cut backs to the hanging garden

oh no ! they’ve chopped the hanging garden. the amazing thing is those hanging baskets are SO high, at least a few metres off the ground (compare to the people in the photo below).

jane and the girls have been in Nottingham for a few days. here is brother-in-law kev with all the kids

angry interviewer

the interviewing chap (rather than the interviewee who i didn’t recognise) looks really angry. the sound man has responded by bashing him with the hairy thing.

plants on the move

we’ve been aware of the plant uprising for a while but never have we seen one so evolved and aggressive as this one ! photo by mrs funkypancake mrs funkypancake’s sister


matt, funkypancake’s web-landlord, spotted number 133 and gave chase. he saw it in amersham which is about 30 miles away from london.
i think brother edd spotted a stash of them in a car park in guildford which means matt’s don’t gain the prize for the most remote (unless my geography is completely out which wouldn’t surpise any of us!)

a friend with a strange hobby

andrew, who goes to the same church as we do, takes pictures of street lamps. how cool is that ?
here’s an example:

esther’s front tooth fell out

big day in our household yesterday. esther’s tooth fell out (helped by her) at approximately 5am. it looks like the replacement is well on its way though.
she’s written a letter to the tooth fairy telling her not to deliver the cash until next sunday as she’s away this week visiting relatives (esther not the tooth fairy)

red bands

this picture is for john and danny who are elastic band farmers. they also farm various other things on the streets (like photos, gloves etc). i only take pictures of my finds (except photos), but they take the whole object !

personalised sign

is it right to pick on kendall like this ? good avoidance of capital letters though which i fully support

vin’s birds

Vin is a regular commenter on funkypancake, and sent me this fantastic bird picture which he made reference to on his comment here.
click to enjoy it’s excellentness. i really should spend longer trying to take my photos !
