1   This tunnel of gourds is amazing! Thanks to Modern Pioneer for the photo.

2   The Jay hung around long enough for a photo this morning. They are usually so skittish that photos are impossible.

3   In Exeter again today, we saw ‘The House That Moved’. Dating from the 14th Century, it was about to be knocked down to make way for a road in 1961 but someone had the bright idea of moving it so that’s what was done. Read all about it here and see more fascinating photos of the move about 90 meters up a hill.

    That Gourd tunnel is awesome! I love all the different sizes and colours, brilliant! So glad they decided to move that house and save it, it’s such a beautiful building! Thanks for sharing the story :)

    The gourd tunnel reminds me of lanterns hanging down at a party.
    Glad they saved the old house.

      You’re right! I would hope none would fall on the guests – they look rather heavy! :)

      Isn’t it? I’d love to have the space, the patience and the know-how to create one of these! :)

      Brilliant, isn’t it, that they decided to move the house and then did it successfully. :)
