Pat ,,, whichever country we're in, we owe so much to the emergency services who give so much to keep us safe ... full-time, part-time and volunteers
and some Lithuanian advertising as well .... reported.
Maybe a visiting vixen ...
Or do you have the occasional visitor who brings a dog which uses the garden ... just occasionally ...
Tea towels and pinnies are all that needs washing today ... they're having a proper hottish wash. Kitchen and bathroom drains have had the soda and hot water treatment and the house is tidy ... I'd better write that shopping list ...........
Hosta ... you're just asking for it .... aren't you?
Think both courses of action might be needed for you down there in the West Country Hosta
VB ... are we talking Verbena bonariensis? It's a hardy perennial.
I'd pot up rooted cuttings in a free-draining compost and overwinter them in a cold frame/cold greenhouse or similar.
I think the answer is to improve the drainage
What an idiot lighting a fire on a day like that Pat It's a good job your OH and his mates know what theyre doing.
Lovely to see your skinks again
G'day Pat Good morning to the rest of you when you arrive
A calm morning - still quite dark - a crow is cawing from the oaks around the quarry and the robin in the garden is trilling away ...
