I never did finish that last post. Nevermind.
I thought I'd write a garden post. I haven't written one in ages largely because I've neglected my poor garden a bit this year. I never got round to sowing any flower seeds at all so the only ones I've had are self seeded or perenials. The vegetables I did get round to planting have struggled with the long harsh winter followed by the hot, dry summer we've been having. Despite my neglect and the weather my garden has, as ever, managed to surprise me. I had my first water lily flower in the pond this year.

Yesterday I finally got out to go and take some photographs for the first time in over three weeks. I ended up taking loads of pictures to compensate. I’ll warn you now this post has a lot of pictures under the cut.
Dave and I went to Happisburgh, a village on the Norfolk coast not far from where I live. We stopped off at the lighthouse first so I could get a picture of it:

Off to London tomorow. I'm hoping to take some good pictures for the Open Studios without getting arrested in the process. I should be back by Friday evening.
I succumbed and signed up to twitter. I think I may regret it.
... comes to you with the letter T and this 1903 version of Alice in Wonderland:

See you soon.
We didn't know about the ladybird invasion before we decided to go for a walk along the beach. The picture above was only one I took that doesn't have ladybirds in it. They got everywhere. I won't be too disappointed if I don't see another one for quite some time.
