    That looks startlingly Dutch - it really wouldn't be out of place on the other side of the North Sea.

    We have many the same. Very attractive. I must go into town and up to the street where the houses have similar decorative frontages.

    Do't give them too much credit. They'll be blowing their own trumpet soon.

    Not seen a butterfly do this before, but this small skipper just sat on this scabious flower beating its wings vigourously. As this was early evening it's unlikely to be a mating thing.

    Spreading its pheromones around?

    This caught my eye as I was walking along Princes Street the other day!

    Not so much interesting, but intriguing. Manchester Piccadilly had quite a large collection of train spotters out today, taking photos and writing the numbers down in their books. Why? It is totally beyond me. This train was like train porn to them for some reason, they got all excited. They then waved at train drivers. Not just the kids but the adults too. Strange.

    Hmm, a Class 66 diesel loco, low number (50 out of nearly 500 built), one of the named ones ("EWS Energy"). Otherwise, no idea why they were so interested. Pulling an interesting cargo? Doing a rail-tour of some sort? Doesn't normally work in the North?

    No idea to any of the above. To me it is a train, albeit purple and yellow.

    Fair enough. We get lots of them down here - in all the liveries...

    All pulling freight, from what I've seen.

    The foreign ones can look quite strange to our eyes...

    Well, the Class 66 is foreign, sort of. Well, American design and it has foreign 'cousins'. Designed for use over here, it got further developed for use in forrin parts. As the EMD Class 66.

    You've been kidding us, Nige. You're far more knowledgeable about trains than you were admitting. ;) :D

    I am becoming a bit of a spotter. Here is blue train 534. I think this driver got lost though, driving on the bloody pavement. It was a bit too warm for my anorak though.

    More and more of the agricultural equipment that passes along our roads down here in Devon looks as if it belongs to the Army. This outfit might just have come off the set of a war film in its green paint!
