Where was your pic from Dove? It looks very much like the one at Hylands House in Chelmsford 

I found the pic online Panda - I chose it 'cos it really demonstrates how it works - it's from Titsey Place in Surrey    Never been there myself, but the grounds and walled garden look lovely in the photos, and as I'm particularly interested in British native and rare breeds I love the cattle too.

I used to have a car with heated seats - had to remember not to wear waxed riding mac when driving

Don't want to buy a little tv as we've had a lot of expenses lately and may have to buy a big one - this one is quite elderly - but it's never been any trouble, until today.

Harrumph!!!   We've just had to take the tv (our only tv!!!) to the menders.  It won't switch on .......... aaaargh!!!!!!!  When I asked 'how long' they said they hoped to be able to look at it within the next few days, and then - if they have to order a part .......... how long's a piece of string ............ I only have OH, you lot and the radio to amuse me

You could plant or sow a few Eryngium giganteum - it's not for nothing that they're called Miss Wilmott's Ghost - if the prickles don't keep them away from the area, the pale ghostly figures dancing in the breeze should put the wind up the gents once they're well 'tanked up'.

Jo, that website is based in Australia - it looks as they have different 'common names' there - Pat could probably confirm
