There used to be one growing wild on the motorway island growing next to a lamppost, until a helpful chap from the council sprayed it.

How close do the kangaroos come, Pat?

I stroked a kangaroo at a wildlife park in Perth, the fur is just so soft. Do you get barking owls? They had some there as well, they sound like a dog barking, not an owl hooting.

They made me laugh anyway.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

When a mutual friend asked me if I thought a divorce would make me happy, I said "eventually". After all , they couldn't see why I would do it. Emotional abuse doesn't leave visible scars. He never hit me .

Hell at the time, and a long time before I trusted another man, and even longer to trust him with my money, but "eventually" it turned out right.

Reluctant foxgloves

Posted: 23/06/2016 at 22:22

Summer king is T&M name for D. x mertonensis. Sometimes they do take two years to flower, but are more perennial than normal foxgloves . Might last four years instead of two. very nice colour though.

Camelot I would rip out if they have flowered this year and put new seeds in for next year now.

 I should point out that I've moved this three times. I always seem to manage to leave a bit behind which comes up again.

Trim it down now, it wlll shoot fresh leaves or die down completely. Split it up or take root cuttings in Spring. Just dig it up as it starts to grow, It will probably fall apart. Plant each bit where you want it. Dont expect flowers the first year.
