Clari - you're right - BSL will be a very useful string to your bow, particularly working as you do alongside Education. 

As part of my work (before I retired) I learned Signalong - a sort of simplified version of BSL, used by people with learning difficulties who also have communication problems.  Great fun, and incredibly useful

anyone have one of these?

If that's a geranium I'm Sophia Loren!

But I haven't the foggiest what it is - it looks like an umbellifer, but not like any I know.  Where's Nut and Landgirl???

Chickweed - a common weed of disturbed land - it got it's name as it was chopped up and fed to young poultry.  Cagebirds like it too - and it's very good as a salad veg or in an egg sarnie

I do that Nut

They look familiar but I can't put a name to them - I certainly wouldn't pull them out until you know what they are. 

Something keeps saying 'daisy' to me -   Shasta - something along those lines ........... but I'm probably wrong

Trees from Seeds.

Sounds a very 'unusual' set up to me Clari - which is why I suggested they get the best information available - there's very little that Kew doesn't know about seeds

We only get squirrels around here very rarely - usually around acorn time - but OH spotted one on the feeders this afternoon - when we go out he lurks at the top of the ash trees - we've brought the sunflower heart feeder in for a while - hopefully he'll give up and go away

Clari !!!!!!!! (hugs) and lots of 'em xx
