thistle..., beef, sleeping cat

Posted by Picasa...explodes.
In the language of the supermarket, the label "Slicing Beef", without other qualification, signifies tomatoes of above normal size.

Under the broad leaves of the green cauliflowers, called Romanesco, a cat lies curled up asleep in dappled shade. The reflected lights of the discarded DVDs, which I have hung above the patch to keep pigeons off, dance across its white and orange fur.

I've often wondered about those dangling CDs. A repertoire, made public, of what the gardener doesn't like?

One of mine- clearly the most effective in keeping pigeons off - is a promotional DVD containing the first two episodes of the TV series, Spooks.
