I'm saving the cost of petrol by walking to the supermarket with my trusty trolley, giving myself plenty of fresh air and exercise. (The full trolley plus full bag = weight training!)
No lovely pics of countryside, flowers or gorgeous views today. Why throw your litter on the pavement? Why not take it home? It's litter galore along the roads around here.
Another sight that is plentiful is featured below. I could have taken a score or more pics of this bad behaviour. (Not the dog, of course, but the owner.)
Empty shops are a sign of the times but they don't enhance the surroundings.
Neither does grafitti.
The pavements are a disgrace with pot-holes, cracked slabs and botched repairs.
This was a necessary walk but not a particularly pleasant one. I thought I'd take the grotty shots on the way to the shop and then take some pretty shots on the way back. Sorry, but even I could not find any today. I've neglected to mention the tramp who was staggering slightly and the dreadful state of some people's gardens.
After packing away the shopping, I filled a carrier bag full of litter which I picked up in our front garden. It blows in from off the street - cigarette wrappers, chocolate, crisp and toffee wrappers, polystyrene (!), plastic bags and plastic bottles. (This one was half full of cider!)
Never mind, my garden is tidy now, the brass is polished on the front door and the step and windowsills washed, a pot roast is slow cooking in the oven and we have food for the week.
A warm welcome to my new followers. I'm not negative for too long!
