My boss, fr David, and I buy a fair amount of stationery (I love my job). This means that we’re sent a fair amount of special offers. One of them was for a pink ladies (sic) tool kit. It was free if you bought about £30.00 of stuff. How could I resist? We put an order together, and unfortunately it was delivered to the Regent, fr Richard.
David and I received an email which included the fantastic comment, “How many pink ladies do we need to repair exactly?”.
BTW – this photo doesn’t do justice to the day glow, Barbie pink, of the tools.
Dr Bones likes to pretend that she’s all Gothic, gloomy & dark…but she likes a bit of pink. So this is for her.
I managed to miss the peony at its best this year (but you can see it in all its glory in the pic on this blog I took last year). the wind and the rain have taken their toll.
The petals on the ground are fascinating though. I think they look like pink feathers, or maybe a party dress thrown crumpled to the flower. They are such a delicious coconut ice colour. I’d have loved a dress in that colour when I was an urchin.
