At the end of last week we were thinking of going away this week, because of the weather forecast, but by Saturday the forecast was changing again and we decided not to risk it. I’m glad we didn’t go as yesterday and today is grey, overcast, gloomy and not at all warm.

During the weekend, before the sun disappeared, Amanda photographed another butterfly in the garden. This time it was a Red Admiral. That name is actually a corruption of the original Victorian name of ‘The Red Admirable’.

I don’t know if anyone has actually noticed but putting Smilies in your comments is now very much easier.

Also I have made two additions on the Wells pages. Next to the picture of the clock in Wells Cathedral is a link to a short video sequence of the clock in action and next to the picture of the swans on the Bishop’s Palace moat is another short video sequence of the swans doing their thing. Both sequences are courtesy of that famous film producer ‘Amanda’. :)
