Wunderkinder Forefathers at rest after a long day establishing things.
I discovered this old photograph of the Wimbledon Wunderkinder Forefathers [circa 1877] in the annals of our old and dusty library. It clearly shows the group resting after what must have been a long and difficult day establishing things, such as the Wimbledon College of Art, the world famous Wimbledon Waffle and of course the once loved [and now disgraced] Wombles of Wimbledon Common who it transpired where a lot more common than we were all initially led to believe. Anyway I think you’ll agree that these intrepid gentlemen portray the very essence of the Wunderkinders Pioneering spirit.
If feels like autumn, the air feels fresh and the yard is having yet another clean up. Here comes frank towing the garden to its new home for the year.
The summer veg has died back so if anyone has some new ideas as to what we should plant next…… get involved, get your green fingers out.
As the summer ends and the new academic year begins the air is full of nubile anticipation. The Wunderkinder Technical family are frantically getting the workshops ready to do it all again, greasing, painting, sweeping and talcum powdering all the relevant areas.
Frans rationalising his tropical wood pile into termite friendly and not so termite friendly piles, Pete plots the coming year to paper and Tim [the brilliant and exceptionally talented painting technician] scouts the planet for fresh pigments.
