Hallo jean - all. Yes looking after the birds well - plenty of food and nice clean water. Just for interest and ref Feverfew I have a repro of Gerards Herbal ( 16th cent and written in old English ( Elizabethan). Heres how he describes it :- "Of Fetherfew". Feverfew bringeth forth many little round stalkes, divided into certaine branches. The leaves are tender, diversly torne and jagged, and nicked on the edges like the first and nethermost leaves of Coriander but greater. The floures stand on the tops of the branches, with a small pale of white leaves, set round about a yellow ball or button, like the wild field Daisie. The root is hard and rough, the whole plant is of a light whitish greene colour, of a strong smell, and bitter taste. Note please I have just copied this - not from memory.
