The Fingers of Tutankhamun
Olga and I went for a walk to the cemetery yesterday morning, and I noticed they've been mowing. I think the cemetery people try to strike a balance between encouraging wildlife and keeping things tidy, but I don't know why they mow in the middle of summer, rather than letting the long grass stay through the season for the benefit of insects. They did at least leave the ragwort, in case (I assume) any cinnabar moths have laid their eggs on it.
I took this picture on my iPhone, which seems as good a reason as any to post another round of random iPhone pictures!
I love this mosaic Welsh dragon on the floor of the entrance to a dry cleaner's around the corner. Even the dragon wants social distance.
This discarded birthday card made me laugh!
King Tutankhamun's fingers?
An interesting box discarded outside a pharmacy. Quite a supply of meds, there!
Some nice slanting summer-afternoon light on our living room wall.
Remember the tree-in-a-bag? Well, it has remained in a bag, and not only leafed out but produced apples! Apparently it's perfectly happy to grow that way, at least for now. Soon after I took this photo someone picked the fruit.
This vase sits in the window of a nearby home-builder's office. I dig it. If I found it at a flea market I'd buy it.
A closed shop from the days of yore. Funny how they painted out the word "Hollywood" but they left behind the videos and dvds? (Neither of which should have apostrophes, I'm pretty sure.)
And finally, a weirdly specific delivery van on the high street. Avocados are trendy, but I'm surprised there's sufficient demand to require their own van!
