Is this more evidence that things are going haywire in climate? Daffodils, snowdrops, crocuses and hyacinths are all pushing up above ground. One daffodil is 5 inches high already. We haven’t had a frost here yet and it is the 26 November 2006.
Summer is long gone but I found this picture of a French visitor from last August. As our summers get hotter due to climate change, we are attracting more and more hot (and cold) weather visitors.
I hope you like Mike’s work. This one is at the top of the steps into St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square. It is amazingly simple and was commissioned for the Millenium in 2000. “And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us” St. John 1, 1:14

The Pre-Picassan Brotherhood by Laura Alport …………………………………………………………We have all been taught in our art history classes that the great subjects have been exhausted, that there is “nothing new under […]

We English talk about the weather, that’s because we have an awful lot of it.My son is doing “Photography” and here is something he found in the pony’s field. We had a furniture industry in the 18th and 19th century here so there are lots of Wall nut trees around still.
I discovered the site, quite amazing photos of sculpture in the Louvre. Thank you Richard (Higgins) for sharing them with the world. If you keep clicking you get biger and biger downloads. http://higginsoft.smugmug.com/gallery/548964/1/25960497.
