Cakes, Crescents and Flowers

Out with Bella this morning, spotted this hat on the pavement.
Spent some time helping a friend buy and set up an iPad mini. This involved a trip to the Apple Temple Store, so I got my fix of shiny gadgets for a while. We had lunch afterwards to which Su brought delicious cakes from the French cafe in Larkhall - yum!:-)
Walked back over the golf course with Bella. The weather has started to warm up with some suggestions of sunshine. Maybe Summer has arrived?
Went past Somerset Place, which is being restored to its Grade One glories, including the gardens.
Lots of work going on with the buildings as well.
Another fine crescent - Lansdown Crescent. Looks like they will need to get the sheep back to trim the grass again soon.
A long-abandoned sock.
This wisteria goes from strength to strength and it smells divine.
A rather flamboyant peony in a neighbour's garden
We have acquired some purple loosestrife by our front door - its yellow cousin is a scourge of the Canadian prairies apparently.
The skies darkened but the rain stayed to the north of us.
This day a year ago, the weather brightened and we had Martyn and Jane round for lunch.
