Sofa-Bound iPhone Catch-Up Post
Given that we finally had some much-needed rain, I spent the entire day indoors yesterday. On the couch. With the dog. Which means I have no news, other than another collection of backlogged iPhone photos!
First, someone added to the NHS poster-poem on Finchley Road. I think the addition is actually a subtraction.
At first I thought this was a big gay bulldozer, festooned with rainbows. But then I realized it's probably a tribute to the NHS. (Rainbows have become the symbol of gratitude in the coronavirus crisis -- as in, there's a rainbow after a storm.)
I'm always impressed with this wisteria, which I've photographed in years past. It was looking good again as usual.
And look at this nasturtium, blooming like crazy so early in the season!
I've been seeing a lot of signs reminding people to take our lockdown seriously. (In case you can't read it, this one says "Stay safe, stay home.")
I wonder what it means to "zeal your zest"? This place didn't endear itself to neighbors when it was allegedly the site of a large gathering the night before our lockdown was announced. People were too busy "zealing their zests" to be concerned, I guess.
I don't know if you can tell, but this little car has three wheels! I don't remember seeing anything like it before. It's called a Reliant Robin. Apparently it's made of fiberglass.
Proselytizing flowerpots and a stuffed lion make an intriguing front garden display.
I've heard of Sundance, but Raindance is a new one on me. Apparently it's kind of a big deal. Not enough to make someone want to keep this tote bag, though.
Fun with shadows!
And finally, a book I found abandoned on a bench in the cemetery. "The book is composed of five sections addressing key aspects of the most cited author in psychoanalytic literature after Freud," according to the Wiley Online Library. Kind of intense for light cemetery reading, don't you think? (I left it there.)
