It looks like an osteospermum. As we had little frost last year it survived the winter. It may be hardier now it is bigger,but I wouldn't risk it. Take cuttings of unflowered shoots now, dip in rooting powder and plant in a pot of gritty compost. Keep frost free and on the dryish side over winter. Pot on in spring and plant out in late may or early june.

Plant ID please

Or get a squirrel to do it for you.

I let the squirrels and jays have their fill, and just mow up the leaves afterwards.

We're just looking for a new underwater camera for holiday. There is a clever little ricoh with a ring flash that needs no housing down to 14m which should be ok for muck diving for critters. I'm very tempted. Expect some pics of weird and wonderful when we get back.

Lyn, my dad is the same, things have to get really bad before he will say. If we ask himif hes had a drink, he goes nag,nag,nag. He will blatantly lie to get back home. All sweetness and light with the nurses and cantankerous with the family. Selective deafness as regards not being allowed to drive, my brother has had to remove the car keys.    The trouble is my mum does her best to cope but she is 81. Sometimes i think it would be easier to train a labrador.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
