I would get rid of it, though it will not be cheap. Shop around for prices.

Dove, I am used to looking like a boiled egg with a dead squirrel on top in photos, at least your camera didn't do that!

what's still flowering in your garden?

Roses were out last week before I gave them a haircut, pansies, white bacopa is still in flower, helichrysum, helibore and snowdrops, winter jasmine. In the g/h; alstromera, pelagoniums and penstemon. None of these are flowering profusely, but it serves to remind me that the year has 'turned' and spring cannot be far away.

Sorry I didn't post last night. I had a brilliant day with the other forumatti (another new word?). It was so interesting to find out what others have as a garden and what their gardening passions are.

I adored the dogwoods and they have some spectacular large trees there. Also a second hand bookshop

I avoided the cakes (can't eat wheat and they had no gluten free cakes - shame on them!)

That Katherine Hodgkin was a very strange plant; very discreet colouring (like something out of the Farrow and Ball paint catalogue) and yet en masse they had a curious luminous quality which was very attractive in a slightly spooky way.

I can assure you that the photo is completely wrong; we are all size 10
