The frogs have arrived


4 Wishes
by Just Nan

Not the best photo, but maybe you can just make out the frogs, they are those green pointy things, with curly legs underneath. I think this is getting a bit big now to photograph the whole thing. Next time I'll just take a pic of summer. I got a lot more done than I thought I would.

Something has been puzzling me. Last night I went into the city centre to pick dd up. It was about 11pm, and having just collected her we were driving down the dual carriageway, when suddenly I spotted all these birds. At first I thought they were seagulls, then I realised you just don't see birds flying around at that time of night. As we got nearer, the traffic lights changed to red, and we had to stop, the birds were trying to settle down on the other side of the carriageway, outside the railway station. These birds - quite a number - were white doves! Then I thought - well it's Valentines Day, maybe someone is being romantic and proposing, the traffic lights turn to green, and we drive home. I just need to know what happened, was it a romantic proposal - did she say yes?

A flock of Doves - more than 10, probably nearer 20, is not something you usually see at that time of night in the city centre - is it? Maybe it is, maybe I just need to get out more!

I don't ever remember seeing a flock of doves in my whole entire life! I'd love to know the answer to that one too.

I am so glad you haven't really got the frogs at your house. But I really live your 4 wishes and you have stitched it up so quickly as well.
Love

When I saw the title of this thread I thought I was going to read that you were having to unpick some stitching LOL. 4 wishes looks great. I live close to the city centre here in Swansea and I can't remember ever seeing a flock of doves - very curious!

That would be my guess too... a proposal, or a wedding perhaps?

Your Just Nan is looking great!

That's a strange thing happening at that time of the day.
Nice priogress on 4 Wishes.

You had me worried with that title, but those are the right kind of frogs!
Don't know about the doves, romantic gesture or John Woo movie, who knows
