She's ok thanks Joyce. Got a bit damp today but is happy in the work and I think she's learning to pace herself.

She looks in here most days but doesn't post a lot as she tries to rest her hands when she can. Apparently a pair of  Felco secateurs are on her list for Father Christmas

I'd just lift out a divot of turf with a small trowel and you'll find a brown corm at the bottom of the stem ... it won't be that far down ... the you can replace the divot.

Our last MP was a Lib Dem Obelixx ... but as it's a university constituency he lost his seat after the coalition

Just dig down and pull out the little corm ... it won't be deep.

It can look gorgeous, given time

Got them all over my lawn too ... Cyclamen hederifolium ... have they spread from elsewhere in the garden .... they'll die down before too long and you won't see anything of them until they flower in the late summer/autumn and the leaves appear after the flowers.

It'll grow branches and then it'll look like a bundle of sticks instead of just the one stick   ... eventually it'll look more like a tree without leaves
