Day 284 – A Last Rose…

The cold wet weather that we came back to yesterday is certainly impacting on the garden – there are fallen leaves everywhere and most of the perennial plants have finished flowering and are looking very sad. The roses usually last until the first hard frosts, and this beautiful blossom stood out from the yellowing plants around it. Probably the last we can expect this year though…

Day 283 – The Aliens Are Coming…

Well, not really – we arrived back at Heathrow Terminal 5 tonight, and these are the lights in the ceiling of the baggage claim area. They look better in mono than colour…

Day 279 – Blue Is The Colour…

I’ve seen lots of photos of Greece with the blue or white colour of church roofs, but I was still surprised at just how vibrant the colours are when set against a clear blue sky. This is another church in Fira, the main city in Santorini.

Day 277 – Blue On Blue…

One thing that Greece (and the Greek islands) is famous for are the little churches with their blue roofs. It’s hard to travel more than a few yards in any small town without coming across one. Set against the almost permanent blue sky, they make an attractive picture.

Day 216 – A British Summer…

After our hot and sunny week in Ibiza, we were not unhappy at the prospect of some cooler weather back home. What we didn’t plan on was thunderstorms and torrential rain this afternoon! Fortunately it didn’t last long, and we can expect some kinder weather next week.
