We have been away in the south of England. The weather was hot and rather on the muggy side while we visited a friend in Walton-on-Thames west of London. It was wonderful and ... the roses were out!
No matter if they are in parks, manor houses, cottages or roadsides, they are a feast for the senses at this time of year.
These shots were taken on my iPhone. I continue to be impressed with the sophistication of this splendid technology!
But best of all when we returned home I put my feet up in front of the TV for ... no, not the tennis which everyone else is watching ... but a BBC program Perfume. It is on iPlayer here and I think runs for 30 days.
Yes, it was about perfume and how a new line is brought out, say, in time for the Christmas market. But to me it was all about how to establish a brand and that it happened to be perfume was secondary as far as I was concerned. It's big business and this program covered both a French house and an American one comparing their approach to this task.
