|Daffodils in Tyndall Ave, Bristol|
The first signs of spring are the daffodils of course. Yeah, daffodils as in William Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud"?? Can't remember the full poem except for the last two lines ...
and then my heart with pleasure fills
and dances with the daffodils
Sea of yellow daffodils everywhere. I was tempted last spring to dig out some bulbs from the park and plant them in my garden. Ada ka?! Just found out that people have been fined for doing that! Kah! Kah! Kah!
|Pix of a carboot sale by Mark Murphy|
Carboot as in the back of the car?? Well, maybe in some places, I don't know. But the ones that I have been to, are held in large open spaces such as in the picture above. Normally carboot sale starts in the morning and ends in the afternoon. Sellers normally sell their unwanted goods for a small price. I normally pay from 50 p to 2 pounds for carboot items. Anything more than 2 pounds - bargain time! :D
Carboots are for bargain hunters. Sometimes, you do find branded items (like K. Rose's Gucci boots!) - second-hand, but otherwise in mint condition . With my limited budget, brand-new designer items seem light years away, but then again, I'll settle for vintage, anyway! :)
