I noted this morning that someone had put a sign on some pea shoots that have sprouted rapidly on the kitchen windowsill – triffids, it read.

There are some suspiciously fast growing sprouts but fortunately none of them have deadly whips – at least not yet. I hope that we shall not be chased around the Fife countryside by triffids! Still, perhaps we should be careful not to look at the sky if there are any amazing displays of shooting stars or anything!

This ‘triffid’ outgrew many of his fellow pea seedlings.
