At this time of year, early in the mornings, the sun gets in doors it never usually darkens.

Here it tickles this orchid with its early rays

This is why we invented paint. This is why we don't leave stuff outdoors.

Next week

This is my imaginary friend.

He may look like a cactus but he's a real person and has a proper name and everything. 

He's called Colin and next week he is going to be prime minister.

In the future everyone will be prime minister for fifteen minutes.

What goes round..

What goes round, comes around. So they say.

Look at this, in actual Sainsburys, actual vinyl LPs for sale. Just like the old days. Real LPs. For sale in a supermarket in the 21st century.

But look at the prices. £20!


In that case I just checked the cupboard under the stairs and it seems I am a millionaire.

It is that time of year again.

I can stand in the middle of the local road just before the sun dips below the trees and see this amazing effect. Well, someone has to do it.

Don't try this at home.

Or on the M4.

What are these?

Is this some sort of green pasta?

Maybe it's Bamboo.


These are the green shoots of recovery, cut off in their prime.
