Last week we took ourselves off to the wilds of Northumberland for a spot of lunch.
It was a glorious day and there was a walled garden next to the cafe, so after lunch we had a wander.
The garden had a number of old apple trees, many of which were festooned for the season in nature's own winter decoration.
There has been a bumper crop of berries around here this year, which according to folklore means that a hard winter is on the way! Do the trees know something we don't and, if so, how???
Berries are one thing to find in a walled garden, but even in the wilds of Northumberland I certainly was surprised to come across this sign!
The signpost was facing in the same direction as the children's play area, which certainly doesn't seem like a good idea to me :) Dragons, in European mythology at least, are generally fire-breathing, cave dwelling, bad news for human creatures as far as I can tell, so sending your children in their general direction seems a bit careless.
It sounds like a great threat though if your children were misbehaving :)

funny! Any signs pointing towards a dragon would definitely attract my boys :-)ReplyDelete
I've got one I'd happily send there right now hehe! Festooned is such a good word! Lovely photos :)ReplyDelete
Id like to see those dragons.....from a distance mind you.ReplyDelete
My boss cheerfully told me the other day that it's going to be the worst winter since 1940-something, those berries may be onto something!ReplyDelete
As for the dragon, seems like a perfect place to send kids to me ;o)
Didn't you go and look at the dragon? Please go back and take a photo this time xxxReplyDelete
I'm up for a dragon hunt! I'll be looking at the Smaug this weekend, can't wait.ReplyDelete
