TAKE ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE a

"How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind."
(Bob Dylan)



























...This song needs sung again...

Plantago Lanceolata ('whip plantain') is a wild flower of childhood memory; the stems can be taken off at base, twisted round themselves and whipped up to catch the heads off, shooting them at an opponent.  We called it 'playing soldiers'. 

Taken with the 'Nik' on macro mode (in a high wind!).
