Good morning all G'day Pat 

Not a tree I know - sorry Pat. 

It's beautifully sunny in the east and dark grey in the west. The forecast says cold windy and showery.

It may be a day to stay indoors and make biscuits and watch the Gold Cup. ... and of course, happy St Patricks Day to all our Irish friends 

Have a good day Chicky - it's Friday!

Invasive Ivy Roots

My guess is that you water the plants in the raised bed and that the ivy roots are inexorably drawn to the moisture. I've found tree roots growing upwards into raised veggie beds for the same reason. 

You can buy a membrane to control tree roots. Don't know the name but I've seen it online. 

Good luck

My guess is that the dairy delivery drivers' union had a lawyer who was very hot on drafting documents and had a keen eye for punctuation.

It's turned quite grey and dreary outside here in Norfolk - the wind has got up and the heating has come on. 

Wrap up warm Fairy, Joyce, LirI, Lily P and anyone else in northern parts. .... Speaking of which, I hope Bushman is ok ((hugs))
