My Lily of the Valley is just coming out. I have a sprig in flower on the kitchen table. The French give it to each other for good luck too. Once sellers used to sell it in laybys along the roads. Never seem to see them now, but today I haven't been out as I've been gardening.

Is "the Low" the one I met Dove in? It was lovely, with nooky drinking areas and beer in barrels in the tap room. We had sandwiches in chunky bread with lots of filling. Has it changed hands since?

Morning all.

I think we sang Dove's song at school, I know we sang something but I thought maybe it had nonny no in it.


Sun is back out again. Greenhouse potting on then weeding lower trellis bed.

My husband used to go out with an air rifle at 6am when we lived in Kent. He gave be John Seymour's book on self-sufficiency so I could learn to prepare rabbits for cooking. Unfortunately there were fleas pinging about on the work surface when I tried!

I like Dove's suggestion, but you could get one of these.

Why don't you send the photo to the Eden Project and ask them? They should know.
