On my usual 6-mile, circular walk it wasn’t as sunny as it was forecast to be, so I’ve selected these images for their colour.
BBC4 are repeating The Young Montalbano and what a glorious treat it is.
A great story (Mortally Wounded) was pure joy. There’s so much to be gained from being familiar with the main characters, their quirks, their repetitive behaviour. It’s quality drama with complex and rich, crime stories. It’s funny, it’s farce, and it’s charming and brilliant. The acting is wonderful, the characters are warm and the actors are beautiful.
An acquired taste, for sure, but when you get it, you’re in for a treat.
A grasshopper, if I’m not mistaken. As a boy I used to seek them out in the long grass.
