I have Dove, and Bernard and I have 'signed up'  Thank you 

Wonky, I am sorry that the fab job (we'd hoped this was) has turned out to be all but...  Mine is going great guns.... just hope I can stay, I'm only on a years contract 

Think the job has good and bad points - the problem is some weeks there are more bad points than good - she loves a large part of what she does, but there are some very difficult aspects and it can be very draining emotionally  ...

Hosta - we need a photo ...

I don't think I ever used insecticides. If I did it was too long ago to recall. I've signed petitions too numerous to count but I'll sign as many more as is necessary.

 

 

Same here

Spiky weeds??

I've been bitten by a euphorbia, not much fun. (Not this one, E. myrsinites, a fine spry on a hot day when I cut the stems off.)

I still pull them up bare handed though

 

So do I Nut, even though I was badly burnt as a child - however, I always tell other people not to - then it's their fault if they're burnt, not mine

And as DD has her own and other people's children around, and a hotter sun than ours - best to be aware

If you're going to pull them up use gloves and long sleeves.  Don't get the sap on your skin.

water fountain - noise level -

It's not that it drowns out the noise of conversation - the theory is that your ear focuses on the sound of the water and not the chattering.

A bonus is that the neighbours may spend more time going back and forth to the loo and less time sitting conversing ... although that may affect you too
