HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 13/11/2016 at 14:36

I am currently bringing the pergola back into shape. The beech from the hedge has got too thick for the trimmer so it has been sawed. the honeysuckle was an almighty mess, so it has been murdered,leaving the main stems on the uprights. Just the wisteria bit to do, then a huge pile of shredding which will wait for another day.

Wonky? Did they teach you to cut out old and diseased wood first, then crossing branches, then adjust to shape, or the usual lollipop style that seems to be the council system around here? There are even magnolias that have been ruined by lollipopping.

So who's voting for red Edd?

He clodhops around, and then gets voted through. Same as Honey G on x factor I suppose. Hang the prerequisite that pop stars can actually sing.

One of my favourites. Me face to face with a big spotty fish. He was definitely looking at me. Probably because I had forgotten a snorkel when we jumped in and I was spluttering around.

Very.  What you can't tell, it is in an underground cave. We dived through an underwater entrance, surfaced, took off the kit, and walked through to the pools at the back. The shrimp are blind, as they never see light. There are flashlight fish in there as well, but they were harder to photograph. You switch off all the torches, and they emerge from hidden corners, all you see are the pouches beneath the eyes glowing. very weird.
