Look, and Look Out!
Today, just a few recent photos from my iPhone!
First, Olga pauses next to some graffiti in Billy Fury Way on Sunday morning. She's never very happy about pausing for a picture, but she tolerates me.
In case you doubted me about the rapidity of the snow melt, here's our back garden on Sunday morning, after I propped up the flattened daffodils. The tiny bit of snow in the flower bed in the foreground lasted only an hour or so beyond when I took the photo. Miraculously, it looks like all our plants survived, though I guess we won't know for sure until things start growing again.
This was a definite casualty of the storm -- a car parked not far from our flat, on the opposite side of the street from an intersection. Clearly someone slid right through the snowy intersection and crashed into it! I first noticed it Friday morning, I think. And it's still there, maybe waiting for a tow truck or insurance adjusters or something.
Yesterday I found this graffiti snake playfully painted onto some steps over the tube tracks. I wish I'd seen it when it was new!
And finally, one of my commenters mentioned not too long ago a book from 1927 called "Freddy Goes to Florida," about a group of American farm animals that travel south for the winter. Even with my personal roots in the Sunshine State, I'd never heard of it. Imagine my surprise when I found a copy in our library conference room! I'm definitely going to give it a read!
