I found one yesterday, I thought it was a ladybird at first, sunning itself on my Mona Lisa!

 I've been growing lilies up here in Northumberland for nearly 25 years and this is the first time I've ever even seen one!

After reading the forum I will be out again today looking for signs of eggs or grubs.

When our Daughter was little she would send a note to the tooth fairy with the tooth and put it under her pillow.

We had a right old time constructing replies to her from "the tooth fairy" and seeing the delight she had in receiving a response was priceless!

When the In-laws were starting a family our children were very inquisitive as to what the sex of the new baby might be.

I used to say to them "We don't know if it's a boy or girl so I'm not sure if I'm going to be an Auntie or an Uncle"

They never twigged!

Funny you should say that, I remember going into the chemists as a kid and asking for all sorts of gunpowder ingredients.

It was ok as long as I said "It's for my chemistry set"!

It wouldn't happen now although the youth of today would probably be more interested cooking up more mind bending recipes!

Sodium Chlorate would have done the trick but I haven't seen it for years, banned maybe?

Does tend to sterilise the garden for months afterwards so best left alone!

What is best around decking

No worries Jess. I know they can get to outgrow themselves after a couple of years!

I just got a Phormium "Yellow wave" to replace a frost killed one and I am in two minds whether to use it for my decking project this year.

I quite fancy a Stipa but the small one seems too small and the big one too big! I I'm only planning to plant in the corners as the deck will be straight onto the lawn with just a small pebble cutting edge. If I had the room I would go for the likes of Rogersia or ligularia "The Rocket" against decking as I've seen it in this situ before and it looks great!
