Painter's Parasol in Pool Pandemonium.



I'm used to finding Toads, Lizards, and Grasshoppers in the pool, but to discover our largest green parasol in there, yesterday, was a first.

Many years ago we were out with friends when a sudden storm stole a slightly smaller parasol; it was never seen again. You'd think we'd have learnt.

It must have been a sudden gust; otherwise it had been just another very hot day!

  1. Oooh, your place looks so lovely, Cro! (apart from the parlous parasol protuberance in the pool.) The blue sky, the sparkling water, the tower, the plants, (and the orange duckie!) Heaven!

  4. You must search the garden and surrounding areas immediately!

    Mary Poppins dropped of the Toulouse radar at 05:30HRS this morning after a brief S.O.S. radio call about a bird-strike. The last thing air traffic control heard was "oh merde ... je fallez into Monsieur Magnon's pool ..."

  9. Thank you for the wonderful morning chuckle, Mr. M.
    I had my patio umbrella lifted by a very bad thunderstorm several years ago and it ended up several blocks away right in the middle of the Union Pacific railroad tracks and it did not make it. It was in a million pieces... and no I did not get a replacement.
    Have a wonderful week.

  10. I thought perhaps it was a still life you were going to paint. Parasols and pools.

  11. Well. at least THIS one didn't blow too far from home. And if it starts raining violets or money, you're all set to catch some in the umbrella.
