Fishy, all spare tyres are strictly ignored on this forum - they are purely reserves of energy, like with camels

....Dove's are silvery and soft, so I was thinking Stachys Byzantina, but I don't know if she likes it. She's just made a pond and that's more for dry places.

To misquote Abraham Lincoln, it seems that " can please some of the people some of the time, but you'll never please all of the people all of the time"
