Ahem! There are no states in Canada - they are provinces!




Oh dear! You know regardless of all the years reading maps and even a brief visit (one afternoon) there I don't think I knew that. I won't forget it now!

This is Ranmore Common on the North Downs in Surrey. They go up but are called downs from the old English 'Den' for hill, as in my neighbours Hendon (high hill) and Neasden (nose shaped hill). I am also located on one right between the two but not named after it.

Didn't seagulls eat grasshoppers in Utah? That's not far, maybe they popped over for a beetle.

This is the village church in Stanmer Park, on the outskirts of Brighton. Another part of the Park is home to the University of Sussex.

PDaz, it's been a very odd winter here. Shaping up to be the dryest in history for Denver. While the mountains have gotten snow, nothing down below. No pretty frost pictures. No winter wonderlands. Seems like every shot is either bare branches, bare bushes, dried foliage, etc. Even the late afternoon clouds for sunset reflection seem to have drifted off. I am so ready for spring! Your beautifully colored flowers posted the other day makes it that much harder to wait.

This elegant Georgian building is Whitewebbs House, built in 1791, and now an excellent restaurant. We dined there on Saturday evening.

Yes please! Oh my word, that looks good. I've got some really hot horseradish, shall I bring some?

Wow, that's a great shot of a seagull, Tredici! Love it!

See the wee spider inside the flower? I didn't see it until after I'd already taken a few shots otherwise I'd never have gotten so close. The flower pics didn't turn out so well, but I liked the spider anyway.

I haven't posted in a while - it's been so darn cold I was more concerned in getting there and getting back in the wee hours of the morning. Last Tuesday it got down to 8F (-13C) about the time I was getting back to the warehouse. BRR!

Now just one week later and I have a blossoming dogwood. YAY for spring! I love that blue sky.

Muscari and purple Midnight Dream petunias in my garden. Not sure why they look blue!

How lovely! I wish Spring would hurry up!

The other day DeputyGary asked me where I was from; the answer was Salisbury, just south of Stonehenge and with one of the most beautiful cathedrals in England.

And for "afters" - the "sweet" version of Yorkshire pudding with icing sugar

There was a good few years when London lost most of its red buses, and suddenly they all returned. The new mayor must have changed the rules but can't think of any other benefits we gained besides that. This is the middle of Harlesden as two buses pass in a typical London scene.

How very cool -- I've never seen a tulip tree!

My back wall is covered with intertwined honeysuckle and jasmine vines. The first to bloom is the pink jasmine -- not as profuse a fragrance as the star or Arabian jasmine that bloom later but still very lovely.

What a wonderful lot of photos! I musn't stay away more than a day in future, I'm overwhelmed in the nicest possible way.

These birds all decided to go for a swim today, which was a beautiful, sunny, not-quite-Spring-yet, day.
