Little Oscar in wet grass.
A snail stretching across two pieces of reed.
Gingernuts kippin’ on t’keyboard.
The top gate of Morse lock was jammed an inch or two open. The bottom gates leak so much that they might as well not be there. I tweeted C&RT and the culprit, a fishing umbrella, was removed in moments.
