It's a plant I'm very fond of, in the right setting - but you paid money for it???  I'm sure there are plenty of people on here who would have given you some by the bucket-load ...

It's OK Fairy - Daniel's just popped to the supermarket to fetch me the makings of some Pimms, then he's going to scrape pigeon poo - apparently it's preferable to dealing with us lot 

Any rock experts here?

Advertise them on your local Streetlife page  

I'm sure you'll find a local gardener willing to take them off your hands - you're not anywhere near Norfolk are you (says I hopefully) 

Confession to make!

Although the weather is gorgeous, and actually hasn't been too bad all spring, the groundwork and re-organisation we had planned is way behind schedule due to 'family circumstances' ........... we'll just have to 'go with the flow'.  

What is this plant?

Nodlisab - google Bilbergia nutans Queen's Tears  - I used to have one a very long time ago

OH cut front and back this morning   and got the parasol out for the terrace and the sunlounger for the shade under the big tree - he and niece biked up to the fish van for prawns for a salad lunch and they're getting the BBQ out for later.  I've jointed and marinated a chicken and made a potato salad - everyone welcome

I've also pricked out the free tomato seed plants from T&M - the second lot germinated beautifully - and am just about to direct sow some sunflowers.

To expand on my preference for 'useful' rather than 'like' .......... I remember a time when one or two members (no longer around) actually got competitive about the number of 'reads' and 'posts' on 'their' threads
