Where and when do you think it was made, and for precisely what purpose. No prizes and very little kudos awarded.

This is a new picture - last year's Ipomia or Morning Glory. It was profuse. This years at has flowered , but not generously - about a dozen flowers - so far. . I am using last years photograph to demonstrate the difference between last years flowering and this - which is not nearly so good. Could anyone who has received this picture acknowledge the fact please.

I have East Anglia's senior computer expert present with me, and we are making determined efforts to break back into my blog . Pay attention now! This is a Mystery object. If you concentrate hard you should be able to tell me exactly what this is - general knowledge and reasoning come into this. You should be able to tell my what this is for, what it is made of, and the year it was made. If you are not sure, then spuffle (a Norfolk term).

This little bundle of coloured fluff has been haunting the garden, tamely scrounging for crumbs, for about a week now, and has almost NO fear of humans at all. He will come within a couple of feet of Ann or meself, provided he is convinced we are carrying edible offerings for him.

Took above photograph this morning, of a pair of green finches. Haven't seen many of these this spring, so it was good to see these two.
Above item is blacksmith- made of wrought iron. It was last used in the mid 1950s, and very effective it was, too.
Can you tell me when it was made, roughly where, and for what exact purpose ?????

Mystery Object. What it is, and what it was made for are reasonably obvious (but please state the obvious). It is to serve a specific purpose. When and where was it made? The item and its action are very rare - so much so that it has never (in my opinion) been satisfactorily named. Good guessing, especially from Crowbard, who has seen the item a good many times over the last forty years or so.

Early this morning father blackbird is still feeding his brood.
The two above photos show the annual Blog Party held at Zoe's lovely home just over the border in Norfolk. It was, as always, a lovely party; this time with a strong element of a garden party, largely due to the perfect weather. I think there were about seventeen or eighteen of us (or as Zoe put it - slightly more select than usual - or smaller). Whatever - it was, as always, great fun, and enjoyed by all. Zoe says it is the SEVENTH Annual Blog Party; and I say "Long may it continue".
And we all say :- Many Thanks Zoe.

View of the West front of Ely Cathedral, and the old Bishop's Palace, Ely, taken last Monday, when Ann, her three siblings and their partners met up at the Old Fire Engine House, in Ely, for lunch. The lunch was as good as it always is at this establishment, and a good, sociable time was had by all. A virtue of this establishment that I've not mentioned before is that if we've booked a table, and (given the distances involved - turn up early, coffee is served (on the house) until all the others get there). It's these little touches, that all the older customers are aware of, that makes this such a popular house of refreshment. Should stress, too, that Ann and I have been using this restaurant for somewhere between forty and fifty years, and have invariably enjoyed it. A lovely day out , as always.
