MoT, Gothic Details, Numberplates & The Inevitable Flower Pics

Took the van down to Larkhall Garage for a service and MoT. It's its first visit there in over a year and nothing major needed fixing - I'll get it back on Monday and roadworthy for another year! That's the van with its lights on in the garage.
Seen on a car window. I've not heard of this campaign before - Rivers Access Campaign is organised by Canoe England but is not aimed just at canoeists, but anyone who thinks that everybody should have a right of access to rivers. What many of us probably assumed the so-called right-to-roam legislation already allowed for…
The sun struggled to come out for most of the day.
Walking back home past St Saviours Church, I took time to study the Gothic detail of this doorway.
The church's foundation stone.
Flowers on every bush and tree at the moment, it seems.
Bella sniffed every corner, bush and wall on the way back up the hill - it was a long, slow ascent.
Magnolia flowers already going over on this tree.
Lovely detail on this one.
Bob came over to play some music, which Bella seemed to really enjoy - at last, a fan! Later on, we all went out for a walk in the brief but welcome afternoon sun. Showed this neighbour's hyacinths off well.
The carving in the terrace up the hill is finished and painted - looks good.
Looking out over to Little Solsbury - blue skies for a while!
Along Charlcombe Lane, this house conversion is finally getting a neo-brutalist finish to its back steps after a couple of years of bare breeze blocks.
Personalised numberplate interlude #1.
Liked this logo for R LeHuray electrical contractors - packed lots of detail in!
Personalised numberplate interlude #3.
On Richmond Terrace, a tree with peeling bark like another I've seen elsewhere on Mount Beacon.
Liked this garden sculpture and the surrounding fritillaries.
Clematis coming out.
Now, I can honestly say I've never seen one of these on the front of a Vauxhall van - or any other vehicle!
This day a year ago, croci were still going strong and the weather was still cold, but brighter.
