Stoop and scoop

....in a headscarf, of course.

The Companion - or as I prefer to call him in real life, The Gardener - takes his camera everywhere and comes home, after a day of trying and largely failing to keep up with the mad Spring growth rate of lawns and hedges, with all sorts of interesting pictures.


He has been working in a little village, where residents have created life-sized figures in various outfits and poses outside their shops and homes, in celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Some look like your average scarecrow, but others are rather more inventive.

Here you are, courtesy of The Gardener:


Just an elderly lady in rather posh wellies, cleaning up dutifully after her little dogs.


Perhaps not just any old lady.....


Could it be.....?


Oh. My.

You are lucky to have such an excellent Royal Correspondent!!

We are amused.

June said...

Wouldn't "a lady of advanced years" be a little better than "an elderly lady"? :-o!

Frances said...

You are sounding a bit " Lady Chatterley" here!! When are we going to see this lovely man? You are teasing us.

Oh Rachel! Absolutely priceless. I have stitches in my side just laughing!
Corgis of course must be in the picture! But I agree with 'June'...
One should always be respectful when speaking of one's Monarch...
Do we get to peek at the 'unveiling'?
Please Mr. Gardener!!
Rachel, ex-RAF hubby wanted to comment on your photos yet again. You have an eye for detail! How about a book??
Hugs to Flossie (and Tosca, and Millie,...)

I thought "What sort of a man takes photos of a lady in such a pose?".
A man who knows that it would make you laugh and that you would show the photos to us as well!

I must be the only one who got a bit creeped out by the bag-headed lady... it's a bit "Silence of the Lambs", innit?

This deserves to "go viral."

Brilliant and even more inventive than our local craft shop which has a window display of a knitted Royal Family which had me in embarrassing kinks of laughter in the high street the other day.
