So do I

Just heard from a friend on another forum - a District Nurse in the Derbyshire Peaks where it's snowing heavily on black ice - she's just setting out on foot with a colleague to do necessary visits to patients living off the beaten track. 

Flowers or plants with the name Sharon

Yes, there are several different plants known as Rose of Sharon - I hope Shanijo gets the hibiscus and not the hypericum.

Good morning all

Chilly here and ice on puddles.  The Met Office says sleet or snow this afternoon.  Think I'll stay indoors!

Stay safe everyone

Pdoc!   I'm pleased Spurs got through - I've had a soft spot for them ever since Ken Hancock transferred to them from Ipswich back in the 60s   However, as my son is a lifelong Chelsea Supporter I'll keep quiet re football from hereon

Clari - No bread and milk - it makes hedgehogs very poorly or even dead!!!


Meat-based cat/dog food or dried meatbased cat biscuits.  Sunflower hearts, chopped peanuts, banana, raisins, mealworms all good for hedgehogs.  And fresh water.

It's my birthday

Put some food and fresh water out - he's only woken 'cos he's hungry.  If he comes and gets it see of you can catch him and get him to a Hedgehog Rescue place - he might need intravenous feeding. 

Good luck
