One of the best acers in the entire world ; )

One of the best acers in the entire world ; ) (Acer palmatum (Japanese maple))

My lovely Acer pal Sangokaku yet another shade of green before the array of pinks, always gives out this girl, like a Geisha who retired young or a new Maiko who just decided to stand outside my door; )

S the T has this beautiful acer,
did'nt know quite where to place her,
decided to put her by the window,
reminds him of his time in Kyoto.

There once was a maiko girl from Kyoto
who didnt suit cus she was keen on auto
so she decided to see Stevie and pronto
and jumped into her Pinto (btw her religion was shinto)
Ok its a Ford, its all she could afford
and now shes here shopping for sushi at Tesco

That pretty acer Sango
Could almost dance the tango
But entwined its roots
around its boots
and fell down with a bang-o!!??

well I have a rather depressing half price but large tv lasagne (£1.76)
but I am thinking also I could make a pilaf : )
No work on at the moment but on the positive side I have lost half a stone

i need to lose half a stone.

pilaf always good, coleslaw also nice with lasagne as is garlic bread ~ lulu makes a fantastic garlic bread.
another thing that is nice is carrots grated and mixed with toasted sunflower seeds and mayonnaise.
