out riding the Mendip hills in the lovely summer sun.(It is breezy up here on blackdown).The bracken has now grown and is hiding the path to top and in between the wild flowers grow.As we reach the top the Exmoor ponies are all standing on the trig(.to get the breeze I guess).we ride the what is normally a boggy path in winter across the top and I see drifts of white cotton ,bog grass,not normally noticable and indeed as the poem says...beware.For here in winter it is very deep pools of mud and you can not cross it,even now you can not as its very rutty,but it looks so beautifull drifting across moorland and in the distance you see Brent knoll an old volcanic hill standing out in bridgewater flats.
they live in my daughters garden in among the dead leaves and under rubble or metal sheets.They have to keep a low profile as her hens rather like the small ones for tea.
fox tail lilies,ooo I would love to be able to grow these but i have very heavy clay soil.
thats the way to do it and it takes no time at all depending on the size of your lawn.good work stefanib

makes you wonder what kind of plant theif makes a gardener.I know my mother often had plants stolen from her garden and after much ado it was found to be the local postman selling the at a car boot sell.
no,you will have to buy or take a cutting from another such plant.Buddliea comes in many lovely colours and is easy to grow and propogate.
