We are hosting a symposium here this week, there are eight on the course and six have come on the  course before, these people often become good friends and we all look forward to the week, it also means that there is a high chance I am going to get a gift or two which I am always happy about, I love getting gifts and one of the gifts I got this time is so sweet, when I saw it my dear Grandmother came to mind, the bright colours reminded me of her garden, she is old now but still gardening, something that has given us a great bond over the years. It is a rather gay (in more than one way) looking biscuit jar for a vegetable gardener.
