Salt's bad enough though

Learn summat new everyday Joyce! 

Perhaps I've always thought of them as annual because my Grandpa did them every year

Daughter made me some 'fairy cakes' though 

Hope everyone with a birthday has a lovely day though. Have a little cake on me....

Really vile stuff - and isn't it illegal now anyway?

I use a hoe and a bit of proprietary weedkiller on stubborn bits. Takes hardly any time

I wasn't sure about those B'cupdays - I just remember my Grandpa growing them  

I don't think they survive up here with the wet weather, and are mostly grown as annuals.

We had the paint conversation at work recently, so I can add a couple more suggestions for 'alternative' paint names - Hearing Aid Beige and Colostomy Bag Brown.

The others weren't suitable for putting on here....
