Are they perennial wildflower seeds or annuals for wildlife?

Perennials can be sown now into cleared ground.

Annuals would be better sown into a cleared area next March.

If I had that beach to walk on, Verdun, I'd be demanding one too. Trouble with being in the middle of the country is you're just about as far as it can be from the Sea. I could do with a paddle now. 315 miles from here to Porthminster terrace in St Ives. 5 hours on a good run,twelve and a half on a bad one.

Just filled in my passport form in blue ink.. Its got to be in black. Start again,   ooops. Good job I picked up two sets of forms.

The paper last week said the sea off Devon was over 20C. The highest I have ever known it before was 18C  one June, off of Penzance.  20C is positively tropical.

I dont care if I never speak to her again, actually.

I think that to deny a son  being at his own mothers funeral, because we were on an island in the middle of the indian ocean, with two flights a week(fully booked months in advance)is pathetic. She"couldn't hack it" having to wait two weeks for the funeral.

I dont intend leaving anything. I'm planning on spending it all first.

I've got no kids, and there's no pockets in shrouds. So long as there's enough for a funeral and a knees up, that'll do.

When mil died , she died  at 10 am, the funeral was arranged by 3pm, and at 5 sil wanted the details of what money there was. She was  told that she was being a bit previous and it could wait until after the funeral.

Time and a place and all that.

We've not had a holiday in 4 years. Not since sister in law said if mother in law died and we were ona remote island, with 2 flights a week,they would have the funeral without us.

So we've a lot of holiday time to make up.

My families a bit more friendly about that sort of thing.

There are three pixies on that site that look a lot like the bronzes done by David Goode. 

I have David Good bronzes in my  fantasy list for if I win the lottery.  The resin pixies are a lot nearer to what my pocket can afford.  The pixie lying on the flowers is so much a rip off of David Goodes   "comfort food " of one lying in a bed of marshmallows.
