If You Go Down To The Woods Today??

Take your work gloves,raincoat,earmuffs and wear the working boots as well.
Then heave a huge sigh of relief ( quietly of course) as Hugh says those magic  words
“ That’s it for today” as the rain fell in  abundance. Good!, GOOD !! GOOD.!!!

Next on the menu, literally was lunch. Then out again, to see a friend.
Pansies,Broccoli, Tamarillos are all in my friend's garden.

Who could resist taking more photos,
those pansy faces seemed to say
“Look at  me”, so I did.

Purple broccoli, a great colour combination, and I guess, also great in the kitchen.
One tamarillo refused to stay still and swayed in the wind.No chance of a perfect shot there.

Quotation of the day from Sir  Winston Leonard Spencer- Churchill, 1874-1965
( In public life the surname  Sir Winston used was Churchill , as his father had done)
“However beautiful the  strategy, you should  occasionally look at the results.”
Cheers from Jean
