Pat, I love my laptop, so much easier to see and type on than an Ipad. It has a thing you wipe your finger on. I never use it. My OH bought me a wireless mouse, it's very good and easy. You plug in a little USB thingy and have a mouse on a mat without a wire.

Have done some planting

You and Mr Dove look very contented looking at your garden

Favourite native mammal?

They can be quite fierce. I found two males having a fight, on was wounded so it moved it away and put it on a soft bed but it died. Sometimes they make nests in people's lofts and make a heck of a racket at night! Especially in mating and having babies seasons.

What sort of strange things?

Sometimes I think time is a funny thing and the past and the present get muddled up.

We have red squirrels (very shy), and hares here. On limestone, rabbits haven't enough soil to make burrows. We have deer here, they can be pests. European dormice (like tiny grey squirrels) live in the stone walls here. Stone Martens live in the woods.

But I like otters, which we don't have here.

Morning all. What's the matter with the forum? Looks OK - for the moment!

I'm going to plant the rest of the plants I bought in the UK. I have gaps where the tulip were. Had annuals in the cold frames for the gaps, didn't plant them before we went to the UK as I knew the house sitter wouldn't water the flower beds, but he forgot to water the colds frames so they are all dead anyway.

I hope you have a lovely anniversary, Liri. I would choose Simnel and my OH would choose raspberry and cream. I think r & c would probably be most popular, may need plastic plates, forks and napkins!

Looked at latest cat thread. CN is nuts, doesn't sound a very happy sort of person. Don't let it bother you Topbird, not worth it.

I like animals, I have a cat, a dog and horses. My garden was turning into a wild life park so OH fenced the veg bit and the main flower bit to protect them from the deer. I have hares, stone martins, mice, voles, lots of birds, red squirrels, but am glad I don't have rabbits - they can do a lot of damage in a garden. I'm so lucky to have a big garden and to share it with so many creatures, but I can understand that if you live in a town with a small garden and have to share it with the neighbours' cats it must get very frustrating.

Went to GC. Bought a new big square plant pot for the "Lady of Shallot" rose I bought in Suffolk. Not as pretty as the lead look one I bought in Suffolk but clematis "Betty Corning" has gone in that one.
