in Conduit Hill, Rye - now a pottery workshop.

Inspired by Mothergoose's computer corner, I took a photo of mine. It's also the place I watch TV (left of the desk). The computer itself is the other side of the wall ...noisy thing that it is!

Your chair looks very similar to mine.

The "mighty" Darling River which hasn't flowed in this part of it, near Wilcannia, for over a year. A rise did get within 50kms but fell away. The town is now on bore water supplies. From where I took the photo the water should be above my head ... and even above the head of a normal height person ...

Following in TW & Mothergoose's footsteps, here is my little computer corner of the world.



It was an empty bedroom but we bought a new queen size bed and our old one will be taking up residence with my computer. The room's not that big so I won't be rolling across the floor in my chair to get a CD anymore. But at least visitors won't have to sleep on the couch anymore.

Here... drum roll... my first attempt at posting a photo. It's from Pennsylvania's Laurel Hill State Park, where I camped two nights last week. This scene was along a trail that goes through an old-growth hemlock forest that was inexplicably never logged out, and some of the hemlocks are over 300 years old.

I have to confess that this was not my idea originally - someone (I think it was Satguru or Gatsby) started the idea in the blogs and I thought it was a good one. I read the blogs but I don't write one, so I posted my picture here instead.

What I want to know is how you all keep your computer areas so darned tidy! I'd have to spend at least half an hour to make mine look so pristine!

Welcome to Photo-a-Day Kapuskasing. A nice green scene.

What a pity the World distributes its rainfall so unevenly. Here we are in UK with deluges of the stuff and the Darling River looks like that.

Here's a photo taken while we were on a boat-ride on Lake Windemere:

Today I went to an amazing shopping mall called Megabox, built near to the old airport in one of the old industrial areas, being restored FAST!
This is a view downwards, inside the Mall , which is 18 floors of shops!

Wow, Copago! That picture certainly shows us what a real drought is. And welcome, Kapuskasing: thanks for a lovely pic.

This is the Old Rectory at Netherfield, near Battle in Sussex.

Welcome and great photo Kapuskasing. Ren that shot makes me a bit dizzy. 18 floors of shopping! yikes, my credit card would be on fire by the time I was finished.

Here is a closeup of a Scabeosa or pin cushion flower. Mrs. Argus calls it the beautiful flower with the ugly name.

The computer area idea was from my blog but I saw it in another forum for cable customers where we try and get all our problems sorted out. I wish mine was as tidy as the others but there's no room to put everything away here.

This is the footbridge over Staples Corner, where the Edgware Road crosses the North Circular in Cricklewood. I pass it a few times a week as I only live a mile away.

"No prizes for guessing what this structure is."

It's not the iron bridge at Neasden is it?

I'll have to post that tomorrow, now I know what it was inspired by!

I will have to head to town and get a piccie of the Anzac Bridge- it has a rather unique nickname which will make sense when you see it.
