Question? Can a Monkey Puzzle tree ride a bicycle? No, I didn't think so but it is making a decent effort anyway! Yet another strange and wonderful image from the Irish Tourism Association showing Billy Byrne's house in Co. Wicklow. Billy has his bicycle parked beside his Andes Pine aka Monkey Puzzle tree with one either side and two fine flower pots. Who was Billy Byrnes and why would a tourism body publicise his house and bicycle!
This Morning Mary is off on her holliers tomorrow morning early and so you will be left to the tender mercies of our reserves:-) Be good and be kind to her!
