The top one looks like a barlow black and the next one a stellata form. Are they on the same plant or separate seedlings?

I think something had more than a fright in my garden. There is a big pile of white feathers on the lawn. I think the sparrowhawk got to feed its babies.

Ducks seem to have deserted us, I think she might have finally laid eggs.

We seem to have two hedgehogs living very close by. They come on to the patio for food around 9Pm, while it is still light.

OH says   I can have a day trip to the seaside. He wants to go to North Wales, I think to check on his sisters house. Its not far from Crug farm plants. I feel a plant hunting expedition coming on. I am already drawing up a list. Anyone in the vicinity fancy a visit?'

It will probably be Thursday.

I am glad I don't do exams any more, they use to give me nightmares.

As it is high on nitrogen, it will make grass grow faster. I hope you like mowing.

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