Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 23rd June, 2018)
Brilliant Mick. I doff my cap!
I wouldn't mind a few shovel fulls of that lovely manure for my 'darling buds of May!'
There's nothing more likely to bring you good luck
Than a photo by Mick of a pile of horse muck!
Now where did I put that Lottery Ticket?
Ha Ha, made me smile anyway!
Technically the photo is of two piles of horse muck, the larger darker pile on the left is what is know as well rotted.
Sounds like Dtease has been bitten by the 'bug'-
A dose of rhyming slang at the heart strings to tug...
There's only one thing to cure this disease,
A bump on the head,or a swift kick on the knees !
The open gate certainly leads the eye towards yon splendid pile of pulsating soil conditioner - 'bucket loads' been written about the stuff.
An update to an earlier poem
I sat upon mi barrow
In the middle of a Newburgh road
Waiting for a Cart horse to deposit me a load
I sat there all that live long day
But the Cart horse never came
Now I'm sitting by a Standish field
And hoping for the same
I still need it it for mi Roses
'Cos they're still not very fit.
And I'm still convinced that what they need
Is a barrow load of.....horse manure.
Take deep breaths everybody, get some of this lovely country air ..
Delightful DTease,I have long admired that work.May I briefly restore a romantic tone with a verse called 'Skylarks'.
Over meadows yellowed in skies azure,
Above burnished fields of rape they wend
Like Apollos in the pollinated air,
Singing soprano in the sun they ascend
As flutes in heaven's orchestra.
V.B's cat is on the prowl, 'the bag' now quite unfurled
I've also heard it on the news; she's booked for Gardeners' World!
Cometh the man,
cometh the hour,
Cometh Mick covered in manure!
It's good to know that you are such an expert when it comes to horse droppings Mick. I'm sure that, in the future if anyone has any trouble with their horse muck you will be the first person they think of.
I was originally seeking to write an amusing verse myself but couldn't think of anything to rhyme with 'doff cap'.
Pity we don't have smelly telly or pictures. Surprisingly, at the stage it's at there's no smell, just good stuff.
On Gardener's World I'd love to guest on't telly-
No trouble at all to play catch the ball with Nigel and Nelly.
On Monty's cords I'd strike a match
Just as he straddles his cabbage patch,
His braces would ping,his shirt buttons would burst,his wellies would fly off his feet!
(Due to the infernal bubbling gas and heat.)
He'd tipple over twice and land in a trice -
On top of the muck-heap steaming,
Off I would go ,quick as a flash, a broad smile on my face beaming!
All because of Muck's Mick Heap!
If you were homeless, potless and witless, two of which I'll own up to being, I'm not saying which two, and it was minus 12 degrees in January, you could dig a hole in that lot, climb inside, and you'd be nice and warm. I'm not saying it would have the same appeal of course as a room at the ' Raffles ', but it would probably be a sight better than some of the transport digs that I've had the dubious pleasure of patronising over the years.
I've just typed the verification code rykyq into the box, and I daren't tell you what the predictive text has come up with. I have no means of preventing anyone from trying it for themselves of course.
They have stopped people from trespassing with the well placed "horse muck" or is it just BS.
Mick takes pictures of what he sees not what he's seen,he doesn't emulate others.
Mick , what a great credit you are to WW .
The huge amount of pictures you have put on , always creates discussion, debate, and interest , which is the heart of any open forum .The fact , like others , you take the time , will always hold great merit with me . Well done Mick and Thankyou
V.B's there! she's done the first, we'll see the show next week.
Then see her holding Nigel's paw, and beckon Nellie, sleek.
Very limited vocabulary has Alan. Seems to still enjoy Horlicks though.
Someone recommended I put some of this on my Rhubarb but I was most disappointed. Think I'll stick to custard in future!
