In France the 1st May is lily of the valley day, and you wear a sprig on your lapel, as a love token.

should not be flowering now so definitely do not plant outside yet.

Worm infestation in grass

Personally I don't think there is such a thing as worm infestation.

create a path to the shed , problem solved.

scarify, aerate, and feed, let the worms do the rest, 

at this time of the year most lawns are not at their best, when the better weather comes it will soon recover.

i guess your snug as a bug in a rug, all you need is someone to get you a nice cup of tea and a chocolate digestive.

I hadn't heard it before and it made me laugh.

Good to know the derivation, in my opinion the oldest are often the best.

A friend wanted to buy a special present for his wife's important birthday.

He decided to have a Rose named after her.

She was really pleased and flattered until she saw in the catalogue that it was described as no good in a bed, but great against a wall.
