The High Flying Ball

Late this morning Jackie drove me to Hockey’s Farm Shop at Gorley Lynch for brunch.

The crocheted decoration on the pillar box on Wootton Road is now a tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II;

next door, an owl keeps watch over the community notice board;

the gate of The Poplars on the corner of Middle Road opposite bears its own royal tribute.

Deer grazed in the field alongside the road to Gorley Common.

Several cricket matches were in progress.

Can you spot the high flying ball in this one at Hyde? Note the donkeys on the boundary.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s spicy chicken Jalfrezi, with pilau rice, plain paratas, and vegetable samosas, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I finished the Fleurie. Flo and Dillon will eat later.
