what you find when out walking

The black cat we saw at Up Cerne was big and that very hot day was sitting sunny himself ,and we were afraid that day.At Churchill on the mendips where I ride we had a scare for awhile of a big cat,which in fairness it could hide very well there but it was never caught and we never saw it out riding.as for finding a toddler,well its the only one I found in a country lane others have been wandering roads in town!

poinsetta plant

I am  a great killer of poinsettias because I want to water and fuss them,my daughter on the other hand who has not a clue about plants has kept her poinsettia just by sheer neglect.They don't like a lot of water ,draughts and have to stay in the dark for the leaves to turn red ,so I am trying the neglect method.

Slimey, mossy courtyard, help please!

I have the same problem except I have steps to contend with as well,and often I have gone head over heels on the green slime that comes with all the wet.I now wash it down with soapy water and brush it well ,an on going thing in winter.
