Last week the little lane which leads from home was re-surfaced although it was in a very poor state with many potholes we were all amazed at the amount of work they have done on it. The council were there for several day's and they have also dug out the drainage ditches in places the road is about 6 inches higher. Although this is the quickest route from my home I have not used it for a year because of the potholes and the fact that other drivers are not always willing to let you pass. And now that we have this wonderful new surface I will still not use it because as they have dug out the ditches there is no room to allow passing cars. I give it a couple of months before the first vehicle comes to grief.
The interesting thing about this resurfacing is that our local council has a limited budget and there are a lot of much more high profile roads that need doing. We are not complaining of course but some of the older residents are worried about boy racers. This is a very pretty lane and I have posted photos before but in the last few months more of the fields have been taken over for livestock or horses.
One of the most interesting is the man who over the past couple of years has built up a large collection of chickens,ducks,geese. etc.But when I was passing yesterday I discovered he had added a Giraffe and a Playboy loving Lion quite a shock as you can imagine.
|HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A MORE MISERABLE LION|
|A STRANGE PLACE TO SEE A GIRAFFE|
The following photos are different variety's of Daffodils that I found in the ditches and hedges in the lane HOW DID THEY GET THERE ?
Lastly I took this very poor quality photo of the SUPERMOON shining through the roof light last night the window was covered in condensation but I think it adds to the picture.
