viewpoint, trade-in, parrots

Posted by Picasa Separate chimney pots for these starlings.

A neighbour sitting on her garden wall to do some weeding complains that if she bends over too much she has to visit the osteopath. So most of the time she pays someone to do it. "It's a sort of trade-in," she says; " At £7.00 an hour it's less expensive  than the osteopath."

Flower sellers tend to shorten parrot tulips to "parrots". We like  the dark red ones with green streaks  on their  petals. Two bunches in a vase by the window make up for another sunless day.
