A quick trip to our local Garden Centre for some winter pansies for my patio pots (well, I decided I must get out more!) gave me a lot of amusement.
When I saw all the little plants standing in rows with their labels sticking up I was reminded of the classrooms at my high school, long, long ago! All our desks were in nice straight rows, and slouching was definitely not allowed!
But these little plants were obviously the teacher's favourites!
Bit of lolling around here, don't you think?
No trouble at all with these stalwarts. Probably the older ones designated prefects, to keep the lower classes in order!
It was great fun at the Garden Centre - they were getting out their Christmas displays, and I was greatly taken with these jolly Santas.
Though I do think its a great shame that Christmas has been taken over by 'Santa' and there is nothing to show that it is a celebration of Jesus' birth. Many children nowadays probably hardly know the lovely Christmas stories. I know the shops want to appeal to all, but does the real meaning of the word 'Christmas' have to be erased altogether?
