How very kind of you DHR ... 


Have you been leaning over Clare Balding's shoulder or riffling through her handbag?  You must have some sort of inside information ... I'm sure such detail isn't available to ordinary mortals

Morning Wonky   Keep your germs down there please 


Chicky - we've got a Buddleja Miss Ruby right in front of the sitting room window - we can see our flutterbyes from the comfort of the sofa - OH thinks he saw a Hummingbird Hawkmoth flying away from it yesterday evening, but he's not sure ... 


B. Miss Ruby is great - a really deep pinky red - a hint of magenta - not a huge plant, - probably about 5ft at the moment (planted the summer of 2014) and a very elegant shape.  Recommended!

I have no connection.

Not scaremongering at all - mushrooms are said to be growing in brought in turf - there's no knowing what soil/composot/soil conditioners have been used, let alone where the garden is - it could be on a woodland fringe - we get woodland species in this garden - house built in 1960s on old orchard.


To suggest that any fungus is edible over the internet, let alone without a picture is, IMHO totally irresponsible.

I can manage 40 Fairy, 'cos I can borrow OH's fingers and toes - but thank goodness that although he lived there he wasn't born in Lincolnshire, otherwise he'd have webbed feet and I'd get in a terrible muddle 


I keep meaning to say that I bought a pair of these about a month ago http://www.worldofwolf.co.uk/products/comfort-grass-shears--rill.html and they're rapidly becoming my favourite tool - I can trim the grass around the back of the pond so easily now, and loads of other jobs - they're very versatile!

Maybe someone cleverer than us will explain it to us girls very simply Fairy ... goodness knows how I managed to understand it when my son was competing for the county ... it's all so complicated
