So what is going on here?

Another Cyprus moment.

Sometimes I snap stuff that I just can't explain.

Re: So what is going on here?

From a gardeners's perspective - an over-constructed trellis and the plant in the pot died.

I have developed an explanation for this, if anyone is interested:

Sound plausible - after all, the hippopotamus is indeed a dangerous creature. It takes it's name from the ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, who was the first person to capture and tame one of these oafs, hence the well-known phrase, "Hippocratic Oaf."

Re: So what is going on here?

Pete,
I like your interpretation and Johns addendum but, if I may, these crossed barrs do look like witchcraft - of some sorts - to me.
Just my very first thought on the subject. I have no insight/experience/expertise etc. whatsoever in this field, other then I think it's all bullshrimp. But maybe you can track down some information on local occults, which in turn offer a new interpretation ...?!
BTW: I've been reading through the forum now for an hour or so and your photo and post is the first one I comment on - since March 25th, when I've been last logged in (according to the stats in the above right corner). There you have it! That already took some witchery, don't you think!?

Cheers,
Falk

Re: So what is going on here?

Hi Falk, I was thinking that we hadn't heard from you just lately, I didn't realize it was as long ago as March! Nice to see you again, even if it is the result of black magic!
