Poppy (ladybird) plant

It's an annual, so will die after flowering. Let the seed heads go Brown, then scatter them around for next year.

I prepare the soil before planting with blood fish and bone. I don't feed after that. They like a lot of water, but they are certainly getting that this year.

Fly maggots from rotting vegetation. Spraying the bin with  household fly spray should kill themm. Give it a huge squirt and shut the lid.

I know the nutters always claim that their God is on their side. I was reminded of this while perusing an auction site. A german WW2 belt buckle with (God is with us in german) on it. The men fighting the Germans also thought  that God was on their side. All Abrahamic faiths have a common starting point in a translation of the Old Testament.  Thou shalt not kill.

I had an argument with a catholic priest who was bought in in an attempt to convert me when I married my first husband. The Irish troubles were at the height. My brother in law was a catholic british soldier, who dared not visit family in Northern Ireland because it would make them a target.His mother sat glued to the news every night, hoping it was not a member of her family being blown up.One mans freedom fighter is another mans terrorist.Protestants versus Catholics. All supposedly Christian. Thou shalt not kill.

As  I said to the priest. If that is religion , you can stuff it.

A sad day for all peace loving people.

I caught the news just before midnight last night. I hardly slept.  It got worse, the figures came in, another gunman on the run, hostages in hotels. It seems total chaos.

All in the name of religion.
