Haven't heard from anyone yet. Is anyone  there?

This  is  a  picture of an Italian crossbow  (  a birding bow) dating from the latish 1 6th  century.
Please acknowledge If received (Testing).
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.

Still trying -  birds and flowers.


Frog.


Spot the  frog.  Variant on  Mystery object.


At the moment  this is now  working. It is a Mystery Object!  Yes really. I you examine the photograph  closely you  should  be able  to tell me  what the  object's purpose is, where it was made, and  the exact year it was made.   Good luck.

This  picture (if we  can publish it) is probably irrelevant.
No I  was wrong. It is relevant. It is a mystery  object, and  I f you  look really closely at the photo you should   be able to work out the purpose of the item, it's  exact size and the year it was made.
Please ignore all what  I have wrote today. Because it was all  tosh and tarrardiddle.

Thursday.

My good  friend, the local computer expert, is with me  this morning, and we are making a determined effort to make this *0%43=7 computer machine return to its duties. Please respon
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).

Tuesday.



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 ?????

Thursday.




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.

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.
