I like the moody and melancholy signals, and the starkness of the steel work against the sky but you can't beat these cheery little chaps for a bit of colour on a sunny day.

I planted loads of those to keep the slugs away.





The slugs ate them.

OK its indoor-time or getting that way, so before the clock strikes 12 another small first day challenge.

1. Find a photographic device
2. Take a photo of a calendar in your house displaying the month of August 2022, and any associated image.
3. Post it up on this thread.

I will time myself doing this very task it is now 19.08 on my laptop.

Original photo, taken on the first day of the month, qualifies for any post on the thread, just trying to tease a few out!
Is that it, or is there more creativity to be had. :-D

Pretty easy to join in

My boy wanted to take something from his special provision school to remember it by. He came home with this.

I too only have a colander, no calendar. Except some for work where the dates fit with the current year. Must have at least fifty of them.

I use the Google calendar, but rarely. And the one on the phone, even more rarely as it is a pain to enter anything.

All the birthdays are in a spreadsheet that updates itself daily.
Except a lot of the dates I put in are wrong.
Always got my eldest daughter's birthday wrong until she had a son, they are both born on the 24th so I can remember hers now.
Was youngests birthday yesterday (38), got it right for a change. Took her a huge bunch of flowers. She's gone to Scotland for a week, they will all be dead before she comes back.
