Good picture Mick. I see you are using your helicopter now instead of your bike.

Nice to have a helicopter on the back lawn.

The last time I drove past that view there wasn't a car there, there was a helechopper!

I wonder how many air miles that little duck will clock up in its lifetime. More than the helicopter I shouldn’t wonder.
The mole that’s been busy on this beautifully manicured lawn Is a busy little bee, as it’s also been digging furiously in our field!

Good photo Mick, I suppose the structure on the left is the departure lounge.

Yes, Pat, the moles really are busy little things. I believe that the old plantsmen bagged the molehills, and sometimes then mixed them with other lovelies such as builders rubble, loam made from upturned divots, soot, and perhaps a bit of horse manure for 'swagger.' But Oh, how their plants shone on the showbenches. I remember how a schoolmate sometimes gave his Percy Thrower impersonation by him saying 'I reckon the answer lies in the soil.' Good old Percy, and still celebrated.
