Sleepy Red Panda

I thought I’d share with you a memory of a lovely day. About 12 years ago, I went to Copenhagen for a long weekend with my Ma. On our last day we went to the zoo.

I was VERY keen to see the red pandas…”Sssh” I cautioned, “they’re very shy!”. We turned the corner to see this little chap…”Shy indeed!” retorted Ma.

Man accommodates Nature

Spotted in Summertown yesterday – I’m always pleased to see trees being respected. There are a few Victorian walls down the Banbury Road (in Oxford) that let tree roots through, but this is the most modern example I’ve seen. Hurrah for the plot owner and builder.
