Another of Richard's dishes in preparation - stuffed Bream cooked in salt.  Yet another success.

Richard made some gazpacho soup. Cold soup is not normally to my liking but it was surprisingly tasty.

I took a bus ride to West Kirby but only had the briefest of walks.  This was taken from the bus as we went through Caldy.

Heather asked what Satsuma was when I mentioned it on some of the things that make me happy.  his is a Satsuma - it is a small, sweet orange-like fruit which peels easily and has no pips.  A traditional fruit at Christmas-time but now found much of the year.

Summer berries and clotted cream - I've got to be patient while the berries defrost!

Although daffodils are the principal flowers carpeting Arrowe Park at the moment it was this Spring Snowflake (Leucojum vernum) that attracted my attention.

That's where the fence post was before someone decided to hit it with their car.  Annoying.

Monday 5th April 2010

One of our neighbours has been decorating the outside of their house this week.  I've never quite decided whether I like things like this on house wallls but at least they are photogenic.

Sunday 4th April 2010

I had my first real walk since the operation.  Although satisfying it didn't really give me much to photograph.  This distamt Rook was one of the few things moving under the cloudy sky.

Saturday 3rd April 2010

Even though it's now April the Beech hedge still has it's leaves from last year.
