cyclamen

Cyclamen hederifolium flower  in the autumn and cyclamen coum in the early spring - both will naturalise in the right conditions.

They both come in white or pink, and there are also some very choice 'collectors' forms with lovely patterning on the leaves.

My thoughts are that if I was the landlord I'd think it was in my interest to provide a cheap lawnmower.  

Trouble for a Landlord is unlike supplying things like fridge (aka plug in, turn on, if it tips over on you that's because you were most likely doing something dodgy) is if a person injured themselves using a lawn mower provided to them where does the Landlord stand in terms of not being sued that it was unsafe / they weren't risk assessed / trained to use it and all other sorts of daft things that stand in the way of common sense? The law is often so wishy washy and people are scared of getting sued over the silliest of things that its often easier not to bother.

Point taken - in that case, my thoughts are that if I was the landlord I'd either mow it myself, pay someone else to mow it or pave or gravel the lot!

That's what I was thinking it might be - David Austin describes Graham Thomas as having a 'Tea' fragrance - that may have confused Wearmydress

People keep telling me about this http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/469046/UK-weather-latest-Britain-set-for-THREE-MONTHS-of-sun-in-mega-heatwave

as you'll see, I've put my new cossie on and popped down to the beach.

Wouldn't it be nice if we did have 3 months of fine weather (as long as we got some rain at night to keep the butts full).  But it'd have to last longer than 3 months wouldn't it?  My tomatoes need it to be sunny until the end of October

I'll have to wave up at the office windows next time I'm in the city Supernoodle, then you can rush out and stop me buying  pairs of shoes in one day again - once is enough 

Fg, not plum coloured, the trainers and sandals are dark aqua - to match the newly painted garden fence, the heeled peeptoes are Cornflower blue, to match my eyes
