Front "garden" needs some inspiration!

Would you like me to send you some Cyclamen hederifolium 'alba'? 

We're in danger of being overwhelmed by the little beauties and I think they'd feel quite at home there - shady with good drainage.

Still in pjs here but heading for the shower now - suddenly my week seems to be filling up with social events so I'd better do some housework today or we'll be living in a midden

Weed or flower?

Yes, we fed it to our budgie, and he also enjoyed the seed spikes of plantains and a bit of groundsel when it had gone to seed.

Chickweed is good in salads and makes a lovely sandwich. 

And as it's name suggests, used to be chopped up and fed to young poultry

Good morning all

Chicky - huge Rembrandt fans here - we have a London trip planned after Christmas so are hoping to see it then. 

 There's frost on the roofs around here this morning - none on the ground and the temp in the back garden only dropped to 3.7C, but obviously low enough for the first air frost of the winter.




how to save elder and birds whilst getting rid of ivy

Doesn't look like an elder to me either.  Hard to see from the few leaves there are but when I enlarge the pics it could be an old apple tree?

OL, it's a hedehog with a funny hat on!

Let's Remember Them

Thinking of my maternal grandfather and my Gt Uncle Billy, best pals who married sisters and who both had their lives shortened by their experiences on the Somme and at Ypres. 

Also thinking of Pa's younger brother, my Uncle Richard - shot down over Germany and buried in Kiel Cemetery - I never met him but think of him often.

And thinking of Pa's fellow airmen, some of whom never landed back at home, and Ma's schoolfriends who lost their lives on the North Atlantic convoys.
