Developments over the weekend.

 London's Globe Theatre is awesome. If you're in London visiting, bin off the west end stuff and shakespeare-up Elizabethan-style. Tis epic. Unlike this cameraphone shot (pre-performance).

Cool asides - there's few finer places to enjoy a glass of pimms than outside the Globe post or pre-performance. There's also few finer places to get a view of the sun setting on the thames, the millenium bridge and St Paul's. All in all, it's a pretty legendary way to spend an evening in London (plus I understand they're about to put on Dr. Faustus by Elizabethan James Bond/PZ Myers hybrid and badass Christopher Marlowe).

Other London developments? Hyde Park is a great place right now to see the Caucasian Wingnut in flower/seed/fluorescence (there are a few looking great). Also what I think was Acer carpinifolia looking good and a few big Magnolias and so on still holding flower. Worth a walk although I still haven't connected with the Hyde Park tawny owls.

Meanwhile back on the ranch....

Most certainly a post of contrasts.

P.S. Strangely, the WV is 'mycel'.
