A VERY BRIEF GLIMPSE OF SUMMER




Yes yes, I know.... SNOW is forecast for sunday.

Before we break out the gritters though, today gave us a glimpse of the first stirrings of the silly season here in Berkshire.

Fat, pasty teenage mothers were proudly displaying thongs and tattoos whilst pushing their bairns up the pavement, the kids all broke up for ANOTHER holiday - 2 or so weeks this time, and crowded into newsagents for their alcopops and cigarettes, and I caught a young couple smoking crack behind the derelict swimming pool near the office...

AAhhhh... summer in the city!


Actually, today was the first day for some time I really didn't feel like going into work.
The weather was quite beautiful. maybe around 18c, and once again, all the insects and bugs responded magnificently.
I took all three of the above shots this morning - all can be seen in their largest, original sizes on my online photo album (click HERE), together with some explanatory text.

I still, as yet, haven't had the time or opportunity to try and take a photo or two of the office pipistrelles (TWO now, like last year), but hope to soon, when I alter shift patterns temporarily...

All that remains for me to say on this post is I hope you made the most of today, and tomorrow if you live in the south of the UK, because by monday, if you listen to the Met Office, you'll be shovelling snow off the porch, and wondering where on earth spring has gone!

The sunny weather today was great... and yes I did make the most of it and spent most of the afternoon running round the garden with my camera.

I love the photos, especially the dandelion head... stunning.

I can't believe the standard of your photos now... you obviously have "an eye" for a picture.
