 Sounds like a feasible solution Fairy

Morning Fairy   just love dunnocks 

Don't think hypnotism will sort Hosta's sleep out ... having looked at some good medical sites it's pretty clear that it's to do with his adrenal problem ... once that's sorted out things should be a lot better ... but until then I don't think anything will work, short of bumping him on the bonce with a boulder 

Dd, lovely to see you and great that it's all going so well ... glad you like the cake recipe, it's a good'un isn't it   ......... as for dates, maybe he's being a gent and not 'rushing things'   Maybe invite him to go to something with you  ............?

You've probably seen this 

Don't forget to inform your property insurance company ... pretty sure it will affect your premium if you take 'paying guests' as a regular thing.

Good morning   Hosta I hope you got some sleep ((hugs))

9pm does seem late for GW but better late than never and I always record it so that if I do nod off I can catch up later.

Just tried your link Dove....Uzbeckistan  Plov ?? ...

 I'm sorry Hazel ... it did that to me at first but I deleted it (or thought I had) and replaced it with the correct link ...... my laptop obviously has a mind of it's own today .............. by way of explanation, I'm cooking Plov for supper today.

This hopefully, is the right link 

Help identify these plants

The first one is a hardy geranium - there are many varieties, here are just a few 

The second looks like Cerastium tomentosum, known as 'Snow in Summer'.  If you cut off the dead flower stems it will look much better.
