Just keep calling her Viola Mark, see what happens 

When bubble-wrapping the pot that my standard bay is in, I found some little viola seedlings amongst the grit in the pot.  They'll seed any and everywhere

We all dance in the spring breezes around here Verdun - old East Anglian custom - when fuelled by Adnams bitter 

It's amazing what East Anglians will do, with a little alchofrolic encouragement 

Our GCs always apply the reductions to the 'needing TLC' stuff as well - can get some really good bargains that way

Dramatic grey clouds sweeping in from the northwest now - it's getting dark very quickly here.  Forecast is for dry and cloudy overnight - hum, those clouds look as if they mean business to me.

So do most apples from Tesco in my experience - we get ours from the farm shop - they get their from a local Millennium orchard with loads of different varieties, they're picked when they're ripe and the difference between them and supermarket apples is amazing

Our neighbours give us several of their Norfolk Royals and we like the flavour - as I've said we think they're like a Braeburn but a little sweeter.  But then flavour does sometimes vary from tree to tree and the growing conditions.
