Tax Return, Flowers and Vans

Took the van down to the garage this morning, on the way spotting this abandoned top - sparkly material woven in there, so I guess it's from last night.
Spent the morning sorting out my tax return (deep joy) and then took Bella out for a stroll.  Spotted this old Morris 8 (made in 1946 apparently) being worked on by my neighbour, who was putting a new clutch in it.
It's a jungle out there at the back of this terrace! 
So that's put an end to any idea of using this as a garage then! This is being used as a recording studio, so a solid wall makes more sense. 
These foxgloves are very happy with the mixture of sun and rain they've been getting. 
I'm sure that "S" is slipping further off this road sign. 
On the pavement... 
 ...and further along. I guess they'll dig facing in different directions?
This is the size of camper we dream about. But where to park it, and what about the fuel consumption and how would I get it into the supermarket car park?:-)! 
The tennis club wall is finally being fixed. 
Three colours of valerian at once. 
Are these bars to keep them in or us out? 
 Lots of growth out of this old wall
Bella missed this tennis ball (but she found another one a bit further along the walk). 
Went down to get the van, which had been checked over after the major work on it from before we went to Symi.  All is well - will check it out with a bit of a jaunt soon. Spotted these sambuca flowers on the way down to Larkhall.
This day a year ago, the weather was a mix of sunshine and rain - the flowers loved it, including these nettles.
