At The Allotments 4/5

We paid a quick visit to the local allotments during an Open Gardens weekend recently, I found it quite a good place for a variety of pictures.

We had a chat with this man and his son as earlier his mother-in-law had been there who Maureen knows quite well.

I caught this shot of father and young son working together almost by accident, I glanced up and just grabbed the shot.

Totally unposed, best sort of shot imho
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tony, thanks for your comment.
Helping his Dad! I bet they would like a copy of this Brian
Brian Walbey: I thought that Bill but these days they might be as likely to be upset you took the picture of their child as pleased to receive the photo.
Nothing like teaching them the importance of fresh and home grown while they are young.
Brian Walbey: This lad did seem quite keen to help his dad, better than hanging out somewhere I reckon.
two generations at work, nice capture
Brian Walbey: If I'd taken it earlier Grandma was there as well, 3 generations.
Digging for victory eh Brian.
Brian Walbey: Or getting the spuds up Chad.
My kids used to complain about having to work in the garden until I have them a section of their own. You've got to start them young.
Brian Walbey: I had a small area in our garden for myself, sadly the novelty wore off and now I am not a gardener at all, but I do really enjoy gardens for all that.
''Get weeding son''

Nice bit of father/son bonding
Brian Walbey: I felt they bonded well together Richard.

Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Derek.

Good to start them young. let;s hope the boy can enjoy proper food before he discovers McDonalds et al.
Brian Walbey: McDonalds veggies, such as they are, couldn't compete with home grown on an allotment.
I love to see children outdoors in the fresh air. Lovely image. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn.
Nice intimate moment, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I thought that Tom, many thanks.
Lovely father son moment, I miss mine doing things like this smile
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Linda, at least our son lives in Shepshed so we see him quite often, and our daughter is only at Long Eaton, not too far away.
A lovely father/son moment Brian. well captured
Brian Walbey: Thaksn janet, that's why I took it at that time.
Real quality time between father and son, excellent series Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much John.

That's so nice, and one young chap who will always know vegetables grow in the ground rather than just appearing on the supermarket shelves as if by magic.
Brian Walbey: I guess there are some children, in big cities neither know wwhat vegetables look like or what fresh ones taste like, how sad.
