I thought I would broaden my horizons with a floral upload here.
Unlike other flower uploads I have seen on site,I do not need an ID as I know what they are.
It is just an ordinary concrete post and a bit of high tensile steel chain !!

The mind boggles about what the block and chain are doing there. An intriguing juxtaposition well captured.

How sad! You're going all soft, Mick.
I could not name your rusty contribution but I recognise begonias, petunias and the leaf of a geranium.
But it is interesting how these disparate elements can sit in comfy close relationship, neither one overwhelming the other.

I'm impressed! Would never have guessed this was one of yours. The post top and chain sit so neatly within the frame, and I love the way the chain sinks into the bed of flowers. Arty-farty composition, Mick, but I love it.

Do I not recognise this scene?
Is that not the ball and chain that Jan uses to make sure you stay in the garden and do the weeding now and again?
I thought so.
At least she has allowed you the indulgence of a rusty ball.

Love the composition, Mick!

Bill
