November 5th is Guy Fawkes Night, or Bonfire Night, in the UK, and it is traditional to have your own wee firework display in your garden. The pessimistic weather forecasters predicted heavy rain, but in the event the evening remained more or less dry, and the wind was not too strong, so Algy had a lot of fun 🙂

It’s Bonfire Night again, here in the UK, but as there is a bitter north-north-east wind howling across the West Highlands of Scotland at considerable speed – not to mention the driving rain which the wind is carrying – Algy decided to enjoy last year’s fireworks again this year 🙂


Algy was safely back home, and it was November 5th. In Britain that means fireworks, and on this date Algy always finds a packet of magic sparklers at the foot of his tree. Unlike normal fireworks, Algy’s sparklers last for hours and hours, so he spent a very happy evening high up in his tree, oblivious to the darkness as the night closed in.
