Great tyro 2020-06-03 2:18

Good morning Bev,

Well I never. I love your title but I have never seen a bun dance!

So sorry about that, but that was a line my Dad used to say. And, of course, your note also brings back lovely memories of childhood when a grown-up would hold a plucked buttercup under your chin to determine whether or not you liked butter!

But my goodness, what a glorious display of buttercups brightening up this whole field and making a beautiful foreground to the village houses. And what a beautiful place in which to live - you and Len are so lucky!

Two wonderful workshop pictures too - as soon as I saw the one of Trawden hall I suddenly thought back to Tissington Hall - that was a much grander place but at least we can see Trawden Hall in sunlight rather than through a rainstorm! Might try to look out some pictures of that place soon.

And a fine one of the lane too. And I can't recall having seen a green goose either - unless, perhaps, it was dancing with a bun. :)

Three wonderful photographs!

You take care.

Kind Regards,

Thank you for your warm, amusing critique, John.
Words can be such fun if you split them up.

Isn't if funny how sayings uttered by your parents are never forgotten.
When my brother comes over, I sometimes think it's like listening to my father all over again!

Tissington must be the wettest get-together that I have experienced ... oh, apart from one at Salford Quays when we got so wet running to the car park, Mariusz said he took his pants off in the car, because they were so wet and drove home in his undies!!!

Look after yourself and keep safe,
