ABC Wednesday - N is for...

...Not in Use

This is the sign that adorns our loo door up at the allotment for 5 months of the year. Whilst we're lucky to have a water supply, it's turned off in November for the winter to prevent burst pipes and leaks. It's only just been turned back on owing to the cold spring we've been having.

For other ABC Wednesday pictures hop on over to Mrs Nesbitt's Place.

  2. The play of light and shadow in this image is great! I'm sorry your loo is not working for that many months, but as a viewer, I've definitely benefitted from the situation.

  9. I know where all the restrooms are--and which ones to avoid.

    Do you know much about growing nasturtiums? Josie in Vancouver is wondering.

  10. Funny picture! In the US, though, the sign would read "out of order." Knowing me, I would see this sign and think it meant "unoccupied" and walk right in. I'll have to remember this one.

  15. I guess the balmy tropics of Cricketts lane account for the continuous supply of water over winter on site. Or could it be I just got lucky making the decision to leave the water on !!
