they've ruined the woods near my house. Chopped down over 70 trees to put a path through. frown

Why do they do things like that? I'm sure people were quite happy to just ramble through the woods without any defined path. It'll look better when the bare bits grow grass and some wild flowers next year, less stark.

Oh, such great and wonderful photos this month. I've been so frustrated lately. It seems every time I log on, my signal is so bad that I can see what everybody is writing but I'm not getting any of the photos. Finally got to see the last few weeks of photos today.

This storm we were headed into the other day was a little scary. Thankfully, by the time we got there, it was mostly just a few drops of rain and a little wind.

That is one scary looking storm.

My rose arch tha I put in last year to replace the old apple tree that fell down is coming along nicely now. Should be completely covered by the end of this season

Sheep ^*$%. Lots of it. There's another pile around the other side too.
For eighteen years the sheep have been going through that shed a couple of times a year and when they 'go' it goes through the grating and collects underneath so I've taken it upon myself to clear it all out. I'm up to about 400 wheelbarrow loads now. crazy [/URL]

Umm, is there any practical use for this - fertiliser or something, or is it just a big heap of....

You could come over here and drop the lot on Maiden Castle in Dorset. I visited it about twenty years ago and all I remember of it is a carpet of sheep droppings.

Yes, I used to live not far from there, and it was always like that, a few more tons wouldn't make a lot of difference.

Pretty much it's just a big pile! What happens is the sheep go into the shed and once they're shorn they go down a chute and walk out into those yards you see at the back so with all the years of crap there it was getting too low for them to walk out properly.

We hope to put in a lawn when it warms up so will use a small fraction of it on that and in the vege garden and that's about it! When the other half gets around to it he'll shift it with a loader.

Great photo - I wanted one but it was too cloudy here to get a good shot.

We had the male and female pheasant out together this morning, which doesn't happen often.

Somebody yarn-bombed the trees in a neighbouring suburb (Bassendean, Western Australia).

RHS Gardens at Wisley was full of roses in bloom when I visited today. So many different varieties to choose from (sigh!), but I thought I would pick a cheerful colour to brighten up everyone's day smile

Wow, that is pretty cool, Martin and that yellow rose is gorgeous, Plodd!

This was the view the other side of the moon the other night. Looked like the tree was on fire.

I love that Martin. I do like it when an effort is made to make public buildings interesting, not just concrete boxes.

Another one of my resident pheasants - the males really are beautiful birds.

Love that Copago (I think we posted at virtually the same time). That is a spectacular shot.

The penguins in Antarctica sent a storm NZ's way at the end of last week. Very heavy snowfalls in some areas but Timaru just got a few flakes, Tekapo (just over an hours drive inland) had drifts between 1.5 and 2 metres. Other places had as much or almost as much....on top of major flooding just a few days before. These are mountains and foothills a little northwest of Timaru a few days after the storm went through.

The new camera can manage at night, not always in perfect focus but has its moments, this is Pimlico.

Great shot, Howie.
The male pheasants really are beautiful.

Our neighbours have a pet camel, she's about 18 months old.
