I had to use my photo archive as this month I didn't have the opportunity to find and take photos to illustrate two or three of the subjects on the list.
D IS FOR ?
Roughshod Young Actors Company from Riding Lights Theatre came to the Cathedral in July and gave several performances of sketches on the themes of freedom and liberty that challenged us. Afterwards we were able to chat with the group over tea and cake from the new cathedral cafe.
The Cascade, Chatsworth. Derbyshire

'Chaise Lawn' by Deger Cengiz for the design studio 'Raw Edges' next to the Canal Pond, Chatsworth
A flower pot made from a piece of clay pipe demonstrates how ordinary items were utilised in the WWII 'Dig for Victory' kitchen garden displayed at Chatsworth.
One from the family album - Grandson no. 3, taken quite a few years ago. Now in his early twenties he's still enjoying life to the full, which makes us happy.
I came across this abandoned house whilst on a walk down in the valley near where we live. Who had lived there and why had it been left to become a ruin?
Later I found out that it had once been owned by a local mill owner, then it was the out-of-town residence of a steel manufacturer before becoming the social club for the workers of a refractory brick works. As the valley remains undeveloped this building has been left derelict. The photo is taken from the lane as it wasn't possible to get any nearer due to safety issues.
A flower bed by the outside wall of the walled garden in the local park has been left in a wild state possibly to encourage bees and other pollinators, but that spear thistle planted as an ornamental will still have to be dealt with soon before it starts to produce seeds. Apparently there's a saying - Cut thistles in May they'll grow in a day, cut them in June that's too soon, cut them in July then they will die. For the moment the insects appreciate the flowers!
One of our collection of mugs - a gift from grandchildren to Mr. P. - has 'knock knock' jokes on it.
archive photo from last March at the terminus rail station of Roma (Fiumicino) Airport.
Le Frecce are a series of high speed trains connecting cities and towns across Italy. They can reach a speed of 250 km/hour. The above is the ETR600 pendolino Frecciargento 'Silver Arrow'.
On a warm evening in Italy Mr. P works in the garden. Dark skies and on that night there was a full moon........in contrast to an evening out at a restaurant in my UK home town.
WHATEVER YOU WANT
Wild flowers and other summer-flowering plants have been grown in a patch in the local park. Although the creeping thistles have taken over in some places, the plot still looks very colourful.
