We occasionally go on Mystery Tour outings, the mystery being "Will the bus come?". We have a bus stop near our home, and the bus comes once an hour.
Scotland allows travellers from the age of 60 to travel free on buses all over Scotland, so the 9.30 a.m. bus is often like a noisy morning cocktail party with happy older passengers setting out for the day and chatting to their friends while any younger paying passengers look down at their smart phones.
We start with Holly Apple waiting at the bus stop.
Is the mad chicken waiting for the bus too? Or is he just out for a walk? It's a mystery.
The flower looks as if it is running late.
The caterpillar is an old favourite. He is just passing by on a mission of his own.
Finally adding the landscape brings the picture to life.
HOLLY APPLE SAYS "WHERE IS THE BUS?"
