We braved it…

Yes, we braved it as far as the deli for coffee then returned home.

Cloudy skies and rain

Today is a day of clouds and rain, chilly withal, not my kind of day at all. I had put on extra layers but still felt the cold seeping through, no doubt aided by the damp air.

The Never-Give-Up three

In Inglebert Street, we stopped to admire the Never-Give-Up tree. Despite being cut almost to the roots, it has produced an impressive number of branches covered with healthy green leaves. How will it fare during the winter and will it continuing growing when spring returns?

Even though the first drops of rain were beginning to fall, we took our coffee at a table outside the deli (might as well do so while we still can…) where Tigger took this fisheye lens photo.

Amwell Street

After coffee, we made for home. On the way, I took this photo of our “village” high street. I am sometimes tempted to call it Barber Street as it now has three men’s salons plus a hairdresser’s which also cuts men’s hair. It is a pleasant street though you couldn’t do your regular shopping here as all the shops are specialty shops of one kind or another and some seem permanently closed, perhaps doing their business online or by appointment.

Squirrel with apple

In Claremont Square we met a squirrel who had found an apple. We stopped to watch how he tackled it until a thoughtless passer-by disturbed him. Though he returned to the apple briefly afterwards, he seemed to have lost interest in it. Perhaps apples are not to his taste, something I understand as I am not keen on them myself.

We are promised better weather tomorrow. Let’s hope that promise is kept.
