Sunset,  Church Hill, Washingborough, near Lincoln

Yesterday, as I walked up Church Hill, I caught a magnificent sunset.

I am pleased the same today.

Hard frost in the morning

Third day of hard frost in the morning.

Fallen leaves

December 11, 2016

Yesterday and today, raking up fallen leaves.

Last night it rained, making the leaves wet and heavy and much harder work.

But best time to rake up, as leaves are wet and sodden and rot down.

If dry, they blow all over in the wind.

Then when bored, the dog went in and closed the window.

Six horses, numerous routes taken, including stunning views over Konnos Bay.

First time out taken on a lead to assess riding ability.

Moonshine Ranch is located off Protaras to Cape Greco Road at Melissonas Hill, not far from Konnos Bay, and on edge of Cape Greco National Park.

On Sunday in Brighton, walking down from Brighton Station to Grocer and Grain on my way to the seafront, I came across passion flowers growing on a garden wall.

I only noticed them because a man was photographing them.

I asked was it his garden? He said no. He was passing by and they caught his eye.

He did not know what they were. I said passion flower. I used to see them growing in Neal’s yard in Covent Garden.

I said I was on my way to the seafront, but first Grocer and Grain. I recommended he too visited Grocer and Grain.
