Love the one of the church tower Dave; even more than the rural scene.

Can I have a rant?
Was out at lunch-time at the flea-market (can be a good place for cheap old storage jars).
There is also a plant stall which can be iffy (occasionally succumb to the odd tray of bedding plants but nowt else).
Just seen nearly the worst fruit trees on sale ever (barring only the dead sticks in the cheap shops).
Pear, apple, plum. Green at least until you look more closely. Two nice 50 cm growths on either side, from the root stock. Some had other growths higher up from the rootstock. Some had actually got scion wood growing above the graft - maybe 10cms at most.
I tried to explain to the woman running the stall and she said "Oh good, that's nice". Explained it was not nice as the grafts would fail, "but that is how we buy them!"
She has not got a clue what she is selling and plainly they do not know what they are buying

RAS, regrettably where sellers are clueless or mendacious it's buyer beware. As an online seller, I strongly believe that its necessary to provide an accurate condition description and not mislead buyers either through lack of knowledge or by deception. But I'm often amazed at how some sellers stretch the truth to get a sale
The UK's recent run of damp summers could be down to a cyclical warming of the Atlantic Ocean.
That was the view of scientists and meteorologists who gathered at the Met Office to discuss the unusual weather patterns of recent years.
They said that this 10 to 20 year pattern of Atlantic warming was shifting the jet stream, leading to washouts in six of the last seven summers.
But they suggested that the pattern would change at some point in the next decade.
