From Charitable Daffodils to Loot and Extortion
Just a few days ago life seemed to be all daffodils and blue sky. The arc of daffs in the phot0 were planted originally on behalf of the Marie Curie charity who offer care and support through terminal illness. Their symbol being the daffodil.
At the time of writing though it's now grey and raining - and I have a job to do - decorate our living room! So we headed off to Trago Mills Liskeard branch to buy paint and wallpaper.
They are housed in quite an unusual store, it's more like a big castle, with its own river, than a massive shopping centre.
Of course, when we arrived it was raining! So not many photos.
Over the years the original Trago owner, and now his son, have had clashes with authority. Their tongue in cheek response is to erect statues in their large grounds to make their opinions known. There are dozens of them.
For example the photo below is an opinion of UK's taxes - loot and extortion.
Another statue, below, is making a point about pillaging and plundering - now who would do such a thing ...
And finally a photo of the river and the store.
Oh dear decorating - what fun!
