During a visit to the Continent, we drove through part of Northern France, we made a stop in St Omer, often the first stop inland for many visitors to France, a quiet, unassuming and attractive little town, 43km southeast of Calais.
We wanted to stretch our legs. Walked through the lovely shopping-streets with some beautiful old houses and got to the market square.
On the corner, we saw the most attractive fruit and veg shop, everything looking very fresh.
I saw plaits of fresh garlic... I chose one, walked inside to pay for it when I saw the cheese-counter, full of spécialitées de la région...
I bought some of that too...
Although the garlic was wrapped in TWO bags, as was the cheese, and in the boot we had a zipped up 'cooling-bag' in which we stored our purchases...
From then on, each time we got into our car, we were greeted and treated by the pungent mixture of the combined 'fragrances!!!
What a laugh!

The cheese was delicious, the garlic... ahem, beautiful? ( the guys in the studio weren't so impressed!)LOL

It had lots of earth on the roots, I tried to vacuum it... but to no avail, so I gave up, and decided to incorporate it, shook it a bit more, this is the result...

thanx for your time and comments, greatly appreciated, M, (*_*)
