Hi there. I have been away for a week in Warsaw, Poland. Above are some Red Squirrel's we took in one of the many enormous parks in Warsaw city.
I was very impressed with the superb public transport infrastructure. We bought 3 day passes for 30 Zloty (about 8 Euro or 6 quid in Sterling) and availed of the underground, bus and trams. You could just jump off one mode of transport and jump straight on another. It made me wish that there was public transport where we live in the countryside.
Here's a picture of the incredible 'Palace of Culture'. Mr Stalin gave it for a present just after the war. It looks incredible lit up at night. It reminded me of Gotham City. We went to the top of the building and had an amazing birds eye view of Warsaw.
Whilst walking around the 'Old Town'. I spotted this 'Trabant' car. She's probably from East Germany before the wall came down.
Talking of the 'Wall'. I went to see Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) at the national football stadium. The show was incredible. It was indeed a pleasure and privilege to say that I have finally seen one of my rock heroes. I would recommend you get a ticket when Roger arrives in Blighty in September. You won't be disappointed. The pyrotechnics, computer screens and music was superb. You can see the Warsaw show on good old You Tube.
Mean while back at the ranch (smallholding). The weeds have grown like wildfire. Especially the Red Shank in the field I set with kale. Perhaps I should have sprayed the soil with weedkiller first? Is it poisonous or can you feed it cattle? I believe it's a good indicator that your land is deficient in lime.
