Lime Lamborghini Redux
I'd like to write a meaty, newsy post this morning, but I can't bring myself to write about (or even think about) politics or the state of our western democracies. So here are some iPhone photos from the past week or two.
First, the Lime Lamborghini was back yesterday morning as I walked to work, and attracting attention from passers-by.
Down the street, the front garden of one of our neighbors is flourishing. They always have a great-looking garden. See those big white peonies? Dave planted a couple of peonies too, last weekend, so maybe we'll have our own soon.
The caretakers of the sports fields near the cemetery have stripped away all the grass. First they sprayed it with something that turned it entirely yellow and now it's all been plowed under. I suppose they're re-sodding? (That's a cricket ball lying in the trench in the foreground.)
Olga and I found interesting shadows on our walk yesterday morning.
We also found a cat! Cats are a reliable presence in this little housing estate, and they always give Olga a charge. (And she does the same for them.) Right after I took this picture it jumped into the walled garden right behind it and then over that wooden fence, none the worse for wear.
Olga and I found this chalk drawing of "Daddy" on the way to Hampstead Heath last weekend. I think he looks suspiciously like me, but I can guarantee you I have not fathered any children.
