Memories

No time for anything much today. Just a picture of your not so humble Culture Blogger, aged about five, in water colour, done by, if memory serves, the late Miss Elizabeth Scott-Moore, of somewhere not far from Englefield Green, where my mum still lives.

I visited Mum yesterday, for some strawberries. She isn't getting any younger, and I suddenly realised that that house could all be over, so to speak, very suddenly. So I took a couple of hundred pictures, inside and out, what with the weather being so fine, including a few more great ones of Mum herself.

Here's what the house looks like.

Circa 1900, I think. And there's a big garden, by current suburban standards.
