Went to the local country park, last evening, to see an installation soundscape and display called "Gaia". Couldn't believe how busy it was! We got there at 7.15pm and eventually got to where the thing really started at 8.55pm. It was viewed from a treetop trail; a narrow wooden structure which climbs up into trees.
Just as we reached the top of the ramp, all the lights went out. 15 minutes later the message filtered through that we all had to leave - a "technical issue'.

Lots of very unhappy children, not to mention the parents. Some people decided to push past everyone to get off. I had to pick up Poppy to avoid her being trampled on - she wasn't happy about that. Nor was I, as that put her higher up than the safety rail. Well done to the selfish people,

Anyway, I got a few photos through the trees, have to admit, the iPhone is pretty good at night shots!



Definite plus points. I can’t bear slobbery dogs. Or slobbery humans, to be honest.



Excellent. She looks full of character.


Poppy has a habit of standing and staring at me when she wants something. Just now she was sitting by the lounge door. I looked up, then back at my book. Moments later she was closer & then closer still.
I immediately thought of the angel statues in “Blink”. 😱 Now I think I’m a little bit scared of my dog. My brother said: “don’t blink or read your book”. 😂


She almost always turns away when I point the phone at her. We'd just had a long walk and I think at this point bacon was upper in her mind.


Oh she was fine; she's always happy to go to the groomer, but she's not keen on having her photo taken.


All I wanted was a nice photo after she’d been to the groomer. But no…



The lovely rose is doing its thing again.


So glad I don't live in Japan! I find 16-20 to be an acceptable temperature range. It's been mid-20s here for a few days and I'm melting.
