When you put her outside in the shade in the summer, put some sticky copper tape around the pot to keep snails and slugs away ... they do like them for a summer picnic

We've seen quite a few  Red Kites when visiting South Lincs and now we're beginning to see them in North Norfolk ... beautiful birds
