1. In all the chaos of moving, finding my sunglasses, on just about the first fine day in August, in the bottom of my rucksack.
2. Silently, not bothering anyone, a mushroom has pushed its scaled cap out of the soil under a fir tree by a busy stretch of pavement.
3. We sit outside in the warm evening shade with a jug of Pimm's and my writing buddy's new book of short stories.
