The Plaza Mayor, a grand arcade square in the center of Madrid ,the most prominent building on the Plaza Mayor is the Casa de la Panaderia, the seat of the powerful baker's guild.It has a lovely feel to it and is very popular with both tourists and the locals.Not my "fav" city, but well worth the visit.

Here is a photo of one of my roses. It's called Morden Blush.




They've just started coming out. This is one that the Cankerworms didn't get to. One interesting point about these is that the temperature when the bud is forming affects the amount of blush (pink). If it's cool then it comes out with more pink in it but if it's warm it is almost all white.

So good to see Totnes again, I went nearby every year from 1968-1991 and really miss it.

Here's one of my favourite type of cottages in Hampstead Garden Suburb, they are spread out for about a mile but very rare anywhere else from what I've seen. They were built mainly in the 1910s.

Totnes is a one off isnt it Sat - still full of artists and "older" hippies... love it. Hampstead GV reminds me so much of Welwyn Garden City where I grew up.

This is another ancient relic picci of fishing nets drying at Orford.

I recognise the falls as well, you must have been using a zoom as my grandpa insisted on going through the fence to get a closer shot but in the end the roll of film jammed and he got nothing.

I always said hippies had managed to survive in Totnes indefinitely, and glad to hear they're still there. When I first went in 1968 it was the height of the era and while the rest of the country changed it stayed the same there.

For today's photo I must wear my FT anorak, as many here know I'm a number plate spotter, and like any collector spotting and catching a rarity is like an albino blackbird for a birdwatcher or error for a stamp collector.
This one is the same, more so as I've seen it twice before and didn't get a chance to see what it was, and it's not a real plate.

The car is an electric hire car, and I'm calling the firm on Monday for details, but it appears they probably don't need number plates at all as this is not a British plate or anywhere else. The other car had another AMV but with different numbers, and my informed guess is they are fleet numbers in case they have an accident they can be traced. But they are not legal in the UK hence the mystery until I learn the answer. But this is so rare it may be unique.



In case anyone's curious to know, UK numbers do not use leading zeros, our old plates would have been 1 AMV- 999 AMV. This also had a white rear plate which is also illegal. In fact only Canada and USA use such a format and certainly not on UK style format, and electric cars do not have special status here as far as I know as I get plate updates regularly from the club I joined. I've waited months for this one and will be getting a solution very soon now.

Brilliant shot of the Falls! I can hear the roar.

Several of the businesses downtown are celebrating significant anniversaries this summer, so they decided to have a party. Tents were set up in the alley behind the shops, food served to valued customers (and pretty much anyone who happened by) and music was played. It poured rain this morning, but by 5 p.m. when it all got going (and this photo was taken) it was a lovely day.

Wow, that's a great shot Gary...

This is the cool interior of our favourite little hotel near Arta in Majorca... peace and tranquility away from the costas!

These are Mums that are suppose to be annuals here but we left them over the winter and they came back as good as ever.
