E-leaf-ant hedge is a cut above

A green-fingered homeowner took on the mammoth tusk of turning his hedge into a herd of elephants. Creative Gavin Hogg has been amazing passers-by with his jumbo creations. He spent hours sculpting the eye-catching spectacle near his home in Becon, South Wales. And now the unique topiary, featuring seven adults and three baby nellies, has been transformed into an unlikely tourist attraction.

Gavin, 49, said: "I found a picture of a group of elephants and set about shaping the hedge - it took me about two days. The ears and trunks were a but tricky but I am pleased with the end result." Gavin and wife Vina fell in love with elephants after a safari holiday to Kenya. The couple even sponsored a baby elephant through an African wildlife charity. But now they can see their own herd every time they gaze out of the window of their Grade 1-listed mansion in the Welsh countryside. Dad-of-two Gavin said: "They will need a haircut twice a year just to smarten them up. "But they will be a permanent feature here and anyone is welcome to see them."

Tree Willy !!!

It looks like something fishy is going on in this Kent surburb.The amazing hedge, in Whitstable, has been shaped into a smiling Moby Dick-like sea creature by homeowner Nicki Leggett. It took three years of pruning to perfect but it looks like Nicki had a whale of a time.

A great joke: from Robert

One day a cat dies and goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, "You've been a good cat all of these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask. "

The cats says, " Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep in small closed corners with hardwood floors. Whenever I wanted to sleep in a comfortable place like the sofa, they would always shoo me to the floor."

God says, 'Say no more. " And instantly, a fluffy comfortable sofa appears.

A few days later, many mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made the cat.

The mice said, "All our lives we've had to run. We've been chased by cats, dogs and even women with brooms. If we could only get around without having to use our feet, we wouldn't have sore feet anymore."

God says, " Say no more. " And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.

About a week later, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his sofa . God gently wakes him and asks,

'How are you doing? Are you happy here?'

The cat yawns and stretches and says... " I've never been happier in my life! I sleep all I like, and this sofa is so comfortable and big I can stretch and sleep however I like! "

God smiles, and then the cat continues, " Oh! And by the way - those Meals on Wheels you've been sending over are the best! "

Does anybody on the planet have better weather than we do today ????

Have a wonderful, wonderful day !!!!!
