Oops. I mistakenly set up the original linkup this week to end too early. It can't be edited after the post goes live, so I've added a second linky to allow latecomers to share their posts.
Unfortunately we need to rely on memories still - the gardens have been closed due to covid. I can't quite understand the logic there, I must admit...
It will be lovely when life returns to normal!
Several years ago, we came home from a nice evening with friends, parked the car, and went inside. I heard a strange noise outside and YIKES - the car we had just left had burst into flames beside our house.
Fortunately, the fire department is located about a mile away.
Here's the car in the daylight the following day. Note that the flames were intense enough to burn a hole in the asphalt driveway... but the house just a couple of feet away was completely undamaged.
Maybe this wasn't such a bad memory after all! The car was a loss, but no one was injured and the house was spared.
