Liri, I have a feeling that they are supposed to report it to their Council if they have it growing there. I may be wrong, but it is worth checking.

FG, at the moment, each morning I go out to forage from my 2 plants for 2 or 3 strawberries for breakfast with red gooseberries and Greek yoghurt

Nothing grows over from my neighbour's garden, but from my terrace I can see the top of a Kerria that seems to have been flowering for months and the red berries of a Rowan.

Of course from the back field I get; thistles, convulvulus, cleavers growing up and into my Campsis, nettles, hogweed etc. But hey, I chose to live in the country all I have to do is be vigilant and pull 'em up.

I tend not to do pastry, so do the same sort of egg/veg mix as a fritatta. Great warm or cold

BM, I like that zinc bath and is that a footbath in the pic below the blue chair?

Obelix, the bottle wall is wonderful; does the sun shine through it and sparkle?

Fibreclay pots

Not sure what fibre clay is, but when drilling things like tiles I always use masking tape to try and stop cracks and of course a masonry bit.

Morning Glory is a climber, but flowers as the name suggests in the morning, so I always plant it facing East.

That Hollyhock is sensational
