Japanese anemones. sometimes called windflowers. They grow easily and accept all sorts of conditions. Palest of pale pink, tall, and beautiful! I love the way they’ve spread in our garden.
Nothing very special in August – not surprising, really, because they don’t put new exciting things on here in summer.
Deceit. (Ch 4) **** A dramatic reconstruction of the entrapment of the wrong man, Colin Stagg, over the Rachel Nikell murder. Quite an interesting series with a focus on the policewoman who went undercover. Available on All4 (UK)
The Railway Killers (Ch 5) *** Another reconstruction of the hunt for the railway killers. This stuck more closely to the memories of the police involved. Available on My5 (UK)
Pretty Woman*** A disappointing rewatch of a film I used to love. The story still appealed but I found the characters too ‘glossy’ and the direction somewhat laboured. So some favourites are for ever and others aren’t…
Sweet tooth. (Netflix) Abandoned. New Scientist praised this sci fi series and made me want to see it. A plague results in human/animal hybrids and the story follows an antlered boy’s journey through life and survival. We watched two episodes then gave up and I’m not really sure why. Husband said he couldn’t be bothered with it, and I meant to watch on my own then found myself postponing it till it became something in the past. I suppose I didn’t connect adequately with the characters.
