Poppies, Three Folk on a Bench and Rainbow Supper

25 May

1    I saw these when I went for my (very successful!) piano lesson. Aren’t they beautiful? I must grow some.

2    We met this happy trio when we went to a garden centre in Wadebridge to buy some trellis panels. They were very happy for me to take their photo. The women said that Charlie wasn’t very talkative but would be happy enough to be in the photo.

3   A beautiful almost Rainbow supper tonight, Red peppers, Orange carrots, (no Yellow but we had bananas in our breakfast pancakes) Green broccoli and Green beans, no Blue (but there were blueberries in the pancakes too), Indigo in the aubergines and Violet in the once red onions which went violet as they cooked! A rainbow a day keeps the doctor away!

    Charlie doesn’t look too charmed. Looks like a real character. He reminds of how we used to sit in our school benches in class. That food looks beyond good. In fact I’m getting on a plane now and coming for supper.

    I love your comment, ‘the poppies look like the sun on earth’ a beautiful way to see them – thank you my friend!

    The cute people? The ladies were hilarious and the old chap, a very realistic sculpture whom they were befriending!

    Have a good weekend,

    I love poppies! I keep thinking that I have to grow some, but I never do. One of these years, haha.

      Especially the story of the old folk on the bench. The two ladies were having great fun pretending that the old chap was real whereas he was a remarkably real-looking sculpture!
      Enjoy your weekend

    Each and every one a treasure to remember for the day! I love those flowers, the food looks yummy, and aren’t those 3 on the bench the sweetest? Thanks for bringing a smile!

      And to bring a bigger smile, the old fella, whom the ladies called Charlie, is a very realistic sculpture!
