Christmas present quiz
It is a garden fork, but not any old garden fork.
Deborah had a motion alarm fitted into it, so that when you stop digging, the alarm warns her that you are slacking again :-))
Or, it's a flat shovel for clearing snow, for the on coming ice age, with the same alarm fitted.
Is it a Transplanting Spade ?
Keep trying friends. It cost a lot of money and flew into Shannon today, but that is not a clue. Will put a picture of it unwrapped tonight to help you. The prize will be ferns of some kind or a glass butterfly to put into concrete, hand crafted by yours truly in Dromin :-)
Martin as I keep telling you, details are important.
It did not fly into Shannon, it was flown into Shannon.
It is a garden ornament of a garden tool, most likely Bronze to fit in with the rest of you ornaments in the garden ;-))
It is a proper tool Fran. It was ordered in November, it is a rare tool and possibly had to made for me, and it is not light. Hosta I have a transplanting one which can dig up anything almost, will put a pic of that up over the weekend if anyone wants to see it. No one has got the answer right yet and once they do I will say so.
A snow shovel of some sort
Definitely a plant! : )
One of those implements, like a fork, but has a second forked attachment for dividing clumps of plants.
Shovel / Spade type of implement for digging narrow and deep holes or trenches
Are you taking up turf cutting Martin???
Martin, whatever you call it, I believe in calling a spade a spade.
Ok this is probably wrong but my guess is some sort of hollow tine aerator or a special bulb planter, failing that it probably a coal shovel :-)
Well, it's too round shouldered for a spade. Your foot would slide off of it.
There's a thingymagig on the handle that you sqeeze with one hand. So I presume that the thingymagig expands something lower down to make a hole? in the soil?
You have me too, Martin. Initialy I would have said a Snow Shovel. Big Butter pat. ?
