Lumiere London

Lumiere London took place around the Capital weekend; this is not to be confused with Diwali because there was no curry to be found down in Regents Street.  Sadly.

The various exhibitions dotted about town were a genuine delight; I also thought it was very cool to see a very strong showing from indigenous Londoners amongst the massive crowds who had turned up for a mooch.

Must have been too cold for the Russians!?

The exhibits varied greatly; elaborate projections onto buildings, a garden of light in Leicester Square and an island of household rubbish in Trafalgar square were all very thought provoking.

I think my favourite ‘piece’ was the CGI elephant on the giant LCD screen; it looked so realistic and the various elephant noises that boomed out the speakers gave it a presence that I did not expect!

Check out ma mad tings!!

Mum’s Garden

Summer is in full swing, well, until next week when the weather is meant to get crap again!

Thought I’d put up a little gallery of Mum’s garden; so many of the flowers are in bloom and the climbers are really starting to get a hold on the trellises that are dotted around the place.

Paul, my Sisters fella, has done a grand job with the decking and all the woodwork that he has done; I have done my part, having potted and bedded a good deal of the plants and climbers you can see in the gallery below.  Replanting the hydrangeas took some doing let me tell you!

Forgot how much I loved to garden, I often helped my Nan when I was a kid (she was a gardening genius) and would often do the same with Mum (clearly followed in her footsteps).  It is a simple pleasure?

We still have to move bits around and I also have to assemble and position my KILLER PIT BBQ!  But for now, here you go.
