Now that I have that off my chest, here's to Iain, who celebrated his 47th birthday on Friday. Many more years, my love, and good ones!
|Myles made a fire-poker for Iain. Engarde! He and Dodie also gave him several interesting bbq implements.|
|You can see how the bark has split, all the way up the tree. The blackened area toward the bottom is tree paint that Roger applied to try to keep the bugs out of it.|
|The lightning entered (or exited - who can say) the ground at the base of the tree.|
|Relaxing with a cuppa.|
