    All gone now. So is half the hair on my forearms and I need a bath! (yes, that is smoke to the right, it's still burning)

    Can't beat a good bonfire. I have a pile like that every 3 - 4 weeks and have to wait for a Northerly wind to blow the smoke across the fields, away from the neighbours.

    I scarified a large part of the back lawn today, so my bonfire is looking healthy.

    Nah. I just smoked the whole neighbourhood out. The nearest are just a bunch of scumbags, so this is a little payback!

    Geoff, did you take the opportunity to grill a few sausages while you had the bonfire going?

    A plant related question, so I suppose it counts as gardening related.

    Why are there dozens of baby oak trees in a local park when there are no mature Oaks nearby? They are clustered, which suggests they were not planted intentionally.

    The only thing I can think of is that acorns may have been swallowed by horses and deposited there in manure. The area has been used for exercising horses for many years, but they are stabled elsewhere in an area that does have mature Oaks. Could this be right?

    I did consider that, but the nearest large Oaks are nearly a quarter of a mile away.
