Today’s photos were taken from the balcony on my Powershot with its long zoom. Spring turned to summertime with the clocks changing at the weekend, and now every clock in the house says a different time. They were falling behind or ahead anyway, so now’s a good time to go around and bring them up to date. A little job for later today. The swallows are back, some of them, I’ve seen a blackbird, plenty of pigeons and sparrows and we heard the owl the other night. The chickens who live up the road at the bins are wandering further afield and were heard outside our gate the other day, and as you can see, the plants are blooming and new leaves growing. Definitely spring-like, with the temperature up to 20 degrees when it’s not too cloudy or wet, and today has dawned crisp and clear.

I must thank whoever it was in the world who bought nine of my books over the weekend. Clearly, someone intends to do a lot of reading over the next few months. That mention was basically an excuse to remind everyone that my books are available on Kindle, ready for instant delivery. You can find the full list on my author page.
