Camera Talk - part 2

 Some pics from today's walk up to Pen y Fan. A short break in the weather gave us spectacular views across the Brecons. We stood and watched as the clouds swept in over the hills below, magical. Every other time we've been it's been completely clagged in, so today was a real bonus.

 Floss enjoying the view from Pen y Fan

I've always struggled to understand how anyone, who lives in an urban or suburban environment , would let their cats roam freely on the streets. I've seen too many casualties on our busy roads of cats that had used up their nine lives! 

As a dog owner I'm obliged by the law to have my dog under control at all times. Even if this didn't apply I wouldn't let her roam because of the harm to which she might befall. If she was run over, stolen or harmed in any way it would be my fault and I couldn't live with that thought.

Fantastic program. Next time we're at Lullingstone we will have a ball of string at hand. There are some fabulous old oaks there to measure. 

🎄 Happy Christmas to you all 🎄

 Clear and frosty this morning, creating a lovely white covering to the fields.

Thomson & Morgan seed catalogue

I'm not sure if I would class a ' requested' catalogue as junk mail? While it may be possible to access the same info online, not everyone, myself included, likes to do it that way.

Unwarranted junk mail is an issue that should be addressed but I would be very disappointed to see hard copies disappear for reference purposes.

Are you sure it's not dog poo? It only takes one inconsiderate owner, that allows their dog to foul without clearing up afterwards. Trying to be a considerate dog owner it's the one thing that really annoys me. 

Plant abuse !!

The way my local Lidl look after their plants, the glitter is probably there just to cover up dead plants.

I don't use T& M anymore but I've never had to pay for a catalogue. I get a few sent through every year from various companies all free of charge.

Personally I prefer hardcopy to online when it comes to catalogues and instruction manuals.
