solar eclipse

My solar eclipse was hiding behind a tree in the fog near the Tower of London!

may day

Today is May Day, the First of May, the day of ancient rites, the Green Man, Jack in the Green, the May Queen, maypoles, may blossom and Morris Men.  It is drizzling this morning but the trees and leaves are vivid; even the stinging nettles, wild roses and forget-me-nots by the railway tracks are as green as can be.

winter solstice

A typical rainy street scene all over London this afternoon on the shortest day of the year.  Winter begins today and, yes, it’s already getting dark!

Muita chuva em Londres nesta tarde no dia mais curto do ano.  O inverno começa hoje e a noite já está caindo!
