On my way home the buzzards were teasing me again. They always seem to perch on the one telegraph pole on the bend in the road where it would be dangerous to stop and when they're on the other poles they wait until I slow down to take a photo, (driving while trying to look into the camera and focus is not to be recommended), and then they fly off.

Looking out towards Exmoor from the top of the drive.
This is the white variety of skunk cabbage. Most of the plants in and around this pond are white, yellow or orange though there is a blue and white water iris as well as the white ones just because I couldn't resist buying it.
Here is another of my videos, apologies for the poor quality but I'm only just getting to grips with the video option on my camera. I was trying to show some of the views I see every day on my way to work. Having started life right by the sea in Cornwall and then having to live for over 20 years in London, it lifts my spirits being able to get a glimpse of the sea every day.
This evening we watched the second episode of Number One Detective Agency on BBC 1. It's well worth watching and is also available on BBCiplayer on the internet.

I decided to drive home by a longer route going down Zig-Zag, a series of sharp bends down into a steep valley. I was hoping to get some good photos of a field/garden behind a cottage that is covered with primroses at this time of year.
I managed to find a place to park nearby and was greeted by these friendly sheep.

The bearded dragon, coral snake and gecko were interesting and the children that wanted to got a chance to stroke them. Some of the children were a little wary.Tomorrow I'll be bringing in one of my ex-battery hens.
I also spotted this shrub, japonica ?, over a wall when I stopped to take photos.

This was the birdsong in the garden this morning before I set off for work. I'm just getting used to using the video setting on my camera so it's not very good . I think the ticking noise must be something to do with the camera, or more probably my watch which I wear on my right wrist!
