July has been a rather disappointing month in the sunset department, but Tuesday's sunset almost made up for it.

Warm weather has brought out lots of insect life. I don't recognise this bug; he was about 2cm long and stayed on the outside of my balcony door for several hours. BTW, what looks like a dirty window is actually crusted with salt, the result of July's high winds.

Missing the obvious

I was so busy concentrating on the coats of arms that I didn't notice what was in the window until much later when I looked at the photo on the computer. It's Preston Manor again.

Deep purple

Clematis jackmanii - the flowers are huge (up to 15cm across) as well as being a fabulous colour.

Gardening's in full swing round about. Whether you do the work yourself or get someone in to do it for you, it's beautiful weather for weeding, clipping and mowing.

Spinning in the sunshine

This is Lynne, a fairly new spinner, at the July meeting of Brighton TAG (Textile Arts Group). The group meets every month in the Scout Hall, Glebe Villas; when the weather's fine, activities move outside to the sports field.
