  Sometimes I let Brown Teddy, Dino and the Parrots take the camera out, as long as they promise to look after it carefully. I am keeping an In Tray folder on my computer desktop for them to put their unusual or interesting photos in, and I will wear my Editor's hat while I am sorting through them.

Autumn leaves on tree in Priory Park
Brown Teddy sent me this picture. The wind normally comes from the west, so the side with leaves still on must be east, which means Brown Teddy was facing south at the time. He then turned north and came home into the warm!

Hay rolls in field  Hay rolls on truck
Dino says these are for bedding for dinosaurs that live with people.

Pedestrians roadworks sign
This picture is from Blue Parrot, who says it is really easy for him to obey this sign. Not so good, though, if you don't have any wings to take you upwards!

Half a moon
Dino says it wasn't him who ate half the moon, as he never eats anything that has suspicious marks on it that might be mould!

Bromley Museum poster re dinosaurs
Dino sent me this picture. He says that, despite the Bromley Museum poster, dinosaurs are not extinct at all and are living happily in a very nice house in Orpington. Blue Parrot sometimes claims to be a sort of flying dinosaur that just happens to have colourful feathers, so that's two in one house for starters.

Old library building, Priory Park
Thank once again, Dino, for finding an edible building. This is the old Library in Priory Park, which seems to made up of vanilla wafers covered in chocolate and crushed Brazil nuts, with caramel cream filling between. Now that the Library has moved to the High Street, can we all now set to and eat the wafers? These flint stones look just like the squares on the tower in Hall Place, which you can see in my Diary.

Dino with rainbow  Dino with remains of rainbow
Dino says he saw this rainbow in the cupboard and wanted to keep it for later. He shut the door quickly but a bit of the rainbow got trapped in the door. Well done, Dino, but I think that later the rainbow will have soaked into all the sheets and put some colour back into the faded ones!

Road resurfacing machine
Dino sent me this picture of a giant road eating dinosaur. When roads get old, the dinosaur eats them up and then people come along and lay a new road surface. It is so heavy it can't walk so it goes along on trackwheels. Thank you, Dino, we were wondering what that very heavy rumbling sound was for the last few weeks!

Cycle path double white lines
Brown Teddy was wondering whether the workman who painted the lines got paid double wages for the extra work. He was also wondering what the road rules are for the island bit in the middle, and who is allowed to walk on it. We finally decided that only the pigeons are allowed. The line separates the cyclists from people walking.

Roadside pebbles
Dino says these are loads of baked potatoes. I really think he should eat a bigger breakfast, so that he doesn't get so hungry mid-morning. These pebbles are near some steps by the roadside. I think they look like a flock of sheep on a green field.


Blue Parrot has decided that this sign means "Beware of Angry Artists who brought all their paints except the Blue Pot." Well, I can sympathise, but that danger must be past now, because the sign has been left lying on the verge.

Priory Buildings, Priory Gardens, Orpington, Kent
Dino sent me this picture of Priory Buildings in Orpington. He says either there was a tiny earthquake underneath this particular room (caused by dinosaurs walking past) or the building has had a bad case of hiccups. I think it looks like a slice of walnut layer cake being removed from a large slab, and it makes me hungry just looking at it, especially the stripes which are of course the chocolate creamy bits.


Dino says this is a snow snake climbing a lamppost. Brown Teddy says he thinks the wind was blowing the other side and this side was a bit sheltered. Whatever it is, it is gone now but I am glad someone took a photo.

Iron chain with spikes  Tree stump
Dino has made a special effort to get out and about looking for pictures. He says this is a chain fence made up of old dinosaur teeth that are as hard as iron. The second picture he claims is the winning throw in a dinosaur javelin throwing contest using real tree trunks. If we pulled it out of the ground, would we find a pointed end or a lot of roots? I wonder!

Feather clouds
Blue Parrot says this looks like giant feathers floating across the sky, but he prefers coloured ones!

Oven chips advertisement
Dino would really like to put this picture up in the kitchen to remind people what the best dinner is. In oven chip bags there is sometimes one really big one and we make sure that Dino always gets that one on his plate.

Stones that remind Dino of sugared almonds
Dino is keeping this picture by his bedside. He loves eating sugared almonds, and when he does you can hear the crunching from the next room. Unfortunately, these are roadside stones but the picture does help him remember the delights of the almonds and it might also remind someone to buy some for him.

 

Brown Teddy sent me these pictures of Daddy, Mummy and Little Girl. I think it is the Blobby Family. The first one is on a wide path to show which half is for people walking and which half is for cyclists. The yellow one is a car park sign.

Bag of plastic strips
Dino thought this was a nosebag full of grass for a very large dinosaur-sized horse. It is really the plastic ties that were round the crates of paving bricks for the new pavements in Orpington High Street. It would take quite some chewing!

Frozen mud and straw  Bell shaped street furniture on roadside
Blue Parrot spotted these while flying with us on our walks looking down on a snowy mountain range in the first morning sunlight, and a snow-capped round mountain made of volcanic granite. I think he had some help from Dino with those descriptions. (The first is on a frosty morning at Hewitts Farm Boot Sale, where they put straw in the mud so the cars don't get stuck. The second is on a road corner, to stop cars going over the pavement, which would be very dangerous for people walking.)

Motorway over Crittalls Corner, Kent  Three piles of cumulus clouds
Dino was delighted to see that the motorway over Crittalls Corner roundabout was held up with giant breadsticks. I think they look like seaside rock with the sugary words down the middle. Dino says this cloud picture is three mounds of mashed potato, one for himself, one for me and one for Brown Teddy. I like my mash fluffy and especially with some veggie sausages sticking out of the top!

Snowy footprints in pairs
Brown Teddy showed me this photo because it is puzzling and I am good at puzzles. He wants to know how the footprints are in two's. It could be someone was bunny-hopping or even kangaroo-ing, but then they would have fallen over. Maybe the person was taking big steps with one foot and the other foot was always catching up. If you look carefully you can see the toes are pointing in opposite directions, so I think the person walked down and then walked back. Puzzled solved!

Cycle path sign on the ground
"This bicycle got tired of living on top of the post and has decided to go for a ride along the ground. This would be just my size if it was a real bike!" Brown Teddy

Log or Logosaurus in Orpington Priory pond
Dino sent me this picture of a giant amphibious Logosaurus in Orpington Priory Park pond. I told Dino I can't see any eyes, so it must be a tree log, but Dino said it was sleeping. The ducks and coots like to sit on it because it is a safe place to rest.

Giant Atom climbing frame in Orpington Priory park
Dino told me about a giant atom in Orpington Priory Park and he has finally got a photo of it. As you can see, atoms have a lot of space in them. It has to be an atom of something, and Dino says it is an atom of Parkium. Where did he get that name from?

Pipes at Rochester looking like seaside rock sweets  Plastic piping looking like liquorice
"Two sticks of seaside rock on a mound of chocolate crunchy powder, and a humongous ginormous piece of liquorice that we saw at Rochester." Dino.
(You can't eat them! Yellow Teddy)

Shark fish windsock Pedham Place Swanley boot fair
"This shark was swimming in the air and it was very windy so a lot of swimming was being done. Like me, he takes good care of all his teeth so he can eat his dinners." Dino.

One red holly berry  Two red holly berries  Holly flower with green berry
"These three red berries are on some tiny holly plants in a tub. There were more but I think the birds have visited them. They started off green in the middle of a flower.  I would like these berries to survive until it snowed, but the birds may come back. Well, even if they do, we still have the plants and next year they will be bigger and better." Brown Teddy

Mote Park tree roots or maybe dinosaurs
Dino chose this picture from my Mote Park photos. He says they are not tree roots but baby dinosaurs that have hatched and are about to slide into the water. He says they are Croco-saurus and they eat leaves and sticks. That would explain all the bits of broken sticks around the edge of the lake. I think they are friendly little dinosaurs, if they are not tree roots that is! Yellow Teddy

Dino with red melon
Dino did write a caption for this on a scrap of paper but it got a bit pink and soggy. He ate the whole slice and did not want any snacks for quite a while. I have planted the melon seeds in a pot and we are waiting for the plants to appear. - Yellow Teddy

Venus fly trap plant
"This plant catches flies in a cage. It starts off open, but when the fly walks on the red bits, the cage shuts. It is called Venus Fly Trap." Dino.

Wooden squirrel in Stockwood Park    Wooden owl in Stockwood Park
"The wooden squirrel and wooden owl are in Stockwood Park in Luton and are as big as a grownup person.  They are carved from dead tree trunks that are still in the ground. They make the park look very friendly." Brown Teddy.

Brown Teddy's puzzle keyring
"Yellow Teddy got this puzzle keyring for me at the boot fair. When I look at it I try to decide which is my favourite colour but I like them all. I am starting a treasure box of my own and this will go in it. It is a plastic sandwich box but Yellow Teddy says he will find me a more beautiful one." Brown Teddy.

UPDATE: Here is the lovely box that Yellow Teddy found for me. It is a Noah's Ark Biscuit Tin, and it has African people helping the animals onto the ark. I am going to make some compartments from the bottoms of plastic bottles, to put my beads and shells in. Thank you, Yellow Teddy!

Dino with satsumas
This is Dino lying on his beanbag, trying to deal with 3 satsumas at once. I am not sure if he is eating them or pretending they are dinosaur eggs. I don't think he ever eats just one of anything.

Dino's painting
Dino did this painting quite a few years ago. He says it is called "Back view of a crowd of blue and green dinosaurs admiring a red and yellow sunset on a summer's evening, just after a big cream-tea picnic in the garden." Dino does a good painting but his descriptions are even more ingenious!

Brown Teddy with Observing Bag
"This is my Observation Bag. It is a sunglasses bag with a belt clip. I keep my notepad, pencils and sharpener in it. I am always ready for anything. I chose red so that I could always find it." Brown Teddy.

Airline pilot changing his mind
Dino says this is a photo of an Airline Pilot changing his mind, after getting a call from his Mum from those mobile phone masts, saying that it is Crusty Pie and Mash for dinner. (They never do that, but Dino prefers his explanation.)

Round bench
Brown Teddy and I agree that this is a bench for people who like to change their minds all the time, depending on which way the wind is blowing. The bench is at the river end of Rochester High Street.

Rochester Airfield plane
This plane is on display at Rochester Airfield. Dino is convinced it is a giant novelty pencil sharpener, for the big yellow pencil that is used to draw the double yellow lines along main roads. Well, I have never seen them doing the yellow lines, so I can't really comment on that.

Road sign
Dino says he wants a flying bike like this one. Sounds a bit like a Rupert Bear adventure to me. The child in the picture is obviously asking the grownup the same thing.

Owl Seat
Brown Teddy really likes this friendly-looking Owl Seat which is by a boating pond in Orpington. The seat is in memory of someone who liked to sail his model boats there, so I think the circles are boat steering wheels, the wavy bits are water, and the arm rests are anchors. But we are calling it the Owl Seat.

Dino's heart-shaped potato
Dino rescued this heart-shaped potato while watching someone getting the dinner ready. He is going to admire it for a day or two, then have it for dinner as a jacket potato, which means it won't get peeled and lose its shape. He says it is going to taste a lot better than the average potato and he is going to fill it with quark cheese, hot tomatoes and lots of beans. Update: Dino says he enjoyed arranging the beans in the spud and playing counting games, before he ate it all.
