Plastic Bottles

On the way out to the garden this morning Kamila spotted a plastic bottle hanging from the grapevine. What's that?" was the inevitable question.

We told here that is hangs there to scare flies away. We went further to explain that as the flies get close to the bottle, they see themselves reflected but magnified. they think there is another fly there bigger than them and then they fly away.

"That's a good idea," Kamila said. "I thought they were just hanging out to dry," she added.

"Well they've been there for two years, they should be dry by now." we said.

We all laughed as Kamila merrily went on here way to talk to a goat that had just poked its head around the corner.
