HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 20:51

On the way there we came upon this just after it had happened  http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/video_a_lorry_has_overturned_on_the_a12_in_woodbridge_spilling_21_tonnes_of_chicken_litter_onto_the_road_1_3666445

A member of the public had helped get the driver out and he didn't appear too badly hurt thank goodness; the police were just arriving on scene so we got out of the way and left them to it.  

Still one heck of a mess and the main road was closed northbound when we returned after our picnic - diesel and chicken manure - an unpleasant mixture 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello folks - I'm back after a lovely but tiring day.  

We went out to the coast to Orford and walked along the riverbank towards Orford Ness.  It was a beautiful day and the sea lavender was out all along the saltmarsh along the riverside - DD braved the mud to pick me some samphire for supper tomorrow

 The sea lavender was gorgeous.  Afraid the pics are a bit fuzzy - the light was so bright it was hard to see to get the focus right

Don't remember them being widespread, but I do remember 'pockets' and we used to look out for them when on holiday in Wales and Devon - but then I'm remembering from a very long way back ............. 

I also seem to remember that at one time it was thought they were cross-breedng, but then it was discovered that some greys do have a reddish tinge to their fur - we had greys at work and some of them were 'ginger-ish'.

OL - I think the yellow ones are slightly sweeter - but others disagree - but they do look prettier on the bush and the plate

" To be honest I don't understand why this debate keeps on cropping up...."

 

Some people are naturally provocative, sometimes intentionally and sometimes in all innocence  .......... I tend to ignore threads that seem calculated to cause upset ......there are forums where such discussions are appropriate, but this is primarily a gardening forum rather than for the discussion of the ethics of culling wildlife etc. 

No offence intended to anyone

Sounds good to me Panda - he'll come galloping to the rescue in the nick of time just as you are about to be swallowed by a quicksand   

Has anyone noticed how you don't get quicksands on tv any more 

Bekkie, when the next batch of yellow courgettes are ready I'll make a courgette, sage and walnut quiche - will that do?
