Open Mic Night, Disappointing Film and Flowers

Last night, Left At The Lights went along to the Golden Lion on Gloucester Road in Bristol to play at their open mic night. I was delighted to find one of my former students now in charge of the pub, so we'll be back!
The open mic night was run by Alan, who opened the evening with a few songs. There was a real mix of acts - some excellent, some "interesting":-)
Out with Bella this morning, saw a fresh flush of bindweed flowers after the recent rain.
The rain has encouraged growth on paths and other untended areas, so they increasingly look like jungle.
We went down to the Little Theatre to see the much-lauded film, "Frances Ha". We weren't at all impressed with it and left after an hour or so - found the central charcter tediously immature (certainly didn't "fall for her") and the comparisons with Woody Allen's films are much overblown (in my humble opinion).
Went for a coffee in Wild Cafe, with their excellent rustic sign (and good decor, music and coffee).
Hmmm - Shurely shome mishtake here:-)!
The rain of earlier in the day cleared away and blue skies returned.
Another fence panel successfully installed with just one more to go. Bees really like these elegant white spikes of flowers.
These roses have survived the fence replacement.
These geraniums keep on trucking too.
These clematis looked lovely in the evening sun.
This day last year, the rain had returned in force and umbellifers in the fields responded with lots of growth.
