It might cause you a few headaches if it grows to its full 20 metres :lol:

Re: Early Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Rain down here this morning, but a lot less than further east.
And up there on Snowdon it was snow.

Re: New kids on the block - New birds in the flock

As good as picking the first tomato or cutting the first lettuce, our new Cream Legbars, hatched 30 April, have started laying lovely blue eggs this last week.
Now we're just waiting for the first eggs from our 28 May hatch of Welsh Harlequin ducks.

Re: Oops - is this aimed at me? (Or you?)

I do hate the weasly word "elderly",
I have no objection to being old, though I still recall a conversation a year or two ago when I said to a Welsh neighbour "Dw i'n mynd yn hen" (I'm getting old). No she said "Dim hen ond hŷn!" (Not old but older).

Re: Congratulations to Primrose.

I've given Primrose another like, so she's up to 1001.
Anyone remember the old 1970s advert for 1001?

Re: Please can we have some more 'funnies'?

FINALLY! BLOND MEN JOKES: A blond man is in the bathroom and his wife shouts "Did you find the shampoo?" He answers "Yes but I'm not sure what to do...it's for dry hair and I just wet mine." A blond man spots a letter on his doormat. It says on the envelope "DO NOT BEND"...

Re: I'm in love.....................with ducks!

I suppose i'm being really gullable here but, are their eggs black?? They vary, OH, but they start by laying black eggs.
