You work in California? That looks like California to me...
Isn't that a dead shrew down there?
That palm tree is all wrong. It's like the arboreal equivalent of hearing PJ & Duncan rapping, or Tom Cruise's irish accent in 'Far and Away'
Arboreally speaking, one has standy up leaves the other pointy down and who cuts the grass, the sheep?Photography a touchy subject this morning over at you know where, brings him out of hibernation though.
A tubby little man cuts the grass. He has a lawnmower that you can ride. A friendly chap, he waves from it.
Hmm curious combo. Are these trees in the same garden? I'd have a word with the gardener.
They told me if I voted for John McCain we'd see palm trees in England. And they were right.
Brit, there are around 40-50 varieties of Palm that will grown well in the UK. Washingtonia Robusta (hardy down to -6 degrees Centigrade) or Phoenix Canariensis (hardy down to -9 degrees Centigrade) or Butia Capitata (hardy down to -10 degrees Centigrade) or even Trachycarpus Fortunei (hardy down right down to -17 degrees Centigrade).to name but a few. sorry to rain on your parade, but palms have grown in the southern England especially for centuries.It has been unusually warm at night over the past 6 weeks, that does seem to be one prediction UEA got right.
OMG, you guys are hilarious! Brit, I subscribed to your blog bcse I love England - I'm in North Carolina-USA (where there are plenty of examples of the juxtaposition of palms and evergreens) - but what keeps me here is your wonderful posts, and the witty repartee amongst the members of your cast of regular followers. I love you guys! This one made me laugh out loud!!! Thank you to all - Worm, Willard, Gaw, Malty, and (mostly) Brit - for the delight you have brought to me!
Thanks Linda, you have impeccable taste. And you are quite correct with your 'mostly'.
Surely we must be proportionately more delightful?
