We came across this delightful plant centre today. No frills, no cafe, no toilets, no gift shop – just plants and compost. Really good plants at that and all at very good prices. It’s a lovely family run place called Shirley’s. Shirley herself is an incredibly fit and healthy woman with the clearest eyes and skin I have seen on anyone for a long time.
I just love all these signs, made out of anything that will take some text. I mean, why throw away an old cupboard door when you can use it for a sign?
I especially love the rusted up old ice cream cart – ice creams haven’t been 6 pence for years!

I couldn’t think what to post for this week’s challenge, then I realised that I see these two buildings every day…
An abandoned bungalow in my village, it looks so sad.
And this delightful edifice is what I can see outside my window while I am at work. I have looked at this building for well over 15 years and people wonder why I am fed up working here!!!
