It is very hot in the UK at the moment and for many today may well be the hottest day of the year (and even since records began). For those of you affected, like me, stay cool, hydrated and in the shade. I hope you all stay well and just to cheer up anyone who may be feeling a bit miserable from the overly oppressive heat, here’s a photo I took a few weeks ago in London (before the grass began to dry out) of a cool stream…or is it a brook? I don’t know what it is, but the sound of the water trickling in an otherwise quiet location is wonderful. 😎😎😎

The photo challenge for this week is the word smile and I can’t help but smile every time I see one of these guys in the town or city. I know plenty of people see pigeons as pests but I’ll never forget the hoard of pigeons that flocked around me when I visited Trafalgar Square in London as a child. Pigeons are banned from there these days but back then there were stalls set up that sold cups of seeds just so you could feed the delightful and often silly birds.
Today I am bringing you a picture which I think sums up the word silence very well. With what looks like civilisation so far away, there is a great silence near this water. The only thing you hear is a breeze in your ears but it’s a beautiful silence otherwise and the perfect place to take a moment to yourself and breathe 🙂
