And here is the actual place in the drawing, shitfed a little to the right of the original as the last shops weren't actually in that one so I had to take this to fill in the gap.

I have that same cutting tool, too, Liz! And terrific drawing, Satguru - a talent I've always wished to have.

Here's a brave little tree on the edge of the Grand Canyon. We stopped here to watch the sunset.

This year we've had the best display ever of Spring flowers in the garden. We cut these pale daffodils for the house.

Wow, Gats, what a wonderful skyline!
Those daffodils are beautiful, picqero.

Here's a picture of a pair of shoes I bought my daughther recently (No, I don't expect them to remain white for long ):

Love the morning sky, Gats!

I'd like to add my first daffodil of the season to the virtual flower garden I'm particularly pleased to see it, as my daffs didn't bloom at all last year.

Here's a photo I took from the TV tower in Berlin (one of many pix I took ) . The viewing platform is around 200 metres above the ground ,so you get a great panoramic view of the city .Well worth the 9.50 Euros it costs to go up .Oh and there are a couple of hi-speed lifts (elevators) to get you up there ,no stairs to negotiate ! In the picture ,you can see one of the S-Bahn trains .

I was sorting some books today and I came across my very old copy of 'The Water Babies' by Charles Kingsley. I believe it is a first edition and belonged to my mother. This is one of the colour plates - there are several and each is protected by a tissue guard. I loved this book and spent ages trying to copy the pictures when I was younger - without much success.

Here's my sister, looking a bit apprehensive as she passes this towering Pepsi display when we were out shopping this afternoon.

I may try to get some photos this week while vacationing. I can then post them when I get back.

As for the Pepsi tower, I don't think I've seen one quite that tall!

It would be tempting to take a can of Pepsi out of the middle of that lot .

I took a photo of a Canada Goose today. It turned out so well focussed that I made a close-up of just its head:

Great goose portrait, and that Pepsi tower looks like it ought to have a safety barrier around it
This is the 16th century cottage known as The Priest's House in nearby Benington a small village with a long history!

Great goose, TW!

What a nice shot of the family, Jane.

After visiting the Grand Canyon my hubby and I enjoyed a couple of days at a casino/resort on the Colorado River, right at the tip of Nevada. We had great luck playing video slots - in fact we won side-by-side jackpots at this one!

Would you be the one to do it, TW?

We've been having quite the spring storm, here. It's not unusual to get snow in April, but it IS unusual for it to stick around - this is the third day and the forecast says it's not over yet. Last week the flowerbed under the window had four inch high tulip spears - I hope they surive this.

It's uncommon for me to see as much snow as is in your picture in December or January here, agony! Does it usually snow this late in April? Today's the 21st, and I've not seen a snow after April 7.

Great goose pic, Tellie

Spring has sprung here. My sympathies to those still having snow.

I have seen snow in every month, even July and August. A big dump like this in April is not at all unusual (they were saying on the radio this morning that April is the month where we typically get the most snow), but it is very unusual for it to be still here, and still coming down, three days later. Mostly in the spring we get those big wet ones, and then the next day the sun is shining and it all melts. This is more like normal winter weather, though not as cold - it's only about minus 8 (20 F).

Great family shot Jane, I have one when I was a year or so old of our family with both sets of grandparents and two great grandparents, my own parents and me, and my uncle. I think that was the only one with all four generations and my great grandpa died when I was two, my great grandma carried on till I was 15.

By complete coincidence this is what I was posting today, the place rather than the person. While my other grandma was alive till 1975 we either picked her up here or went past it to take her home to Essex. Here is Turnpike Lane station in Hornsey looking pretty much the same as it did back then, and sunny for a change.

I'm thinking cold thoughts in July and August, where I typically see 100°+ a lot. It hit 90° or so here today, so snow is definitely out of the question. There were work crews turning the "Watch for ice on bridge" signs so that we won't see them until we need to (typically late October to early November). Some of them turn up and are "half signs," then unlatched in the fall, but others they have to turn the pole as it is a standard warning sign.

Canal narrowboats are a common sight round here, but rarely do they have a steering cabin and an anchor. The anchor must indicate this particular boat must be able to navigate away from the canal system.
I also like the reflection in the water.
