not today's weather, or tomorrow's weather, but maybe yesterday's weather.

The haul

Charity shop tourism: Monday's haul in Retford, north Nottinghamshire

An old embroidered bedcover with cutwork, probably linen.

makes a good chair cover

2 1/2 meters of stripey cotton fabric: thin, good for making summer dresses.

Two poison bottles! One's already being utilised as a vase for a poppy.

It's a shame that I got a parking ticket while I was there.

Day in the life

I'm growing some veg, from left to right: potatoes, blueberries, lemon balm, tomatoes, courgettes, mint, more tomatoes, some weeds that have moved into my grown bag.

my tea, morrocan veg with black eyed beans, wholegrain cous cous and garlic bread.

We went out for a practive drive (my boyfriend is learning, and I'm 'teaching') and saw a field full of poppies.

So we stopped and he picked one to go on the kitchen table.

Summer in the country

first we laid down and looked up at the trees
then we released some seeds to the wind
then we found some crickets in a graveyard.
Coventry summer 06.

Hospital Property

This shot came out of looking too hard and too long at my plate of beans on toast.
