I like your joke- but you cannot kid me, for here in Munstershire you can see lots of strawberries and asparagus fields - the time has begun to enjoy those delis.
Chris: Hahaha - I know you are just TOO CLEVER to be fooled by me Philine!

I see someone walking on water. Or is he water skiing and the boat is hidden by the bush? I can imagine that they did not expect to irrigate at this time of the year.
Chris: This is some sort of crop growing under polythene sheeting at Sutton Hoo. Our teacher Mr Trim took us there to see the site of the Viking longboat excavations. Now owned by the National Trust it is a very agreeable place to visit
And Jesus was a sailor
When He walked upon the water
And He spent a long time watching
From His lonely wooden tower

And when He knew for certain
Only drowning men could see Him
He said, "All men will be sailors, then,
Until the sea shall free them."
Chris: I think a sailor might feel rather out of place here..

A sea of plastic I presume. Almost as strange as a field of solar panels
Chris: A modern phenomenon Mike
You don't fool me, Chris...Well you did for a moment, smile
Chris: It's just that in real life it looked so much like water Frank..

Is this a lake that has been escavated Chris ... perhaps you can give me a full description of how it came about.
Chris: Err..yes, of course
Our fields will soon be filled with these lakes too. Smart idea.
Chris: Thank you Mary

Sometimes the strawberries must be watered, Chris.
Chris: Constantly Ole Fruit..
I really prefer seeing the nice green fields to be honest. Nice Gorse bush in the foreground.
Chris: The gorse is a lovely shade of yellow
It looked like a lake with waves at first Chris
Chris: Just briefly Janet..
An irrigation pond, or what?
Chris: Plastic sheeting Tom..
You've got a rainbow!
Chris: Ahh - so I have!
