flowering rose. I am so pleased that you have seen starlings; normally they squabble over the fat balls all summer in the garden, but have only seen one this year! I just don't know what can have happened to them as they are usually so abundant.

What's for tea?

So dark in the Fens need light on to type despite being right next to window. Am desperate to do a good days work in the garden - it might have to be tomorrow even if it's drizzling.

My builder put DPC plastic down on the drive, before laying gravel. When I cut a hole in the DPC to plant something there are often immensely long bindweed roots just raring to go the minute they find a bit of light. It is a real nuisance though I have to admire its' tenacity. Yes your leaves do look pretty much like bindweed.

Have just tried to upload a photo, never tried before. Was not successful but possibly too many pixels(?) It may be better to use your camera on your mobile, fewer pixels than a digital camera?

I'm afraid it doesn't make much visual sense to me. Did you say it has leaves/ They would help in identification; perhaps a close up.

Last of the salt beef from Sunday, with mash and steamed Brussel sprout tops all turned into bubble and squeak. These sprout tops have masses of flavour, am hooked on them.

The original recipe was for peaches, but I don't like buying madly out of season stuff.
