RDP Thursday: Seminal

The cucumber seeds fought their way through the earth and were proud to have produced their first fresh green leaves. They were dreaming of the day when they would produced their own seeds in a cucumber.

Then the shaggy mane mushroom appeared and laughed at the cucumbers. “You are really quite pathetic. You are only here because someone planted your seeds. Look at me, all my own work. No-one plants my spores. I grow because I am. We are the professionals in the growing world, you are still the amateurs and will be eaten. I will return again, but no-one knows where. I do it all on my own.*

RDP Thursday: Cling

I suppose if you are born with such feet, you find it easy to cling. Who do the feet belong to?

The cockatoo belongs to my son’s boss. He takes him to work with him, of course in a cage. Otherwise he is perched on the shoulders of the boss and now and again goes for a fly around outside. Here he is examining his claws and exercising the cling effect.

RDP Thursday: Sumptuous

I tend to cook sumptuous as I have a family to feed, especially at week-ends when everyone has more time to eat and enjoy. This is my pork roast before it hit the oven, so it is not yet cooked: meat, veg and a few herbs (grown in the garden of course). The bones are also there for a good sauce and they also have their advantages when cooked.
