 Now, if you are going to start reading things into pictures...all I can do is offer this delightful little cottage near to where I live.

What??

Not usual for me to share personal stuff on the forums (that's no criticism of those who do) but I wanted to say that yesterday we held the funeral of my second eldest sister. 

My point of posting this is that she spent her last week in Mid-Staffs Hospital and I would like people to know, that in spite of that hospital's unenviable recent reputation, her care in those final days was second to none and in spite of being a hopeless task, their efforts to save her were exemplary.

I'm not looking for sympathy, but I think if this hospital is ever going to progress from its awful past reputation, people like me should spread the word.

This isn't a particularly good shot inasmuch as it lacks sharpness, but I took it because I liked the way the daffs seem to be peering into the water & the resulting reflections.....problem was, they were located on the far bank of a very large lake.

Talkback: How to make a box ball

I made two like this (either side of the door) from cuttings I took myself.

For a trimming guide I bent a couple of pieces of galvanised wire into a circular shape, stuck them in the pot and trimmed the initial form around that.....I removed them after getting the rough shape I was looking for and now do it free-hand.

Due to circumstances, I used this rubbish last year on a piece of ground I wasn't able to cultivate.....I would say that it was a 50-50 mix of lack-lustre annuals & perennial weed seed. It's going to take me years to clean the ground again.

I bought mine via Amazon....you should read their dissatisfied reviews, unless Amazon has zapped them, as they tend to do.
