Hi mksmithy  

It all depends whether the growing point has been eaten - could you post a pic on here and we'll see if we have any clues (click on the tree icon on the toolbar above where you type yur post)

That looks as if it's cross-pollinated with a polyanthus-type primula - they're very promiscuous.

That was my other thought - the right time of year for morels so I'm ever hopeful of seeing some at this time of year.  There are a couple of sites here in Norfolk - locations are a closely guarded secret.


Jack by the hedge. In fact lots of jack by the hedge!

I was with Nut when we found this  - I err towards 'some sort of morel'. 

I think I saw it the day before this photo was taken - it was certainly 'closer to the ground' and there was no sign of the 'egg' as I would expect with a young stinkhorn, and certainly no smell that either I or OH noticed, and I got down onto the ground to look at it.

Fritillary - love them - when we had the smallholding we used to rear 4 Hereford x bullocks every 12 months or so

I don't like the look of the solar parks, we've got several about here too, but at least when technology improves they'll be relatively simple to deconstruct, unlike these

Susan, just a guess but did they look anything like these?


 Charolais bullocks - they're a lovely teddy bear colour

Try here

I've not used them for lawnmower spares, but I've used them for other things and they've been very good.

Try contacting the manufacturers for a manual, or even ebay.

Unless,you have a dedicated wildlife area avoid bluebells.  They are aggressively invasive least for me.  Shock! Horror! cos I know bluebells are so loved 


Verdun, I think that's 'cos you live down there in that Paradise called Cornwall where anything and everything grows - up here in the cooler East of England English Native bluebells are not that rampant - however, the Spanish ones are!
