Photo of the Week 21 / Peace and Quiet?

This was my view on Friday morning, before I ventured to work. Looks idyllic doesn’t it? A beautiful rhododendron explosion, offering a slice of peace before the busyness of the day takes over. Well that was the plan, anyway. Unfortunately...
Do We Really Hate Mother-In-Laws?

Do We Really Hate Mother-In-Laws?
