yes, but meeting a rat head on whilst navigating a crawl space between the ship's hull and and a refrigeration hold is one I'd rather forget 😁

Years back I was scuba diving at Stoney Cove, a disused quarry where they have sunk various bits and pieces to make dive training more interesting. At one point I turned to put my head into the doorway of an aircraft cockpit and found myself eyeball to eyeball with a large pike. That used up a fair few minutes worth of air :D

This has self seeded in my garden.. the bees are all over it. Seek tells me it's Purple Toadflax .. I've never come across it before... it seems to be thriving so whether it's a weed or a plant I'm inclined to leave it be. Anyone come across it ?

Having just looked up pictures in the Internet I'm not convinced that Seek has got it right. The flower spike looks different ...

Any ideas ?
