RABBITS!!! HELP!!!!

We had a large family of tame rabbits living loose in our garden throughout one summer - as far as I remember the things they left alone included foxgloves, paeonies, mahonia, lily of the valley, London Pride (Saxifraga urbum) and Bearded Iris. 


Hope that helps

Wasn't it glorious Joyce  It just filled my heart with smiles - absolute genius in both the writing and the performance.

Hosta   I'd happily listen to stephen fry reading the telephone directory 


Did you ever hear that lovely series of letters between Napoleon's and Wellingtons horses - Stephen Fry read one side - I've forgotten who read the other, but it was absolutely blissful - I could listen to it over and over again

I agree SGL  an 'ordinary' towel rail attached to the wall above a radiator works for us downstairs and in the upstairs bathroom where we have more space a freestanding Victorian style wooden towel rail stands in front of the radiator and keeps all the towels dry and warm and the room comfortable

Dove - you are not alone re Harry Potter books. I did watch an HP film on TV.


See original post

 I've not even done that .... it's not that I intentionally avoid doing so ... just that they don't appeal.  Fantasy fiction isn't really my cup of tea, although in my teens I enjoyed readying Tolkien and also the Gormenghast trilogy.


I did try Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, but they really held no interest for me.
