Why, what sort of hips were you thinking of?

In other news, my mum likes my work! Yeah, I know, mothers are supposed to, but she's had A Small Wharf Conspiracy printed and framed, and now wants a copy of Stranded Blue Jelly. I don't think she'd do that just to be nice.

Since you're not into self-photography, I figured it was rose hips.

Also, I agree with your mother. You take very good pictures.

What, it isn't a word association game?

As I've said before, excellent macro work. Besides seeing them as they are, I also see glimpses of planets in orbit, showing the 'terminator' day-night line...

Herself kept roses for a long time, and is preparing to again. Her rose gardening interruption is due entirely to also owning goats and an old fence through which the bucks poked several holes, leading to goats on walkabout. Goats, BTW, very much enjoy roses. Tasty.

Mums can surprise you at times. My own uncovered some of my early figures which Dad (the artist in the family, other than me) had hidden so as not to shock Mum. Mum's comment to me? 'Those are very nice. Your Dad was keeping them safe. He should have framed them, I think.'

Mmm, rosehips! They make lovely tea (pick them at their ripest and dry them, then steep them in hot water when you want tea). They also make a really good syrup -- rosehip syrup was often given to babies and small children in the same manner as Ribena and for the same reason, namely that it's packed full of vitamin C.

Heh. Unfortunately these are at the Botanic Gardens. They get a bit irritable if you start picking the plants.

Oh, darn. I hope you can find some privately-owned ones!
