Another old truck stuck in a field. A dream hubby and I have is to take one of these and fix it up. This one is in a field next to my sister-in-law's farm.



Oops, edited to add: Awesome photo, Sara!

I totally agree with Lisa, Ren - awesome photo, and you inspired me to also say "Happy Earth Day" with this image: Akaka Falls State Park, Hawaii.

ClaraSue, there's a story by Stephen King about an old truck in a field like that......

This is Rayners Lane station in Harrow, just a typical view of Middlesex, which used to be a real county and was mainly built up from the 1930s onwards.

I guess I don't know that story. I've read lots of King books, though. Which one?

I miss having a garden - but all the lovely flower and outdoor images on here certainly make up for it a little. I usually treat myself to a bunch from the supermarket every weekend, this being the latest...

It's called "Uncle Otto's Truck" and it's in the "Skeleton Crew" collection.

Today I was crossing the footbridge just above where the kayaker was last week, and couldn't resist taking a pic of this "Fish at your own risk" sign. The river is still quite high, and bubbling (as you can see), but not quite so wild as it was this time a week ago.

All the pictures here are , as usual, so good and so varied. I think you can never see enough flars, Susan, they are lovely.
The man who owns this van makes hoardings, and he is just about to load one into the van. Sometimes they are for Village festivals, or newly opened shops and businesses. There also ones for funerals. They are always lovely to see. As a side note, the van was sold by us to a guy in another village where we lived years ago. When I saw the numberplate again, I was amazed at the coincidence.

I learned today that another of my sailing friends has passed away. Doug died of a heart attack on his own yacht while preparing it for the coming season. He was a superb yachtsman, and inspired confidence because of his knowledge and experience. You can hear Doug talking to me here on this short video clip, taken while approaching Cherbourg in quite rough seas. He calls me 'a perfectionist' which coming from Doug was a worthy compliment indeed.

I'm sorry to hear about your sailing buddy, picqero. That's a nice picture.

This picture of ClaraSue was taken in Mississippi last week. There are fields and fields of these little maroon flowers all over the state. The color of Clara's collar was the exact shade of the flowers.

Thanks, agony, for coming up with that King title before it drove me nuts! Love all the photos, as usual, and that van story is wild, Sara. I agree, never too many flowers or should I say 'flars'.

That's a beautiful picture of ClaraSue. She looks as if she is 'surveying' her property to make sure all is well.

picqero, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. This has been a tough few months for you hasn't it? Thankfully we have memories and photos that will never leave us....

Today was a beautiful Spring day and I went to have lunch at a garden centre. Afterwards we drove to a tiny beach for a cup of tea and a slice of cake at the cafe there. We sat outside and the sun was really warm on the back of my neck.

The beach is called Archirondel.

Sorry to hear about your friend Picqero, I can see you enjoyed many happy hours sailing together.

Here's what looks like a smart library but is in fact the 1930s inside of Sudbury Town station, still looking like new.

One of these fellows was today's lunch.
Went to Sai Kung with the members of the old folks community where I help out. We all had a grest seafood nosh- up. Don't let anyone tell you that elderly people don't eat much!

Some of the 'gannets' from the Home!

I love the nearby Lea Valley Regional Park, where there are many woodland walks, cycle trails, and shady lakes such as this one - and we're less than 20 miles from central London!

Here's one of the little skyscrapers we get in the UK, they're slowly adding proper ones in Central London but round here (Wembley) this is the biggest we get.

Yesterday was my niece's birthday, she was here from Toronto and we had a lovely dinner and visit with her at my sister's house. This potato salad was part of the meal.

Out at Sai Kung yesterday and took this shot from the waterfront where the seafood restaurant was. There is every sort of seacraft there including these three:> a traditional sampan, an outboard and a little dinghy. It's a fascinating place.

Great photos, everyone! Picqero, so sorry about the loss of your friend.

I haven't taken any new photos this week, so here's one from our trip to Florida last month - my daughter and step-son and their "fort".

Another day in London, but here's something for our USA friends too; the statue of George Washington adjacent the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. It was presented by the people of Virginia and is reputed to stand on imported American soil
