Oooh!  Blue skies - that looks lovely Chicky - whereabouts is it?

Flippin chilly here - just turned the heating up a bit. 

The birds have finished squabbling over the raisins and are all snuggling up in the neighbours' laurel and pyracantha hedges.

For several months the only green thing my toddler niece would eat was 'cumber - but eat it she did, morning noon and night.  After that she would eat 'cumber and carrot - a few months later it was 'cumber, carrot and Baby Gem lettuce with mayo ... she got there eventually.

But she's never been keen on potato - but her Daddy is a potato farmer and she knows just how to press his buttons LOL

I think it could be Clavulina cristata - White coral fungus

I don't think it'll do any damage.

I have never ever given my children a different meal to the grown ups - really really bad idea in my humble opinion.   It has meant that sometimes the grown ups have had to eat a milder curry than they would normally choose, but that's part of what being grown up is all about.

Part of my professional role was to support and advise re parenting issues.

You can get varieties of ivy with quite small close-growing leaves - I think they'd be ideal

Yes please - progress reports with photos

Interesting plants are interesting plants - I grow quite a few British natives that other people may consider to be weeds

Not sure that Datura or Nicandra are considered to be natives of the UK or the Netherlands

Daughter phoned to say the streets were very icy at 6am as she was walking to work and she's glad she's old enough to wear sensible shoes  - she's doing a split shift today so will be at home now until 4ish and then working this evening and walking home in the ice tonight Brrrrrrrrr!  Bless her!!!

I've been out and thawed the birds' water and put out porridge oats, raisins and no mess ground feed, topped up the feeders and told the blackbirds to be nicer to the chaffinches and dunnocks
