Going Home – Watercolour

How many of you like doing the weekly shopping? Me neither, but it is a necessary evil. Staying in a small village means we have to drive to the outskirts of Edinburgh to get sustenance for the coming days. This is the scene, as we returned home on Friday. I often look at the trees which line the main road and they were looking great, set against the failing light. This is copied from a photo taken as we approached the turn off to Ratho and, in case you wondered, I was not driving. We have an unwritten rule that whichever one of who paid the food bill gets to sit in the passenger seat, trembling at the realisation that we have just supported the economy – again!
