CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM. REPEAT IF REQUIRED.
This morning I made a large print for Pauline. I wasn’t entirely happy with it, and that was my last sheet of the particular paper, so I have ordered some more.
As Becky was on her way to use my equipment to make a print it seemed opportune to scan the last few colour negatives from the North Wales holiday of 1983. These feature:
Matthew by the farmhouse
and in the disused slate mine;
Becky, Matthew and Louisa by the farmhouse;
and Becky and Sam in the mine.
Our daughter needed my printer to produce a picture of a certain size and quality. We did this together, and I learned a few things along the way.
Later, the three of us enjoyed company, chat, and drinks in the Rose Garden where,
among other flourishing blooms, Magic Carpet is spreading out;
the urn framed by the entrance arch has been planted up;
and honeysuckle begins to frame the arch itself.
During the day, clematis Rouge Cardinal, has opened out on the Brick Path Gothic arch.
Jackie added some paneer to the delicious chicken jalfrezi that she fed us on this evening. This was served with superb egg fried rice, onion bhajis, and vegetable samosas. My choice of dessert was honeycomb ice-cream. Jackie and I drank Hoegaarden, and Becky drank some of the madiran.
Before returning home to Emsworth, our daughter showed us how to access the internet on our smart TV which is cleverer than we are. This is so we can watch a particular film that I will feature when we have seen it.
