The colour does add to this version Moira, I know you love monochrome but I'm digging in for colour.

Shame the scarecrow didn't get rid of the snails. The coloured version is fun! Smile

Never seen kale (it is kale, isn't it?) with its own scarecrow before, Moira. How bourgeois.Smile
Prefer this colour version.

You're on form today, folks, thanks for some great comments. I've only had a few minutes on the site, we are supposed to be compiling a report on the condition of the Town Trail information boards. Some of them have disappeared and I don't think anyone has noticed...

I thought that was me for a moment then saw the couple and decided that's not Bill and Moira then I thought no it's Bill and Ben. Good stuff Moira.

I think he's just made a rude noise and they're each thinking it was the other!
