The scarecrows by the bus stop are still there a week after the rained off mid-summer bonfire. Sometime in the last couple of days a local wit has decked them out with strands of fresh garlic - a reminder to any passing tourists that we are in the garlic growing centre of the universe. Long time readers of the blog will remember that Madame Bay is brought up in the local tradition of adding a little food to her garlic. Perhaps that is why she has never had an ailment or a days sickness in her life, that is until the young locum came along. Garlic as aphrodisiac ?
To friends and blog friends in the US a very happy July 4th holiday. I hope it's the sort of day when you can all ' Let music swell the breeze and ring from all the trees'.
