I once saw a hoopoe in Suffolk - blown over from the continent on strong winds in late March - they do turn up in the southern UK but they're really a bird of southern France, Spain and areas bordering the Med. http://www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/discoverandlearn/birdguide/name/h/hoopoe/

They have a very distinctive flight, more like a butterfly than a bird

Plant ID please

A friend on a cookery forum has this suddenly appeared in a plant pot used for tomatoes last year.  It is 4-6 inches across and she says it 'has no height to it'. 

My best thought is that it's a bit like radicchio but she can't think where it's come from.  She grew some mixed salad leaves a few years ago, but not in that pot.

 Anyone got any better ideas?

It's ok KEF - Edd has explained himself on the Hello Forker's thread - I think he sometimes has the typist's equavelent of 'Foot in Mouth' syndrome

Good morning all

Thank you Edd - I understand and appreciate your kind thoughts - along with everyone else here, you've all been very kind

Great news Matty - onwards and upwards

BL, take it easy and get well soon

Everyone else with aches, pains, sprains, lurgies or sadness - have a load of ((hugs))

It's so lovely to see the hedgebanks full of primroses as I drive through the countryside at the moment.  Hope you see lots of them Pdoc - are you doing North Norfolk or Minsmere or one of the smaller reserves?

Thank you all ((hugs))

Ma took the news quite well, a few tears and appropriate words, then a look of confusion and she said, "I've never heard that he had a wife?" ... we talked it through again and we found a lovely photograph of them together a few years ago; it was on her bookshelf so we moved it to her dressing table where she could see it and it seemed that she was joining the right dots ... but the carer said that after we'd gone she asked to go and sit with him as usual, so she took her into his room and she could see that he wasn't there, and they sat and talked it through again - she said Ma was fine. It seems that she feels that she's lost a friend rather than a husband of 68 years ... it may be better that way.

who? what?
