I saw on the common during the break in cold spell, a group of starlings having a lovely time in a deep puddle,they looked like they were really enjoying it,cold I would of thought but they must of longed to get rid of those mites.

They certainly had spots and greenish and they only liked the dog food,since bleaching and spraying(with the wrong thing) they have been very crafty and not appeared,and yes health and safety would of  closed me down,which is rather worth thinking about as going out to dine seems a good choice but of course I would be done by the R.S.P.C A for slugs,

I have the same problem by the side of the house ,some one has built a extension that looks like a toilet block and I have to look at it.I am hoping to get him to  grow a clematis Montana up it ,one its quick and looks good and you can clip it into shape and I will have something nicer to look at but I suspect I will have to put some trellis up and do it my my self.

well,if you take a few leaves that are not affected you may grow some more,its sad when you lose a plant but do try and see if you can bring it in leave it alone for awhile and who knows it might come true.sometimes it does.

This one I have saved a few times from fate mainly over watering or draughts but I have many replacements they are easy to do although it takes time to get big.hope yours heals.
