removal of a triffid and other things

Today a large plant that I didnt like was removed from the garden opposite the bedroom. tractor and 2 men were required. They actually managed to do it without making too much mess. I am pleased as it has annoyed me for years and has got larger and larger. Yesterday I went to Adelaide and had lunch at a friends place, lovely to catch up with people I havent seen for ages but the drive up and back which once I did regularly I now find rather tiring. We also walked along the cliff top and as usual you get a photo of the sea, it was a lovely morning. George is finding he can get into trouble, pitiful mews came from the kitchen where he had somehow managed to get a front leg stuck under the frig, as he had shot John's glasses under there yesterday and we didnt find them for ages, it has become a favorite place. He might think twice after I rescued him. tomorrow he goes for his first innoculations that might be interesting.

Oh do hope you are not going to have trouble with that little chap, hiding Dad's glasses under the fridge!
Always best to remove 'triffids' from the garden if they annoy you - it will have let more sun and air in (help the weeds to grow more quickly!)
As usual, lovely sea shot.

I've never heard of a 'triffid' but we have shrubs and trees like that -- the ones that take over everything, block out the sunlight, etc. Its always lovely to look outside after a removal to see how the site has changed.

I'm delighted to hear that you had a 'triffid'. I fondly remember John Wyndham's book from so long ago. I guess not too many folk have heard of them...the book came out in the 50s. We are showing our age.
