No Farmers’ Market this morning, so I had to look closer to home to take a flower picture. Since my neighbour in the back hacked down all of the greenery on “his” side of the fence, I added clumps of bamboo sticks and am training some morning glories to fill them in. I love their symmetry, which you can see even in the bud stage.
I was reading the Guardian this morning and there was a feature on great cottages for rent. Of course, I chose the most unusual one, a former dovecot, called The Ducket. It is on the coast in Northumberland, England and sleeps two. It comes with wi-fi and a library. It is close to Lindisfarne Castle, the Northumberland coastline and Cheviot Hills. Best of all it rents for £450 per week, which is about $700! Such a deal!
