Sanjy thanks   but how embarrasing I'd forgotten about doing that - retired for 18 months and my IT skills are disappearing

However, although I know I've seen that plant recently, I don't know it's name - but someone will .........

Hurrah Lolabee, you've filled in your Public Profile - that's great - so few people do.    And how fantastic that you've got toads - they'll gobble up any slugs that appear.

But I'm afraid I can't see your pic well enough to ID it - have you got access to a pc/laptop/tablet or whatever? 

pretty but what is it?

Hi Lolabee and welcome

Clari - you're right - BSL will be a very useful string to your bow, particularly working as you do alongside Education. 

As part of my work (before I retired) I learned Signalong - a sort of simplified version of BSL, used by people with learning difficulties who also have communication problems.  Great fun, and incredibly useful

anyone have one of these?

If that's a geranium I'm Sophia Loren!

But I haven't the foggiest what it is - it looks like an umbellifer, but not like any I know.  Where's Nut and Landgirl???

Chickweed - a common weed of disturbed land - it got it's name as it was chopped up and fed to young poultry.  Cagebirds like it too - and it's very good as a salad veg or in an egg sarnie

Candytuft or weed
