Garden Flowers

Although we have had a little rain, our flowers are doing well. The photo shows the flowers on one of our patios. They need regular watering!

Website Cookies

Rant time! 

If in the EU we have new data protection measures under the GDPR banner. Now, certainly in the EU, we have to click to accept website cookies. No doubt someone, somewhere thought this a "good idea". 

What happens? Most of us just click "accept" or similar and never read the text. It totally fails. This is stupidity and bureaucracy gone stark raving mad! It sickens me and achieves nothing.

Corpus Clock

One of the most photographed things in Cambridge must be the odd clock outside Corpus Christi college.

Every time I walk past it in the summer there are loads of visitors taking photos.

Interesting Clouds

Late yesterday, we had some interesting clouds high up over "our" windmill.  I think they may be fribatus clouds, which are a form of cirrus clouds, although I am no expert and stand to be corrected.

Frog or Toad?

Today we went to Oxburgh Hall (National Trust) and then on to Gooderstone Water Gardens where we saw this little fellow. Pretty sure it is a frog and not a toad, but I am hopeless! 


Both places are in Norfolk, UK.

Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK

Bury St Edmunds has a great market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It is a fine East Anglian place. We enjoy going there.  Often fruit and vegetables are as good in the market as in the supermarkets and far cheaper.

There is a small museum in the market square (at the back of the photo) called Moyses Hall in what is, I think, the oldest building there.

Gilbert and Sullivan

Every year a local village stages a Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera in a barn. They are always very good. This year they staged "The Grand Duke". This was a work new to me. As yet, they have still to announce what they will be doing next June.
