I couldn't resist another gazania picture -- this one with a hoverfly.
Yesterday was one of those blessed work days that just seem to vanish. I was so busy that mid-afternoon rolled around quickly and smoothly, and before I knew it, it was time to go home. I got a lot done, mainly contacting parents who left the school with our materials.
As Dave and I walked home on Finchley Road, we found ourselves behind a woman wearing a shirt that said this:
I have no idea what this means. Is she a conspiracist, or is she making fun of conspiracists?
Speaking of conspiracies, these stickers appeared on signs along our street. (To be fair, the signs are portable, and maybe the stickers were affixed elsewhere and simply arrived with the signs. My neighbors aren't necessarily responsible!) I still can't believe some people think 5G technology is the source of our latest microbial woes.
Here's some happy garden news. Years ago we planted a sedum, and it's never done all that well. In fact, we thought it had died. Imagine my surprise when I found it blooming at the edge of the flower bed. I wouldn't say it's prospering, but it's hanging in there!
Finally, I got some more pictures of Olga on her daily walks from Francisco, her dog walker. Here she is with her pals. I don't know where Francisco is from, but I assume he's of Iberian extraction -- doesn't he look just like a subject in a Velasquez painting? All he needs is a sword and a hat with a plume.
Pictures like this, although cute, always make me wince. Olga does love a good stick. Unfortunately, depending on how much of it she ingests, they don't always love her.
