Cowart's Common Room
Picture in the Day

Uploaded Image

I have been asked for pictures of interiors but I know Cooers also like looking at pictures of gardens, so here is something that combines both. It was taken in the village of Peyre that nestles among the cliffs at the foot of the Millau Viaduct. Again it seems unoccupied. What do these people do in the afternoons?

Re:
Fennie's Avatar It's a lovely little scene when you look at it. As though junior leprechauns have been having shoe-making lessons. Do you see the little seats and the little tent? Then there's a wee little dance floor on which vests do no doubt occasionally become untucked and newly made shoes broken in as the dancing wheels to the accordion and the drum and the fiddle. Short-line dancing, obviously, otherwise you'd fall off the end. The railway runs close by - you can see one of the concrete pillars that carries something or other - and the leprechauns can leap from it on to the engine or the rooves of the carriages and ride into the night and the smoky darkness, far and wide to deliver their new boots and shoes and afterwards come home with pockets of gold to throw to their friends the water nymphs who hide in the deep waters of the Tarn that runs just the other side of the railway. It must be the only railway in the land with fairy folk on both sides. Now what else can we see? Yes, there's the pot in which gold will be buried at the end of the rainbow and, Rosie, it is clouding over in this mystical landscape so that soon it will rain and a rainbow will form in the sunshine and the pot will be taken out and hidden. And where are the leprechauns now? Why they are fast asleep under the spreading roots of this great tree (of species unknown unless it is a mysteria) under which no doubt you will find a rabbit hole and deep inside a little door. They may even have been drinking in the earlier sunshine for there's a vine in the picture, too, but without any grapes. But then it takes hardly any alcohol to get a leprechaun tiddly and then you can catch him and tweak the whiskers of his beard till he tells you where his gold is hidden. Yet he may not be telling the truth and they are wriggly as eels in the meantime. It's as like as he'll escape without telling you anything and make off with your watch as well leaving just a couple of overturned chairs and an empty tent and the turquoise waters of the Tarn, flowing ethereally by.
