Yesterday evening I went to the last "Concert by the Bay" of the summer. At one point I turned away from the stage, and took this photo. Even though you can't really see the sailboat in the distance, I'm quite pleased with the overall effect (completely untouched).

Last April or May, I noticed that a packet of potatoes had a 7 or 8 which were starting
to sprout. Rather than waste them, I decided to plant them in a vacant strip of soil I'd recently
dug over, just to see whether they'd grow. From those few potatoes I got about 15 plants
come up and from those, half a bucket of potatoes of very varying sizes. Well I was impressed!



Look at that one monster-sized one. Big enough to make 2 jacket potaotes. smile

When I was looking at one of the other birds, a little girl asked what they ate - I couldn't bring myself to say "rabbits" so I said "tigers" and she laughed a lot. Then her younger brother arrived, with his face painted. As a tiger. laugh

If anyone's heard of Neasden (it is possible, it is quite well known in some circles) here's the North Circular near IKEA. It may look just like an ordinary road to you but it's my ordinary road!

A plaque in the floor of York Minster. There was a massive fire back in 1984, and it took a lot of work to make it as beautiful as it is now.

It's Fall Fair time, and I spent some time at our local one yesterday evening. Took this as I was walking home.

The Westgate Bridge, spanning the Yarra River, is the major link between central Melbourne and its western suburbs.

Aww, he's lovely... and not a bit evil like the owl I saw!

Here's a man waiting in a pond. I'm not sure what he's waiting for, maybe a man with a cloth and some soapy water. wink

That little owl is lovely!

The owl could be straight from a cartoon .. beautiful pic!

There are lots of beautiful photos and I have been very remiss in not commenting more. Sorry gang.

On an up note I have half sorted out my camera problems - I couldn't connect it to the computer, the connection is dodgy there somwhere. The temtaion to use it as a good excuse to buy a new camera at $550 for the one I wanted was fought and I ended up with a card reader for $22. lol

I'm going to go and take a pic right now. be right back. lol

I think it's the eyes, they just make him look so cute and appealing.
