Hope everyone's loved ones are ok. 


I remember my cousins telling me of the terror of being caught up in the Tas fires a few years ago. ((Hugs)) to all. 


And now ... If you're ready ... 


Plant Suggestions

I've found it difficult to get most plants to grow in Belfast sinks because of poor drainage.  If you can move it to a sunny spot I'd fill it with very gritty compost and grow a collection of sempervivums.


If it has to stay in the shade I'd grow moisture-loving ferns.

I don't know of bluebells in Thetford Forest BL - the best place I know is Foxley Wood - one of the best places in the country - and not far from here


http://www.explorenorfolkuk.co.uk/foxley-norfolk.html scroll down for some fantastic pics - and yes, it really does look like that and the perfume is intoxicating.


There are also beautiful bluebell woods around Rutland Water, but that's a bit further away.

LilyP ((hugs)) for little one and family ... and you too of course.

Fairy, you'd better wander around the garden calling Nora ... perhaps she'll make herself known


I've just spent an annoying few minutes reporting a phishing scam to Apple - some low life emailed me an invoice purporting to come from them and hoping that I'd put my card details into it - apparently I bought some sort of 'game' in the wee small hours ... as if
