Roller skates, pollen, primulas

I read in the evening paper that the London police have abandoned the roller skates with which they were issued to pursue micreants in the London parks, because the baddies have hit on the ingenious idea of running away on the grass, where roller-skating cops cannot follow.

Clouds of yellow pollen blow into the air from the Leylandii bordering the drive of the house opposite.

Pale yellow, almost white primulas planted in a basement window box this morning match those which have been growing in the flower bed above them for several years.
