Pictures

I am not good at pictures.  I used to excuse using WikiCommons and now places like Pixebay and Pixnio because I was only using a phone and not a real camera.  Then I found out that plenty of the amazing pics in places like Flickr are actually taken by phones.  I felt a fail.  I am actually quite pleased, however, with these pictures.  The blackberries seemed to have ripened early this year, and I took a pic a few days ago. 





The pictures almost look like someone who knows what they are doing took them. 

I think the weather is going to have consequences here.  The spring was so late that a lot of growers must have lost ground.  I know that we don't have any apples on the tree because blossom time was over before the weather warmed up and the insects were out.  Now it's so dry a lot of plants are showing distress.  The laurel trees opposite us are losing leaves. 

Another driving lesson today, and one tomorrow.  I did okay.  I went down some unfamiliar roads without casualties, but I need to get quicker pulling out of junctions.  I still need a lot of help, but I'm optimistic that I will be driving by September. 

Bear had his last day of primary school today.  He came home with the Harry Potter backpack which he had said had been lost without trace and fell apart a little.  It's a big step in his life.  As bear utterly resists change, and he's coming up to a big one, it's tough on him.  I shall remember to make a fuss of him over the summer. 

Bless - I think you are right, it's heat stress that's causing issues.  I will be glad when I can complain about being too cold.
