  2. I remember when "toby jugs" were popular collectibles. I wonder if they still are? Is Royal Doulton still producing new ones? I wonder.

    1. Wonder no longer, Debra. These 'characters' have been living on this shelf for over a year now.....could just be things of the past. But I do appreciate the work in some of them. Toby Jug manufacturers hired artists of the time to draw/sculpt the characters. I don't believe RD is still producing them as a lot of the companies have stopped as well.

  3. Beautiful views, and the beach scenes, makes me realise how long it is since we were walking on sand. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Jean, walking in the sand on a sunny, warm day is so soothing for the soul. I hope you can experience it once again soon.

  7. Lovely photos as always. We get a lot of forget-me-nots in the garden,, but ours are finished now. Luckily they are easy to pull up! Over here " Sweet William" is a completely different plant.
