BOUNTY

It’s that time of year again.

Blackberries

The hedges are full of ripe and moist berries, sagging under the weight of fresh goodness and screaming out fertility. There are hips and haws, fields of cereals waiting to be harvested, the last of the fresh tomatoes from the garden.

Mushroom

Toadstool

Mushrooms and toadstools are breaking forth from their hyphae of fungi and thrusting upwards, trying to stay hidden in woodland and amongst the ferns on the cliff top whilst defying gravity and high-fiving the daylight.

It’s very exciting of course …. very ‘earthy’ ….. but quite frankly I find the whole process very tiring so I’m intending to empty some of those blackberries onto a huge bowl of ice-cream, lounge on the sofa and instruct* Lo, she is a terrible Goddess to book some flights to Surfugal.

*When I say “instruct” this usually takes the form that some would say looks like asking really nicely.

    Oooo ….. I haven’t had a Bounty for ages …. *adds to shopping list just under yacht*

    Diane replied:

    ‘under yacht’ ???

    daddyp replied:

    It more a ‘wish list’ really if you’re going to be picky ……

    Diane replied:

    Oh that reminds me, I am off to Corfu sailing on Monday. Sorry I won’t be around…shall catch up when I get back.

    daddyp replied:

    [B***** f****** b******!!!!!!] …… oh how lovely for you ….. [F*****************!]

    [We’re off to Surfugal in a couple of weeks so I forgive you – can only manage 7 weeks this time though]

    Diane replied:

    OK you win – 7 weeks in Surfugal definitely tops 1 week in Corfu…

    daddyp replied:

    I think we’d swap actually …..

    Earthy indeed. Thrusting hips and haws? And as for your MoTD…..no wonder you’re tired, but if you must spend so much time in Brighton…….

    daddyp replied:

    I did check my spelling very carefully writing this …. I don’t want to be misunderstood …. tee hee

    gitwizard replied:

    But did you put enough thought into the title………
    are you sure there is no possibility of a mutiny…..?

    daddyp replied:

    ‘Heaving Haws’ was considered …… very briefly.

    i’m impressed with the toadstool*. are there tiny people living in there? with miniature cats and dogs? teeny-tiny furniture, little newspapers, and eensy-weensy bowls of cereal, covered in molecular-sized berries?

    *this spills over into my personal life as well, which is why i should remain single for the rest of my days…

    Lo,TG replied:

    You haven’t been nibbling on those toadstools, have you, df?

    daddyp replied:

    Don’t give up hope Daisy …. somewhere there is tiny man with your name on him.

    daisyfae replied:

    no. i have U.S. television “news” programs which provide all of the hallucinatory substances i need…

    daisyfae replied:

    and regarding the teeny tiny men? one? ONE?!?!? but i’m trying to collect the whole set!

    daddyp replied:

    Ah, the willing pawns to obey your every whim …. sounds familiar ……

    gitwizard replied:

    Are you trying to sell a film idea involving a young beauty and her 7 curiously named pointy hatted tiny friends ?

    daddyp replied:

    Dave Dee, Dozey, Beaky, Mick and Tich? Hang that doesn’t pan out – particularly taking into consideration that Dave Dee was one person …… I think …..

    gitwizard replied:

    Wasn’t it Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grubb…..er, and Captain Flack.

    daddyp replied:

    It might have that collection of pole dancers I suppose ….. *scratches head*

    I like your plans for those berries. I’m wondering how your “instructions” are going. 🙂

    daddyp replied:

    The instructions have been carried out to my satisfaction …… *looks manly* ……. *looks over shoulder* ……… phew, the TG has gone shopping which leaves me a little longer to be delusional …..

    I can’t find the fields of Cheerio’s anywhere on the mainland. Are they close to the land of Milk & Honey?

    daddyp replied:

    Very …. and that’s where you get Havannas from heaven as well …….

    I had the same thought as Diane (us Norvern lasses need to stick together)

    I am so upset because the field behind my house that we are not allowed to access is full of wonderful fruits (apples, damsons, blackberries etc) and they have fenced us in so we can’t get on there to pick them (bloody school developers ) … ok rant over … could you snd a food parcel pwweeese 🙂

    daddyp replied:

    Visitors for lunch tomorrow – I fear that everything will get scoffed ….. could send the washing up I suppose ……

    I’m screaming with fertility, but I don’t think that counts.

    I think you’re beyond viagra daddyp

    daddyp replied:

    Pulley and hoist and splints and quick setting concrete is another solution of course ….. you should know that being medical an’ all young Nursey …….

    Sadly I don’t have any time to spend in Surfugal, but if I were to boil those mushrooms into a dipping sauce for gingernuts, I may be able to get there without ever leaving the kitchen… Or find that a quick trip to the ER is in order… **looks for a coin to flip**

    Ah, the windmills of our minds ….. or in my case, the windmills in my undercrackers ……
