The Buzz Wire Buzzed Off!

The vegetable growing season is in full swing within our own garden and down the road where we are helping out an elderly couple. We have experienced a very very strong wind today so I zoomed off on Supatrike to check the additional plot. Some of the buzz wire (bird deterrent) had broken in the wind. I took hold of one end of the tape and there was a huge whoosh of wind and the buzz wire flew up into the air - it had a bamboo stake attached to it and it flew merrily like a kite - the stake reaching a great height! It was rather good fun!

"Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height..."

Husband must be having a glorious time with 2 veggie gardens now.

Mickle and a very purry Zebbycat (while its raining outside, we're cosy in here)

Fun! Did it land nearby or did you have to trek on your trike to reclaim it?:-)

You should have entered it into the Swindon Kite festival...bet it would have won for most unusual :-)

Just catching up and saying hello.

Looks like you're doing well with your macro. Mine doesn't seem to work too well - or i don't know how to make it!
