The Guildford Castle gardens are a riot of colour at the moment, with a plethora of poppies in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.
The image has been altered (accidentally) to give the impression of an illustration rather than a traditional photograph.
On a very wet and dark Thursday afternoon there is nothing more comforting than a slice of handmade Rocky Road presented on a pretty pink bona-china plate.
I am beginning to see a food theme with my photographs, which I suspect is probably having a negative impact on my waist line.

Who would ever have thought it, that a three-day week could feel like the longest week in history. First week back at work after eleven days off for Christmas and it has been tough.
The early starts, the dark nights and getting back into the rhythm of work. Now for the weekend and time to brush the cares away.
Autumn is a upon us and we are enjoying some unseasonably warm weather in the south of England. Just in case, I was tempted to forget it is actually autumn the evidence is in abundance and can be easily seen.
Our neighbour’s grapevine has been growing fast along the adjoining fence and has started to invade our garden, which means we now seeing bunches of ripening grapes appearing.
For B&W Wednesday and today’s November In Black and White I have used the theme of time.
Time hath, my lord, a wallet at his back,
Wherein he puts alms for oblivion,
A great-sized monster of ingratitudes:
Those scraps are good deeds past; which are devour’d
As fast as they are made, forgot as soon
Ulysses from Troilus & Cressida Act 3 Scene III
Together with the close-up of my old and broken watch, I have included the only quote I can remember from my A Level English Lit studies of Troilus and Cressida.
