I love that Duck!...how are you feeling about the impending retirement John? you are so full of energy I can't imagine you not filling your time with all sorts of things.
So simple and nice.
The duck is brilliant - no adornment but regarding the green peacock - I am afraid it just looks like a lettuce to me.
Quackers over the duck.
That duck/marrow looks like it was grown for the purpose - I suspect fowl play...
Just a happy accident. I ate it for my tea.
Oh My Goodness you ate it ! ! ! !I hope it was as tasty as it looks.
You destroyed the evidence! Duck books into a hotel with a young model and immediately asks for a condom. Receptionists asks if he wants to pay now, and he says, "Put it on my bill."
Thats the spirit sue! X
If the duck wins, the prize should go to Mother Nature.
Where do i send her certificate?
As in previous years you have had some amazing entries, John. Truly astonishing. However, as the French say, that courgette duck is "simple yet stylish". The definition of (seemingly) effortless elegance. The epitome.To expand on Starting Over's perceptive and valid comment, namely that "the prize should to go to Mother Nature", I'd like to add that the prize should go to the one who recognizes form without feeling need to add to/alter anything.U
That duck is everything!
Love the duck, and the peacock and they are both in lovely restful, and cool, shades of green :-)
I told you it just takes vision.
Keep em comming x
You've got it. All you have to do is publish.
The duck is perfect........all it took was a discerning eye.
Both are wonderful!
Dear John, a blog post (mine) inspired by you, your verdict and waiting for you. Mum is the word.U
You astound me Ursula, you insult me one day then chat as though nothing has happened the next.. I shall look at your post out of pure opened eyed interest
That duck is just simple and genius! but I too am partial to peacocks.......
That duck would ever so beautifully adorn my dining room table!
The duck is perfection. The peacock is simple and pretty. I love them both.
The duck is a great observation. :)
My Granddad used to say 'love a duck'. I wonder where it originated? Perhaps it was a gentleman's way of saying something else.
First seen ( in print) was in james Joyce’s Ulysses
Two Blue Ribbons !This is more like what I think the contest is all about. I always seem to have embellish mine somewhat.. But I try to leave the basic veggie there without too much tampering.Both of these made my morning.cheers, parsnip and thehamish
These are both wonderful. There are so many good eyes here.
Each one you publish here seems more clever than the last. There are some clever bloggers out there, that's for sure.
John, you haven't told us all about the retirement bash you are having in your local village hall. The one to which we followers are all invited... You are planning on letting us all pitch tents in your garden... aren't you???? :-)
No bash..i will dissapear into the mist like a mysterious femme
Wales is not hot. Hot is Las Vegas, Nevada, this week where it has been 112 degrees Fahrenheit this week with 115 and even 120 in the near-term forecast. Wales is cool by comparison.
They are both great, but the duck has class.
A prize . . . for the duck!
All I see is duck. Nature is so clever.
