Afternoon...

.....   I can remember the days when there were only three channels in the world and BBC used the test card when it wasn't showing anything and channel Four was brand new and didn't start until the afternoon, that's how young I am

Dove, don't forget its give and take, not just give

I remember when there was only one channel!  When we moved to a farm in Suffolk from Bedfordshire we took our tv with us - the only problem was that there was no electricity in the village we moved to - villagers would come and gaze at the tv with no idea what it did - by the time electricity came to our village there was an ITV channel as well as BBC - but our tv wasn't equipped to get ITV so all the other children at school watched ITV programmes and we could only watch BBC

 

and ...... Yes Miss

I don't think it's going to root with just a leaf and leafstem - it needs to be a cutting taken from a main stem.

See information here about preparing a semi ripe cutting http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/projects/creative-projects/how-to-take-semi-ripe-cuttings/301.html

Celandine - ranunculus ficaria - pretty wild spring flower but can be invasive.

Wild arum, aka Jack in the pulpit, Cuckoo Pint, Lords & Ladies - Arum maculatum.  Another wild flower, can be invasive, toxic berries in the autumn. 

I love them both

Well said Steve   a subject very close to my heart too - there are far too many greedy, ignorant and uncaring people producing puppies, poor scrappy little things with heart problems and other defects caused by in-breeding or breeding from bitches carrying genes for hereditary problems.  You can't always tell by looking at them!  However the problems lead to huge expense and often misery for the dog and heartbreak for the owners.

However, a good breeder who understands what they're doing, takes advice from a good vet and cares about their reputation and the puppies they produce is a treasure.  It's well worth paying a premium for a properly produced puppy.  Even a cross-breed costs money to produce properly.

Rant over
