“Don’t Get Me In Your Picture”

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. REPEAT IF REQUIRED Our friend Sheila Knight died last week. She had been ill for some time. We will be unable to attend the funeral, but I had been asked to write a tribute. I did so this morning and e-mailed it. It will be entered in a book andContinue reading ““Don’t Get Me In Your Picture””

A Clear View

Until the rain set in this afternoon, we were able to make good headway on weeding the rose garden which, of course, had not existed at this time last year, when it was little changed from this shot of 6th June 2014.

This morning I walked to the bank at New Milton. I turned right up Lower Ashley Road and leftContinue reading “Lest We Forget”

A Second Chance

Elizabeth and Danni came over for a pub meal last night. The Plough Inn at Tiptoe, our first choice, was fully booked until 8.30, so we popped down to The Trusty Servant Inn at which there was room. Unfortunately their main oven had just ceased working, so there were a number of dishes they wereContinue reading “A Second Chance”
