Palms must go, starting a water garden (Phoogle Problem)

Post by Arlon Tishmarsh » Thu Feb 05, 2009 8:28 am

Having battled the elements for so long, i have now decided to work with them and change to a new large water garden, its called the English Channel. It is a completely new theme for me but i feel i have little choice. I decided to check my location on "Phoogle maps" (above) last night and apparently i'm just off the French coast somewhere not to far away from Le Harve, a little close to the french some may say, but apparently winters can be a little milder, although windy, but the summers just a little warmer than our south coast.
Below is a list of my beloved plants and also a wanted list to kick start my new collection.

For sale or swap (short list due to incoming tide)

8 T.Fortuneii 1.5m / 3m
2 BRAHEA armata 1.5m
1 BRAHEA edulis 1.5m
1 LIVISTONA chinensis
5 Cordylines 1.5 / 3.5m
Various other palms of all sizes
Various Agave to 1.5m

Wanted list (even shorter list due to hole in boat)

Bilge pump
Wet suit (preferably with snorkel and mask)
Plug for boat
Water lily Red
Water Lily Blue
Water Lily Green
Water Lily any bloody colour
Please, no seaweed. Already have in abundance
Do not offer any form of concrete water fountain / feature etc, struggling with suitable foundation on which to lay.
Any body interested this is "PICK UP" only, do not come in a Ford Transit or similar, you will sink. These items may be listed on Ebay at a future date.
Please be aware that the Royal Mail do not deliver here so please put any correspondence in a corked bottle:

J. Costeaux
a.k.a Arlon Tishmarsh
1 Channel View
Ocean Drive Park
Le Harve
FRO GGY1

This may be last posting, battery on lap top low, internet connection not too good. Water level rising in boat and Uncle Albert just went passed.

:lol: :lol: Mark, you were in the English Channel as that is the default when you set up Phoogle if you don't change it icon_thumright Google maps defaults to the centre of the global landmass which is near Valencia in Spain. When we left it to that default people were quite puzzled as to why they were located in Spain. As we may get some members who are actually located in Spain it was decided to give a default location that could not be confused with a members actual loacation. The location can be seen when looking at the Uk, but unless we have a member aboard a light ship, it will not be their real location. :lol:
Best regards
Dave

I wondered why Arlon had invited me round to watch Finding Nemo, hadn't realised it was the live show!

I should have known something was up when he answered the door like this:

:shock:

Still, mustn't grumble. Swapped him a nice sized Brahea Armata for these gloves:

He shall hereby be known as the Man from At-lamb-tis.

:lol: :lol: :lol:
