Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow

bb-fs2In a Pruning Mood

Whenever I go outside to garden (cue sounds of my mother laughing in disbelief, at this point), I’m reminded of Roald Dahl’s story ‘The Sound Machine‘, which is why I got rid of all the previous owner’s lovingly tended roses when we bought this townhouse.

That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I scared myself, Julie, haha – and saw my husband through the window with a WTF look on his face, when I was taking it. He’s still here, though, so he obviously likes living dangerously ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Yes, Monica – ‘Tales of the Unexpected’. They are wonderfully weird ๐Ÿ™‚
      There is also ‘My Uncle Oswald’. which is a bit on the seedy side: This summary from Wiki – “In his 1980 review, Vance Bourjaily said, ‘What can be said is that “My Uncle Oswald” provides four or five hours of effortless reading and some amusing scenes, mostly of the kind film makers have taught us to call soft pornโ€”so soft, indeed, that at times they turn out almost fluffy. The tone is that of a gentleman telling ribald anecdotes to his male guests after dinner. The leer is civilized… the dialog gets mean and raunchy, but the physical detail is kept decorous…. Mr. Dahl’s guests are not invited to vicarious orgy, then, nor will they hear a disguised lecture by a wicked satirist of morals and manners…. Summer reading.’ You have been warned.
