Rhodie on the Heath
Weather-wise, we had a perfect day yesterday -- sunny but cool and comfortable, about 70º F. Olga and I seized the opportunity for a walk on the Heath, where we found this huge rhododendron in bloom.
Try as I might, I could not get a version of that photo with Olga alone. There were too many people walking around!
We spent a long time out, and I even played around with the timer on my camera to take some "selfies." Since I'm always behind the lens I have very few pictures of myself. Here we are, enjoying the luxurious summer grass. (And the Kong!)
Olga even managed to find a disgusting, clayey puddle in which to immerse herself. Random strangers stopped to photograph her as she frolicked in the water. And of course I had to reach in and retrieve her Kong, which disappeared beneath the surface. (Fortunately I found it right away.)
Back home, Dave and I did some gardening in the afternoon. (After bathing Olga.) Oh, and we got word that our lease will be renewed, which means we can stay put in this flat for at least another year.
(Addendum: Obviously, once again, I posted this before reading the news. If I have anything to say about last night's attacks in London -- and I'm not sure I will -- I'll get to it tomorrow.)
