Good morning all   

Early to bed and early to rise here - and the birds are singing.

Looks like the pond's had a bit of a top up overnight - and the temp only went down to 12.6C

Mini pond

Posted: 06/04/2014 at 20:46

Native hornwort, doesn't need planting - you just throw it in and it sort of floats about and grows without you having to do anything - perfect for a mini pond

Verdun - that's brilliant news - so very glad for your mum and all who love her 


My Pa had a stroke in 1998 when he was 78 - he too made a full recovery and even got his driving licence back - he continued to drive perfectly well for another 5 years or so!

So I really hope that this blip doesn't affect your Mum's enjoyment of life ((hugs))

Yes, a lovely mix of seeds - but I could do without the hawkbit - in fact I could probably supply them with enough hawkbit seeds from our front lawn - anyone want any if I don't get around to mowing?

What is this?

Yes, here's some info re oxalis - it can be a pest - scroll down and you'll see the one you've got 

Try to get rid of it - you'll never succeed totally, but keep trying like the rest of us 

Good luck!
