When Jude asked “What edible greens can you find in your world?” I did a mental inventory of the veggie compartment in my fridge. One zucchini (or courgette, if you prefer) and one cucumber was the grand total; not even a lime! I must admit I quite like the feature photo, which reminds me of the side of a whale that’s been battered and scarred in some rough encounters. (okay, a green whale)
(And, woo hoo!, some experimentation and some tips from helpful followers revealed that clicking on the number of posts under ‘At a Glance’ in my dashboard will take me to the old Posts page, where the dropdown choice of Block and Classic for Add New still exists. Happy day. 🙂 Take that, evil block editor!! )
Here in Sydney, we are facing days of heavy rain. Summer never really happened, due to the rain (thanks La Niña). Now it’s autumn, and the rain seems to have increased. We shall all soon float away! Sitting on my sofa today, in the early evening, I realised that this small pot of cyclamen on my windowsill provided the only colour in a grey, grey world.
(ps: WordPress, if you are eavesdropping on people’s posts – I HATE this block editor and the associated interface that you are now forcing me to use!!!)
Very few people react with glee to the idea of climbing up the mast on a tall ship. I certainly never did! Looking at these photos, it seems like a mad thing to do.
In the photo below, you don’t get a sense of the height but you do get a sense of the scale.
Not happy with heights? Nah! These crew members going aloft on Tenacious have already had four weeks to get used to it, sailing from Bermuda to Southampton.
