Definitely the second one is Leucojum vernum. The first is almost certainly Muscari comosum Plumosum.

Should not be a problem as long as you remember the rules about what you cannot put down the toilet. (Everything must be bio-degradable).

Once upon a time the contents of the 'earth closet' were used on the garden as fertiliser and people survived.

As Nutcutlet says, the grey water, which is all that should come out of the system, goes into a deep soak away and does not rise to the surface.

Do the Moderators remove postings without explanation? Only I am sure I put a link to an album of images in the Garden Photos section, but it is not there now.

If it was removed I would love to know why so I can avoid the problem in the future.

And of course the berries on Cornus mas are edible, a bit tasteless though.

Been a good year so far for Hazel catkins. If you look closely at the branches, just behind the catkins you may see tiny red flowers. With any luck, there will be a good crop of nuts for you. Joybell.
