Well Reggie must be feeling better: he's dug up all my "grasses" and chives that up until earlier were residing around the washing line (I'm not sure if chives are ideal for underneath a washing line: I just love the colour of the flowers and so have a second collection of chives in the greenhouse for eating.)
Went shopping *agh* and brought a dress *agh* for a my partners friends wedding (Dove and Wonky will be pleased to know that posh frock trying on was performed in my steel capped muddy boots). I have no idea of dress codes or which bits we've been invited too or whether its in side / out side / up a mountain so I've played safe, made sure I can climb into the LandRover with it on and now have a little bag of accessories to up dress or down to suit the situation: Oh how I envy chaps with their simple suit and tie!
Also, I'm not sure how (okay I do - I needed to pee quite badly and know that the facilities stood a good chance of being clean) but I ended up in Dobbies garden centre and came away with three *tiny* plants all classed as "mixed cactus". I think (through googling and looking at lots of pictures) they might be a Opuntia Microdasys, a misc green cactus with long pointy bits, and a tiger type aloe of which there seem to be many varieties that all look the same. Fingers crossed these will be going into the bathroom to add a little bit of colour once I've made some modifications to the tooth brush holders we purchased from Ikea.
I'll try and get a photograph up for you to see if anyone can identify the plants so that their labels will contain more than "Phil, James, & Percy".
