Power Rangers Hazel?  Power Monkeys  B****y hilarious. Watching it on tv now. Episode 5 coming up ..

Then I need to do something productive since walking's not on the cards...

Daughter likes those Soothers. I love the cough sweets that taste of aniseed - even when I don't have a cough either RB   

I'm not commenting on the referendum fallout, other than to say my mortgage cost a fortune in the 80's because interest rates were 15%. We live a long time - things will always swing back and forward -sometimes we win sometimes we lose....

We always need a back up plan. Mine's the cabin in the woods living on twigs and berries....as long as there's a Sainsbury's fairly near.....

Plant ID

I'd say Dog Rose for 4, not Cistus

I always think Star of B is a lovely plant. Worth having 

I'd have said Anthemis for the last one too. The bits of feathery foliage look right - assuming they're coming from the same plant

I may have to go out this afternoon and record it fidget. My blood pressure won't cope with watching live...

Fidget - so true. We complain about such small things yet we're so fortunate 

The talk of honey combined with your post reminded me - I watched that new Brian Cox programme last night. The boy collecting the honey.....  we just have to go to a shop....

Hosta - have a good day. Just smile at the lovely customers....

I'm watching Power Monkeys online...

In a word  Joyce - no! Forecast's dire even at this height    

Morning all/afties Pat. Hope that throat gets better soon. Worse when you have visitors coming too 

Honey   The bees would never be in any danger of me pinching it

An Asda 'special' flowers - daughter works there part time. Can't believe you've never heard of it though! We have a very good curry house near here though - they make superb pakora, and curries  

I used to make it when the girls were small and I had time to be a domestic goddess 

B3 - I have an adblocker, but I'm almost tempted to switch it off

Oooh - love a bit of lichen B3 

It's all that good clean air - unlike that polluted stuff in the south....
