Mice or possibly Mouse

The Jack Russell has just caught this, right outside the house, 1 metre from the undersink cupboard

 I don't think it is a mouse. I put the snail there for an idea of scale.

Pics of bargain plants yesterday, I hope.

Shabby Chic Anyone?

Obelix, that box/chest you painted is original and professional

If you go to Johnsons Leyland, they will mix any colour you want, they do very good versions of Farrow and Ball for far less and the quality is good. I did the outside of my house in F&B Dorset Cream using Johnsons exterior paint and am pleased with the way it has lasted.

Obviously they can't achieve the very matt finish of some of F&B's emulsion paints, but one would varnish or wax it anyway. They can mix, I believe, 15000 colours I'm a professional in this field and often recommend their paint to clients who are balking at the price of F&B, Annie Sloan, Paint Library etc.

Dove, do you have to cook them at all? ...and I'm sure it can't be half a century

You can pickle Nasturtium seeds as a substitute for capers. Never had them myself, but I get through so many jars of capers perhaps I should try

Very nice tree?
