The aim of the attackers is to cause a response from the west which will ignite war which will cause the end of the world ... That is what their sect believe must happen. It is a twisted interpretation of Islamic beliefs and they must not be allowed to cause strife between the major religions of the world.

Morning all ... Borough Market is a place OH and I know well ... We often meet friends at a nearby pub and spend time doing lots of foodie shopping at the stalls and surrounding shops before all joining up again for a meal together. Some of the group who live in London may well have been in the area ... ive heard nothing yet ...

If you want some more yellow and green ones, coleus root very easily from cuttings ... just put in water for a few weeks

Glad that helped.  Maybe buy a pack of mixed seeds next?

They're one of the first plants I ever grew from seed as a child ... I grew them on my bedroom windowsill and sold the plants at church sales and to my friends at school.  

Coleus HELP

Some coleus are just yellow and green ............... I used to buy a pack of mixed seeds and you get all sorts, including just yellow and green.


Here are some named varieties of yellow and green coleus

Our local soccer team play in yellow and green and are called the Canaries ... they ought to have them as part of the display outside the ground

OH is home now until Thursday 


He said that this morning he had to negotiate with a fierce mother rook  defending a fledgling which had landed in the narrow alleyway between the shop and the cold store ......... he said she was pretty insistent that he was not going anywhere near her offspring ... however he eventually chased the adult off, got hold of the fledgling and put it around the corner behind the shop  under the big copper beech from whence it probably came ... he said he gave it some nice ham offcuts in case it's parents took time to find it 


Now he tells me he's making us Crab linguine for supper!
