Survivors from my childhood. From left to right: Toffee, Lindy-Lou, Tessie and Proteus. All squashed into the chair I used to sit on, and which recent research suggests my father made from another Utility chair.
Libby Clegg Wins her Heat
You might wonder what is so free spirited about this picture. Libby Clegg is an athlete who is visually impaired, just as all the competitors are in this heat, the Women’s 100m T12. The guy on the right in orange is her guide, Mikail Huggins. Read more about how it works on her site
The final is tonight. All four finalists run with guides. Don’t miss it. You’ll probably hear me cheering from my sofa.

NotCat plus Summer equals Very Happy. I don’t think Cecil B DeMille need have worried had I been a contemporary, but I enjoy these little home movies.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer
I thought I’d be sitting this one out, but this morning Not Cat indulged in a bit of lovefest with some broom. I am wondering what properties it has to make him behave so.
On Friday, they were like sentinels, but that didn’t last long.
Two pictures of the same rose in the garden this morning. This winter is not cold, but there is an absence of colour which makes a little rose like this one stand out and seem precious.

At our local City Garden Farm I saw this mistletoe ready to be harvested from a tree for the Christmas market.
The woman in charge explained that it was thought a magical plant in ancient times as it has no roots and seems to hang between earth and heaven.
The mistletoe is managed here, and on much lower branches than you see it growing wild. It brings some welcome income to the City Garden Farm.
This blackbird was singing in the tree outside my window.
Apologies for another cat picture, but this one sort of hits the mark.
Maybe another non-feline one later.
