Welcome to our 27th Graphic a Day in May! 😀
It’s Sunday again so let’s enjoy another John Thornton graphic. Please remember that there is a worldwide group watch of North & South starting June 1 and details can be found here: N&S Group Watch. I am planning to take part. Hope you can join in!
Today’s image and song recommendations come to us courtesy of Pospíšková Irena. Thank you so much for your contributions, Pospíšková Irena!

Bonus question: What do you think of John Thornton’s eyelashes?
