Fancy A Nibble?

R IS FOR?




RIDICULOUS!

A little plant slipped into my supermarket shopping basket yesterday - a dianthus to replace the one that is looking very forlorn at the allotment. Could not believe my eyes when I had a closer look at the label.

Race over to ABC Wednesday to find out more about the letter R.

  16. Chuckled at some of the comments above, especially Jo's! We live in such a nanny hand-holding state, it drives me mad! But then again there are people that go shopping in their pyjamas - allegedly!!

    Great post.

  18. This is getting spooky - I have recently blogged about crazy labelling - and just before that I blogged about visiting Hampton Court Gardens!

    I think I'll go and edit my May Contain Nuts post to link to this one: it's exactly the sort of thing I was talking about.
