and I will be your guide through this
Chrys an' the Mum Show (not a registered trademark name) that is on here at my greenhouse in the park. I know, the signs plastered all over town just say MUM SHOW, I have lawyers working on that.
Keep up and take photos, but do not touch the flowers, because they are art and well, I said so.
This year's theme is Autumn Harvest.
See how this truck that looked like scrap metal in the field has been transformed by the addition of a few dozen pots of pretty mums onto its bed? I have to guard it from stray squirrels who think it might be a bed of roses and set them straight.
Now inside, my kitties, and feast your eyes.
Don't mind the cow, she is tame and friendly.
She even has a pet chicken. There is a treat if you can guess the correct number of mums covering that cow.
Did you know that there are over a hundred and fifty different varieties of mums? No, well try telling your friendly floral buyer that at your local grocery store.
And see all the farm implements decorating the walls, some of them even have notices telling you young city folk what they were used for. Now you can feel thankful that you have more advanced tools to work with.
That is my loft up there, where I keep track of everything a good barn cat keeps track of.
Okay, I know, closeups of the pretty, pretty flowers... (licks paw, while waiting)
Keep up, we're going throught the bit where they try to sell you stuff, but we'll hurry on through to the tea room, where these cheerful and hardworking ladies (wearing great big corsages) will serve you tea or coffee (with a snack). Darn, looks like that bus tour of seniors just left.
If you find out who made these interesting tea cosies, let me know, because if I ever get a day off, I might like an evening with them...
Oooh, look, turtles!
yeah, that mouse you are holding onto? you know, I'm a barn cat and can see it? I'll let it live so you can use it to biggify the photos...
There will be more photos every day this week on Sightlines
