Lemons aren't the only fruit
I am not going to talk about the latest London murders.
Cro sent me this picture of a bit of stonework on a New York building which looks so strikingly like the pear-tree surround decoration that I've shown you a few dozens times, that it genuinely shocked me to see it.
I originally wanted H.I. to design my pear trees, but when I left her to it with a correctly proportioned sheet of paper, I returned home at the end of the day to find she had drawn a single pear, so I did it myself. I drew it out in about 15 minutes and I am very pleased that I have not knowingly seen the above, although I did visit N.Y. a couple of times, so it could be unconscious plagiarism. Put it this way, if I had been writing a medical paper and it bore such a resemblance to an already published one, I would be struck-off.
