A few snaps from this week.

I went with my mother to the Royal William Yard, the old Royal Naval victualling yard in Plymouth this week.   We had a vague plan to visit an artist friend of hers who has a studio in the RWY, but in the end, we couldn't find it.  We had a good afternoon out anyway though.   We loved the amazing flower-banks by the car park, all fluttering with butterflies.

We had a High Tea in a Teagarden.  It was quite remarkably genteel.  This is my Mum inspecting the High Tea and making a joke about not being adequately genteel.

You can hire paddleboards in the Royal William Yard now.   I was tempted, but not really dressed for it, and Mum is a bit past her watersports days...

It was such a great day, PP and I went back to Plymouth for tea, with the hounds.  We had a good view of the tombstoning spot, which is festooned with signs telling you NOT to jump off into the sea as you might die.  There were, none the less, Yoofs hanging about and clearly considering jumping in.  Loons.

We're making a special effort to make sure the hounds see lots of other dogs at the moment, since Brythen had shown some alarming signs of copying Rosie's bad reactions recently.

There were lots of dogs out and about in Plymouth, but mostly on lead and easy to stay at a non-scary distance, so it was a good place to practice (Brythen met LOADS of dogs and behaved beautifully!).    Here is Rosie ignoring a chocolate labrador, and demanding a slice of the bread-and-butter that came with my crab.

They were gorgeous - and a lot of them native wildflowers too, corn poppies and cornflowers and corncockles, and I think the golden daisy-flowers may have been a fleabane, but I'm not sure which one.

Again, love the flowers in particular.

Did Rosie get some bread and butter? And did she get some crab?

Rosie ate most of my bread and butter, but she doesn't like crab. It was a good thing I'd ordered some chips on the side (Rosie prefers bread to chips!)

Fabulous display of wildflowers! And highly impressive High Tea!

That is one very intent stare on the part of Rosie.

When the Intent Stare alone failed to work, she deployed the Saluki Nose-whistle. I had to let her have my bread and butter for the sake of the people on the surrounding tables!
