All the Abrahamic religions forbid the killing of non-combatants - but as has happened so often throughout time, religious teaching has been twisted to their own ends


I've mowed the front lawn  - despite a good breeze it's very warm out there.  


Now for a coffee then the back lawn ....... .  

What should I put around the the edge of the grass to highlight summer house?

I'll check that one out Nutcracker but still seems perhaps taller than these which are around 30cms.  



 It may well not have finished growing yet! 


But we can only make guesses - why not contact the Nat Trust and ask?  There is an email address on the website

The Elgar was fab wasn't it - one of the best renditions I've heard/seen ...... and I've heard/seen quite a few in my time ......  She was mesmerizing   Good review in the Guardian  https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jul/16/first-night-of-the-proms-review-tribute-to-france-opens-a-stirring-evening 


I'm planning to get the lawnmower out this morning ... as I have other tasks for OH tomorrow 

Wrong seeds

Posted: 16/07/2016 at 08:47

I find that a lot of people go for cheaper seeds via Ebay etc - many of these are sold by people who do not have the facilities to guard against cross-pollination and therefore the resulting seeds are frequently not as advertised.


It is very costly to produce seeds properly, not to mention the investment needed to produce stable and worthwhile new varieties.  


I would rather spend a little more on fewer seeds from reputable suppliers and get the right plants - cheap seeds are often a false economy, in my experience.
