Avec le chapeau, on dirait la reine Elisabeth...

It is all happening, Chris!
Chris: At an English summer fete. I confidently expect there will be murders in the shrubbery shortly. We do these sorts of things so well in the land of gentility..
Whats going' on !!
Chris: I liked this picture as soon as I saw it Frank. The reason being its incomprehensibility. It is an open garden day in the Cotswolds
It sure looks like a lovely day!!
Chris: High summer Elizabeth
Une belle reunion entre amis?
Chris: Visitors at an open garden event Claudine..

A lovely, idyllic scene- and it looks so merry old- English! I love your reply on Ray's comment!
Chris: Thank you Philine. My comment to Ray, as you have already guessed, refers to a particular genre of detective writing, of a sort attributed originally to Agatha Christie..
Was this just before they discovered the body of Lord Piffler and Hercule Poirot arrived?
Chris: Or top 'tec Trim, with his mac and trilby shoved down over his cunning eyes. No criminal, or indeed woman, is safe from his genius..

What the hell is going on … Audrey Weatherspoon has put fingers in her ears so that she doesn't have to listen to Mabel Woodstock.
Old Janice, with the stick, is laughing because Jack Meldrew has been told that he has to pay to get into the fete and he has no money.
John Simpson is trying to strangle himself.

Life goes on
Chris: You have summed-up this middle-England angst to perfection Ole Bean. No doubt you experiences of village life in Halesworth make this act of decoding as easy as falling off an Aga for you..

Is the woman in the hat putting her fingers in her ears as she does not want to hear the identity of "H" before Sunday's episode. It's a delightful setting; one of your estate properties?
Chris: Yes indeed. I was mixing, incognito, of course, with the minions one Sunday afternoon..

Oh, I see your dear lady friend from Bristol with her dog! I had the nick name 'Miss Marple' by some students.
Chris: Yes Philine that is my chum Ann with Mabel the dog

The lady in the hat could be saying, “ Look, these things are called ears. How am I supposed to know what is happening if you don’t tell me? I’m not a mind reader.”
Chris: If I converted this shot to mono and gave it the Blackdog treatment I might have something of a winner here Chad..
A scene like this couldn't be any more English, open gardens are always enjoyable occasions wherever they are.
Chris: Yes they certainly are Brian. I try to visit some every year if I can

So very civilised.
Chris: This was taken during the Barnsley, Gloucestershire, not Yorkshire, festival last year Anne

Somebody aught to make a documentary comparing these two places, the contrasts, I imagine, having never been to the Yorkshire example, would be immense..
they are enjoying the sunny afternoon Chris....petersmile
Chris: Yes they are Peter, thank you
