Most of them are £16 per pair, first class postage is £1.50, happy to post overseas - DM me if you're interested!

Along the tracks in Mountain View stands a line of ginkgo trees, bent slightly, not by Diablo winds or ocean gales but the punctuated wakes of trains.

In fall, they glow Suessian yellow, bright as torches in the early sundown. How strange that the trains bend the tree but the leaves remain. Waiting, I suppose, for the absent rains to pull them down.
