get away from her you
Thought I'd best get the Alien Queen Tree whilst I was passing before all the leaves come back and obscure it.
It probabaly only slightly resembles the Alien Queen but ever since seeing it like that a few years ago it's stuck now. The effect is certainly mitigated by the thicker vegetation of summer but the long head with the slight frill to the rear is still clearly visible. One day I'll get round to sticking some temporary eyes on it in the hope of freaking out at least one late-night jogger. It might even be visible from the new houses recently installed just to the south of the path at the Duddingston Road end. The only problem with eyes it that they might bring the tree to the limited attention of the neds with probable disastrous results. Maybe best to leave it.
