Mike probably got run down by some crazy chick jumping off the bus and walking around with a camera in front of her face.

Argh - too true, too true! I just hope he wasn't the man who randomly called me a cunt because we walked into eachother! (sans camera)

Mike I have to say I loved Leicester.
I was unhappy there, but not because of the city.
I did maintain she was most beautiful from the first floor up - a gorgeous concoction of red brick Victoriana and overwrought decoratin. And who looks at the fire when stoking the mantlepiece.... oh damn, wrong way round!

I have a Leicester thread here.

I'd be happy for you to post an alternative Leicester thread of course - but I doubt you want to give that much time and attention to a negative Anyway, it's lovely. Housing is cheaper, everywhere is walking distance, there are so many bars and restaurants - at near "Northern" prices, the public tranport system is great and people look at you and speak to you in queues! Come back to Leicester after a few weeks in London and you'll feel blessed, I promise.

This thread has brought back a few memories. I know Aylesbury quite well, many of my family come from Aston Clinton, just outside of Aylesbury. This photo is from a visit back to the area last year. Aylesbury is somewhere in the distance. It is taken from Coombe Hill overlooking Aylesbury Vale.

Oh lovely, lovely!
No that's a view I'm familiar with. Thank you.

I once rented a flat in Aston Clinton. I got the bus (or walked) up the hill into Tring many times.

Yes, I was positively perplexed by the preponderance of peas, personally. (whew!) Seems like that's the most popular 'veg' they have -- odd, since in my house they're considered a starch, not a veggie at all!

I used to have this British guy as a cow orker, and he would bring peas in for lunch. Just eat them out of a tupperware container. I'd never seen anyone else do that before, or since. Not every day, but often.

Frozen, canned, or fresh?

Never mind. Different thread.

I've taken some pictures to document the Spring here for you. The Easter weekend seems an appropriate time to post them.

Cherry blossoms close to my home.
My walk to the day care unit.

Still walking in - the turn off down beside the prison walls.
The prison walls from the unit.

Horse Chestnut Spring

Now a series of a horse chestnut tree in the grounds.
I love horse chestnuts. They have fat and sticky buds, the earliest and freshest green leaves, then flowers like candles, they are huge threshing castles all summer then herald autumn by turning brown first of all the trees, then hand out conkers!

These were all taken on separate days. Spring creeps up on you, you know!

I'll continue the sequence tomorrow when I'm back there, and might even pop back at key points even after I'm discharged.

A couple more of my horse chestnut.
I swear I'm going to go back and take more pics as the year goes by. It's allegorical for me now.

The first two are a couple of days apart.
