If there hadn’t been women we’d still be squatting in a cave eating raw meat, because we made civilization in order to impress our girlfriends. Orson Welles
All fall in!
This lot arrived compliments of our generous neighbour… who just happens to be a lobster fisherman. A happy surprise phone call on a Sunday morning!
They were deliciously fresh, of course. But. Still. I can help but wonder just how hungry must the first person to eat a lobster have been …. (it’s a perennial question for me.). There’s a lot of amour on those “sea bugs”.

A couple of moments of peaceful reflection in the middle of London – the self-proclaimed “capital city of the world”.

We have come to learn that beaches are living things.
In the summertime, at one of our local beaches, the sand is soft and warm and goes on forever. But in winter, it all disappears!!! It’s a little alarming the first time you experience it.
I have no idea where it goes (…maybe south…). But I do know that we can count on it to return when the weather warms up.
In the meantime, there is no shortage of exposed, beautiful, smooth beach stones. In fact, the beach is crowded with them!
This morning we woke up to find we’d received a fresh dusting of snow overnight. Pretty? Yes. But it was difficult to detect any signs of green in the landscape.
C’mon Mother Nature! March is the month of things green. For instance, Number One son’s birthday is on St Patrick’s Day, thereby painting the weekend with all things green…. Mostly an artificial green.
Its the time to plant seeds in anticipation of this years garden. Onion, tomato and pepper. But those green are months away.
So, I’m taking you back to last summer’s garden for an uplifting hit of that verdant shade.
Tonight we observe Earth Hour. Just another way to get our “Green” on.
And … last night’s dusting of snow had melted away during the day, confirming that we are on the other side of winter. Greener days are ahead!
WPC – it IS easy being green
In this instance, the road taken is the road that takes me home. Highway 103, heading south …
