Woeful failure to take photos

Below, a place I really love - the Royal Festival Hall. We got to know it very well when our children played in a national Suzuki concert there. This time we were at closing concert of the Philharmonia's season - Bartok, Mozart and Beethoven. It was absolutely sublime.

The only other photo to emerge from the weekend is this totally unsatisfactory one taken in the Chelsea Physic Garden. The garden was lovely and interesting and educational, but fiendishly difficult for photos, because it just looked like a large kitchen garden with some information panels. I don't really mean 'just', and perhaps much of its charm is to be a garden that looks achievable rather than ferocious.

Back in Edinburgh I was lucky enough to see something that's been tantalizing me on weather and cloud sites, but I began to doubt would ever be a feature of Edinburgh's skis. Mammatus clouds! They're associated with thunder clouds, which aren't very frequent here. However, we've had a couple of thunderstorms this week, one of which I slept through, and in the morning on looking out of the window (which had been open wide all night) thought, 'oh, there's been a bit of a shower of rain in the night'.
