Mr Jones.

By PatriciaWilson      
years ago I studied commercial art at Chester College of Art. One day the tutor didn't turn up and the principle, Mr Jones, came into the classroom as told us all to go home, take 5 objects and arrange them until we were completely satisfied with the balance of light, shade, colour and reflection.
That was it.
It sounded easy...
So nearly forty years later...I think I've got it.
For you, Mr Jones Smile
Thank you.

Interested to hear your opinions as always. Thanks for looking, P,X

It's still a great exercise to do when the weathers not good, and easier on the back than re-arraigning the furniture, LOL!

Very well arranged Patricia . Just love that dish . What I wouldn't give for a bag full of those Chilli Peppers . I have such a good recipe for chilli jelly/jam.

Not heard anything about the herbs !!

Thanks Mavis. The herbs finally went in the post a couple of days ago, third time lucky. Hold up was due to goat trying to clime in car (see previous upload), motorway being blocked by large flock of sheep, and me having to listen to the exciting news about Maria's hen laying it's third double yolker in a month!!!
The post shuts at 1pm...still, they're on there way nowSmile

Thanks everyone, really appreciate the comments.
