Dove you are obviously too light to trigger the sensor.

Pdoc - you are a gentleman and a scholar!!!  I owe you a drink!!!

Athyrium - Painted Fern

Athyricum niponicum 'Pewter Lace' - not a good photo of it, it's past it's best at this time of year - it's an absolutely beautiful fern.


What rose is this?

Hello and welcome RoyS

There are so many roses - have a look on this site

There's a Search facility on the left hand side which may help you find your rose - it's certainly a lovely one - if you do identify it do let us know which it is

Oh Jo - how sad ((hugs)) but kind of them to bring him home. I always think that not knowing is worse.

There's been a change of plans here ... the sensor in the car seat which tells the car that I'm sitting in it and it must swithch on the air bag in case of accident has gone wrong. It had been a bit erratic before the MOT and the garage thought they'd fixed it but the light is on again - they've ordered a new one and can fit it on Monday morning - in the meantime I'm grounded and we won't be going to MIL's this weekend 

You'd think the car would be able to work out that if there's someone driving the car then they're likely to be sitting in the driving seat - why does it need a sensor in the seat to tell it that?

Well done Lou - there's often a back story - and certainly previous bad experiences can colour behaviour, and if you've got health worries that's also going to make you tetchy.   Hopefully they'll be able to relax a bit and enjoy their new home without being on edge and you'll get no more rude behaviour from them.  If they're ok with your cats they can't be all bad.

Jo, the original query was posted in 2013 - the lawn's either been totally overtaken by it or cured by now
