Welcome to Meriden (Centre of England)

Welcome to Meriden, the centre of England. Well at least it was considered the centre of England for a very long time. But now there seems to be conflicting reports of where the centre actually is. Some claim its in Fenny Drayton, Leicestershire, while others say its Morton, Derbyshire. I don't know. But anyway, here is a picture of what is known to many as the centre of England (Meriden).


Top Of Tree Broke Off (In Half)

This tree has been totally snapped in half, by which, I presume was the result of bad weather. It is being held up in the air by the branches of the other trees, so its basically stuck in the canopy. It's much thicker than it looks, and if it was to fall on a person they would probably die. Or, at the very least be seriously injured. Picture taken with a Canon Powershot S2 IS (here).



Robin's Pincushion Picture

Noticed this very strange reddish strand-like thing on a Rose bush while walking along. Never seen anything like it before. I've come to find out that it is commonly called Robin's Pincushion, and its a common gall that develops on some wild rose bushes when one or more of the rose's buds get injected by a small gall wasp. Picture was taken with a Canon S2 IS.
