How do trees come into your life?

Yew wood was needed to provide the wood for long bows and to meet other needs for strong flexible timber - because of their toxicity it made sense to grow the yews in the churchyards as they would be away from grazing animals.  

As the need for yew wood waned there were fewer yews planted in churchyards and the only ones planted in the grounds of more recent churches were planted for tradition and aesthetic reasons.

Good morning all   Jolly windy here this morning, and mild 12.9C  

It's my son's birthday today - I'm going to drive down to Suffolk to visit him this morning - his friends are arranging a bit of a do this evening. 

Can KEF not watch Strictly on iPlayer?  or is she too busy sticking pins into her OH?


Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

Mike - The questionnaire is seeking information from people whose gardens flood from time to time.  The first question asks whether your garden has been under water recently - if you answer 'No' then you are told that the rest of the questions are not relevant.  Quite straight forward and absolutely nothing to do with double-barrelled names nonsense or any other imagined prejudice
