As we head in to Jubilee weekend, I think the makers of bunting have had a good month.
My daughter was given these seeds by her gran, and sure enough, something resembling a 4-leaf clover is growing. I don’t suppose it really counts as lucky if you’ve relied upon genetic modification.
You see, I managed to avoid calling this “The Color Purple”. On the Ou Campus. Flowers which are purple and which I don’t know the name of.
Using my dad’s reading magnifying glass on this flower. And no, I didn’t burn it. Although that did used to be fun I remember…
I favour the Gu Gel for energy in long runs, whereas my wife favours the Nakd bar (admittedly, her long runs are a lot longer than mine). We have enough to start up our own sports energy store.
Took my daughter riding at Rockwood stables again today. Weather was lovely. The stables own the ridge to the right, [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_yr_Allt]Craig Yr Allt[/url], and this is looking towards Garth.
Went for a very pleasant run round Caerphilly Mountain in the sunshine. There is an empty quarry which looks very much like it would feature in an episode of Doctor Who as some alien planet. And then they’d add some colour tinge to it, just so you know it’s not earth. So this is my bid as a locations finder.
I was in Amsterdam today, for a board of examiners tomorrow. I had a spare couple of hours, so I went to the Rijksmuseum, and took in some Rembrandts and Vermeers. In the gift shop they had every conceivable piece of merchandising – mugs, puzzles, fridge magnets, bookmarks, rubiks cubes, and this Nightwatch umbrella. I mean, really?
These blue tits were nesting in this post. Feeding chicks is a non-stop business, I watched two of them fly in and out continually for about five minutes. I managed to catch this one on exit, by having the camera on sports mode and taking about 100 photos. Even then, he was gone in the next photo, they’re so fast. I wonder if anyone thought I was odd, standing there photographing an old post on sports mode…
