No, not onesies  (though in my young day we used to call them 'combinations'!) this is THREESIES - Carmi's challenge over at written inc for photos of three of a kind.   I had to dig into my archives for these - hope you enjoy them.   Follow that link to see what others have come up with!

1940's hats on show at a '40's weekend a couple of summers ago.   Don't you just love them!

Horse Chestnuts, definitely not edible, commonly called conkers.

Sweet Chestnuts, which are edible, though these aren't what you might call plump!

And lastly, three visiting Canada Geese on the lake in our park.   We haven't seen any Canada Geese for the last two years, as a very aggressive pair of Mute Swans have made their home here and see off anything bigger than a Mallard which ventures to land on the water!   In fact, the few geese that do fly over never even bother to land - they take one look at the swan and go away!   Which I think is a pity.

Gilly great threesies! I like them all, and I bet that 40's weekend from the first photo was a blast!

Wonderful photos! I love the hats, reminiscent of what the young Royals wear now! And the Canada geese, well if you would like some, we have plenty!

Those mannequins have swan-like necks!

P.S. We don't have any Canada geese right now, the lake is completely frozen over. But you can have Michèle's when they come back in a few months!
