Beatties' Plaque

Blue plaque marking the founding of Beatties department store. The present owners wanted to change the name to show their 'corporate image' but Wulfrunians would have none of it. Beatties it was, is now and ever will be.

Sheltered Spot


This sheltered area in my garden is where I sit with a mug of coffee after a morning's gardening. The winter Iris are still flowering and the Camellia is starting to open.

Frog


The frogs have at last arrived in my pool, later than usual this year, I usually see them at the end of February. Only one was brave enough to pop up for a photo.

Eclipse


Tried to capture the partial eclipse of the sun this morning, not very successfully.

The camera also hasn't captured the eerie  light when the eclipse was at its maximum.

Hole in the Road 2

The hole has now been filled but judging by the rusty pipes which have been removed, the replacements were none too soon.

It may be the first day of spring, meteorologically speaking but we've had flurries of  snow this morning and Jack Frost has decorated the conservatory windows.

Theme Day, Ageing.

The saxon column in St. Peter's gardens has been ageing
  since 985 AD and is probably good for a few more centuries.
