Excellent colours and detail Alison.

If Janet is looking for fairies, tell her she’s in the wrong wood. They all hang out in Twigmore… So I’m told!

No....china mugs of tea!

We were near to janets wagon o' plenty...and we always take a fully stocked picnic and fresh hot tea....and it tastes sooooo much better when drunk from china mugs Smile

Once we had eaten we had our backpacks on .....and off we went in search of shrooms in the woods.

As an honorary, nay founding, member of the D&D Fan Club I feel obliged to add my support for this photographic memento of your picnic in the woods.

"If you go down to the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise
If you go down to the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every tog that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the D&D Club have their picnic."

Lol but it's a lovely shot .... I'm just tempted to draw little faces on them though Wink

The light and sharpness is fantastic and it seems as if they are both a little scared of the camera, hunched together like that - great character!
