Just a quick snapshot of some tulips I picked up at Tesco. They're very springy, aren't they?
Pam arrived yesterday, and we spent the afternoon walking all the way around Hyde Park. Fortunately, she's as much of a wanderer as I am. She got to see most of the sights in the vicinity, and today we're going down to the Thames to walk the riverfront. Because she's not here very long, we're trying to see all that we comfortably can. Fortunately the weather has cooperated. (The rain that was forecast for this week has turned out to be a shower or two in an otherwise sunny day, rather than a persistent rain -- so I've had a lot more outdoor time than I thought I might.)
Last night Dave made dinner. Pam hadn't met Dave yet, so I'm glad they finally had an opportunity to connect! It's so funny -- I've been with Dave three years now, but many of my old friends haven't met him, because they're scattered around the country. I guess that's one advantage to a formal wedding, rather than a tiny simple ceremony like we had -- everyone gets together. Oh well -- we're taking our time with introductions!
