Verdant

When our tea pot came with a verdant cosy like this a photograph was called for.  It looked like something that would be used by a woodland elf. The Riverside Tea Room  in Ironbridge was a place we called in to more than once on holiday, not only for the tea, the cakes and the variety of tea cosies it is also attached to a crafts centre and I can spend hours in places like that.
Meanwhile down the road awhile this cat was keeping a look out for any construction vehicles
but this one was obeying the notice as it drove through the verdant suburbs of Jackfield.  As the quip goes "I love work and can sit and watch it all day" which is possibly why I like to take pictures of it. 
Being slightly nerdish I zoomed in to the vehicle on my computer, it turned out it was a special one, not the type or  make (Terex),  but the family company that owns it, McPhilips Construction celebrated their 50th anniversary in July this year. Their 250 staff enjoyed a day out but they also seem to have a more permanent commemoration of the anniversary with a '50' sign on the side of the vehicle.

An entry to ABC Wednesday, a journey through the alphabet, this week sojourning at V here

That is quite the cosy!!
Not sure if it is just laughable, or off-putting!
