Flowers, Fruit and Film

A day busy in the house getting ready for going to Greece, so I didn't get to taking photographs until I took Bella out for a walk this afternoon. Yet another helicopter overhead.
Ivy flowers swelling up and in profusion. 
You know it's Autumn when you see these flowers poking out in the undergrowth. 
Lovely white roses in a neighbour's front garden. 
Cosmos and verbena bonariensis in another front garden. 
Another sign of Autumn - complete with carrier bags for the opportunist passer by. 
These were round the corner, and quite tasty eating apples. 
The pigeons were wheeling their customary perch - must have been coming up to feeding time. 
Woodhenge - or the remains of some ill-advised, closely-planted leylandii? 
A jolly stand of sunflowers. 
These dahlias looked quite unreal. 
Lots of lavender where I walked, with the occasional bee buzzing about for their nectar. 
I walked along a private road edged by land for the use of residents only - an unused area overlooked by former council housing 
Earlier today, Su was happily rediscovering her pointing skills on the back wall. 
This was before she rediscovered her happiness at deconstruction by reconfiguring the little wall alongside our back steps. 
This evening we went to the Little Theatre at Komedia, where I enjoyed the old architecture.
The old detailing of the cinema showed up well with the blue lighting. 
We went to see a preview screening of Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine", an enjoyable film and a tour de force by Cate Blanchett - as usual with Woody Allen, a great cast.
This day a year ago, we walked up to St George's church on the way to Nimborio - a favourite spot.
