Does it?

Today we're going to address a question that has been with us since forever. It's a difficult question to answer and one that has been known to send grown men crying for their Mum, dive for cover, head for the hills or at least make their eyes water just a tiny bit.

It's the burning question that at least half the world population has been asking since the dawning of time and that the other half has been studiously avoiding to answer.

What burning question is that, you may well ask. Is it of the utmost importance? Has it anything to do with the meaning of life, or perhaps with world peace?

No, none of that malarkey, I am, of course, referring to this age old question:



Does my aster look big in this?

Well, does it?

It looks fine. Believe me. In fact, I've never seen a finer looking aster. Now let's go. We're going to be late.

Cute aster!

Frances said...

Hi YE, good lead in! People have been writing about the big asters, I am feeling of little consequence that mine is not big. The song should be rewritten to go like this: I like big asters I will not lie...... rap beat inserted here. ;->

So Size does matter!
Wow your post has certainly given great comfort to people obssessed with size: size is an illusion lying in the eyes of beholder:-)

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Size isn't that important
:-) Pretty Aster though...and nice tiny vase. LOL Tyra

Annie in Austin said...

Good one, Yolanda ;-]

There may also be a lesson here about the effects of wearing pants (or perhaps you prefer trousers?) that are two sizes too small.

Yes, it is the new green house you spotted (should have translated, but was lazy this time :). We finally got the roof this week, three weeks too late. Now we continue building, but there are so many things to do. I guess we'll continue until next spring... :D

Have a nice weekend! Karin
