A retro-feel to the garden today…

Day 2 of the Bac exams for my son, who has been labouring away with revision for what seems like ages, so not much time today what with fetching and carrying, cooking a lunch (well!) and generally doing domestic backup. But, in the garden this morning with my Ipad, and the combinations of bright sunshine and probably lesser photographic quality- not that I’m Lord Snowden you understand- seemed to me to bring a retro-feel to the images, bit 60s tablecloth.  I rather liked it.

and I don’t know what the strange onion-y thing is, below, but I am fond of it- comes up, looks a bit alien, and does no harm, and then goes away.
