Tina- it was a man.

I could try Jeyes on my fence!

If it keeps cats out....

Sorry Verd- forgot you were there! Hello 

I know you're not really Jonathan Creek...but do you have the same initials...JC????

Only half my name's right- I'm not a real fairy....I know -sorry I've been misleading you all 

Tina- I think Verd did this thread on here a while back. Or I've been in a parallel universe.

Do you do lots of diving fidget? I've got a niece who teaches diving in Thailand.

B-Lizzie  I worked with horses for 20 years and we always used Jeyes for washing down stables and drains etc. Brilliant stuff for disinfecting anything animal related!

Probably horrendously carcinogenic though

I'm hopeless with them nut! I used to get big ones in my bedroom as a child and some were very furry and had - to my eyes- little horns so I was terrified of them! There was an old chair of my Gran's stuffed with horse hair etc and I think some were living in the upholstery. When I had my first daughter she didn't see any difference between moths or butterflies or any other insect and I tried to be like her - didn't want to pass on my hang up about them!

But, try as I might, I still find them strangely disconcerting.....

Lindsay I'd have to agree with fidget. I had a fairly large maple at the front gate of a previous house.  It didn't block any light due to it's aspect and was particularly splendid in Autumn. There was some woodland beyond that so it wasn't out of place and wasn't an issue in any way. It never had weeping sap in all the 16 years I lived there so maybe yours does need a little check up to see if something's wrong.

Punkdoc- I like the idea of Christo Lloyd getting into some ripped clothes with safety pins
and doing his hair in spikes (with Fairy liquid to keep it in place...I know the tricks!) and listening to the Sex Pistols....

Verdun looks like Jonathan Creek- he has a duffle coat...

break - Dove is female. 

I'm a girl- hence my name...I calls it as I sees it.

I missed that moon - slept too soundly - eventually.

Have a good day at work Dove - not too many to go now 

Don't think strawbs and weetabix will catch on at SW19 Gilly 

Glad we missed the wild winds yesterday some of you had- nothing that strong here although it was unpleasantly cold and wet. I'mhoping to get on outside later though my undergardener is going out for lunch with a friend. She never asked for time off..

Are they the big ones Gilly? Think I asked you the other day but you probably didn't see my post.

Never seen one - I'd probably run a mile! I'm a real coward when it comes to moths - silly I know. Stems from childhood. I'm trying to see them as just slightly duller butterflies - not sure it's working though! ....
