Sedum – and F1 GP!

Today’s F1 GP was incident-packed, scary at times, but what a result! A 1-2 for McLaren – and fully deserved, as they might well have won even if Verstappen had not taken out Hamilton. I’m a long-time McLaren supporter (especially after BRM finally stopped), and it has been sad to see their decline over many seasons, until their recent recovery. So the extra below shows how I celebrated their 1-2!

Sprint race

I do NOT like this trial format, which was also used for the British GP. The sprint race tends to be processional, as they don’t want to risk damaging the cars, and there are very few points available to make it worthwhile, and the last practice becomes even more pointless.

Hornby Dublo

Hornby recently celebrated their centenary, and released replicas of some of their earlier products. One of these was the VW van with their name on it. HOWEVER, this one is actually an original from way back when, photographed today on  my rather neglected industrial layout! Also in this pictures are some old Matchbox models (slightly over-scale?) – we had a white A50 , and I learned to drive on it (dreadful gear change – the famous editor of Motor Sport, Bill Body, commented at the time that ‘the man who designed this gearbox should quickly be found other employment!).

Another cactus!

I seem to be running short of subjects for even emergencies!

Gazania

Not their best year, but still very attractive.

I went to Specsavers …

… and on the way back from town I stopped briefly at the lily pond in the park. The ducklings have grown so much since my last visit – in fact they are now fully grown and less photogenic than they were, so I photographed this tiny flower in the wall around the pond.
