A Fan Of Harry Potter

On another fine spring morning I took a walk to Shorefield Country Park and back. Before arriving at the end of the back drive I photographed a few tulips and bunches of daffodils. A cerulean Christchurch Bay could be seen from the entrance to Roger Cobb’s top field on Downton Lane. Further down the road,Continue reading “A Fan Of Harry Potter”

Water Under The Bridge

Today’s weather pattern was again that of sunshine and showers. This morning Margery and Paul visited to return my copy of “Framley Parsonage’ and to borrow “Can He Forgive Her?” and “The Last Chronicle of Barset”.

When we carry out such a shop I usually trot off in search of some items and return to Jackie who is loading the trolley in some other part of the store. It is normally not difficultContinue reading “A Rookery”
