Sunny End to the Weekend



Sunshine and showers.

More rain than sun, if I’m honest.


But just look at this poppy and tell me you can’t smile!


Midweek Cheer

Now, at last, it feels like autumn. Not that I wanted the summer to end. Who needs rainy mornings, or that sudden recognition of chill at the door?

To redress the balance, here’s a beautiful orange poppy I bought in Bury St Edmunds market a few weeks ago. It’s still flowering – just.  A cheery smile as I left the house for work today!


Summer’s Last Blaze

August 31st – all too soon.

It’s raining again today: another traditional Bank Holiday washout. As a remedy for the last-day-of-August glooms, I’m prescribing some pictures: a defiant rally of blazing colour from a couple of days ago in my garden.
