Good morning, I'm multitasking today, uploading these photo's while I sew another shopping bag. Computer and sewing machine side by side, swapping from one to the other. Here are the last few pics from Saturday's visit to Birmingham. I noticed while walking around the city that there was hardly any litter on the ground. I saw several street cleaning personnel with their carts, tidying up and emptying the litter bins. I believe that if you have a tidy place people are less likely to drop litter because then it is seen as an anti social act. If you leave litter lying around people are more likely to add to it. Thumbs up for Birmingham for keeping it under control.
The parks and gardens department also seem to be doing their bit to make the place look attractive. The splash of colours in the border here show the architecture behind them to their best advantage.
Here is a link to their web site.
This is the Hall of Memory, a war memorial built in 1922. It is made from Portland stone from the Isle of Portland in Dorset. Additional information here.
Who is that strange woman, ha ha.Additional information here.
It's a bit chilly this morning, I'll carry on with the sewing. Toodle pip.
