We don't have the capability of combining threads but it's  a good idea to flag up the others to make people aware of their existence.

We've got Crested Hart's Tongue ferns alongside the path from the front to the back garden - they're the first plants I put in this garden

It's like a discussion  on another thread - the word 'weed' used to mean herb or grass (in other words, any plant that wasn't a bush or a tree) - it wasn't until the Middle Ages that it came to mean 'something growing where it's not wanted'.

One of my favourite books is Melvin Bragg's The Adventure of English.

Dark pond water

Not necessarily - I never saw to the bottom of any of the ponds on the farm - I thought they were really really deep (and Ma encouraged that thinking) but really they were probably just a couple of feet at the most.  They were a dark greeny brown.  Think of any village pond you've seen.  

We can see the bottom of ours at the moment, but the time will come when the water 'thickens up'.    Somewhere Nutcutlet posted some pics of her ponds - really healthy and full of wildlife but you can't see the bottom.

I've not sprayed anything in this garden, other than weeds in the drive.

Think I've confused some people - auction very early tomorrow - gardening today - but first I've been striking up a relationship with some nice people at Virgin - internet disappeared TWICE!!!  Nice young man says he doesn't think it will disappear again today ..................... It had better not!!! 

Fb - from time to time Pa manages to remove his catheter - think when he's drowsy he gets the 'wiring' confused with his 'Emergency' button 

Have a lovely day tomorrow
