The hedgehog on the mat last night was trying to do the same when I opened the back door.

Prunella vulgaris is flowering in my lawn at the  moment. Google it and see if that matches if you can't upload a photo.

Spend gym membership money on plants, Wintersong. You'll get much more pleasure out of them.

I have very fine hair, straight as pump water. It won't take a perm. I only found one hairdresser who knew how to trim it, then he moved. I used a barber for many years, but he died. Now, when it gets so long that I can tuck it in my knickers, I take the big kitchen scissors and cut six inches off. For work, I put it up in a bun. For diving, I plait it. Most hairdressers just want to cut it to chin length, but it is so fine it would stand on end with static, unless i plaster it down with lacquer which makes my head itch.

Plant id please

Very beautiful pat. It might confuse my hedgehogs however. I seem to have one at the moment who has fallen in love with the prickly boot scraper mat outside the back door. Last year I'm sure one was trying to mate with an upside down plug tray.

He ought to come on one of our days out. That would be a surprise for him.

I'm off to work today. It looks like it has rained here overnight, so I had better turn the soaker hose off now.

Betrothed is a promise.

Wedding is in October.

I may have big boobs and narrow hips, but that's the first time I've been called a snake with tits.

Don't drink too much fire water, Edd

Happy sailing.

Beetroot leaves - stained?

Posted: 20/07/2015 at 22:01

Probably. Only part of the leaf is affected.

No vows yet, Edd. Betrothed after 17 years. There's hope for you yet.
