You didn't follow that up with a Pelican Curry did you? Delicious I'm told but the bill is enormous.

Over to Mick for something even worse than that.....

Does 'picture of the day' have to be a specific day? Or can it be any day?

Any day any time, no threshold of interestingness, or standard of photography as many of my contributions testify.

My most recent ones are from Gairloch on a family holiday in the early 1970's :-D

So just lob in anything you fancy Derek :-D

This is a nice place to stop off at 'Sleights' on the Pickering to Whitby road, down to the bottom of the hill, over the bridge, turn right and there is a garden centre there. The café is on the river bank and on the other side is the York moors railway. They do super prawn sandwiches. We were there on Monday.

Used to go canoeing past that garden center, which was just a tea room at the time.

Ta. I thought that was the case. One a day (if I can remember to). For a while. They will be odd.

Young Ladies in Hansom cabs alone were considered members of the 'oldest profession'.

It's an old model and not one I built, though I did do some light renovation by replacing the missing reigns and drivers whip.

Spotted this in February, just a bit of stick that I thought I had put in as a marker for something.
It then grew a couple of leaves.
Then there was another behind it.
I was told to get rid of it ASAP as it was an Ash tree sapling.

Pulled one out but let this one grow to see what it turned in to.
Took a photo on the SLR then cleverly deleted it.
Too sunny now and taken blind as I couldn't see the screen on the phone.

Things are moving fast with all this sun and rain so I thought a stroll round the garden was called for:

Sound advice. They will grow as big as Oaks in time. Roots will undermine foundations and any structural damage may invalidate insurance.

A series of a build for a shop window display. All from scrap cardboard.

I did warn you . . .

We're losing Ash trees at a phenomenal rate down here due to Ash Dieback. Whole woodlands on the Downs are being felled to try and slow the spread, maximize the income, and make the areas safer whilst they can. As a very general rule and sweeping statement, you've got about 18 months from first sign of infection on a mature tree until it gets a bit sketchy for an arborist to climb them to section them down. Not a problem out in the wilds, a bit of a problem in built up areas 8-[
Sadly no longer a C5 owner :(
