There are some youtube clips. We used to go to all the 

folk festivals from late 70' to late 80's they were always good for a laugh!

Planting up my grandmother's abandoned grave

Posted: 17/10/2014 at 13:04

This site is so well maintained that you wont be able to drop as much a buttercup in there.

Its swept twice a day, bins emptied 3 times a day.

They do their own planting of what suits the wildlife in that area, even the compost bins are worked for ecological value.

 They have won awards for best kept grounds for cleanliness and wildlife. They have trained staff who patrol the site every single day.

Definitely wont need gardening tools to find it, no need for a mashete!

Just leave them for now then when you see new shoots in the Spring, just chop back to the ground. They will appreciate a nice thick mulch ready for winter, homemade compost, well rooted farm muck or just a pile of leaves.

No chance here then, its a beautiful plant though. It has yellow flowers as well as the striking coloured leaves.

My cousin and his family live in Norfolk, and who remembers the great Kipper Family?

Moth of the day

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 22:06

I used to go absolutely hysterical over moths but when I had my first baby I made up my mind to cure myself of the phobia.  I started very slowly but did get over it and now, but only over the past few years I can catch them and hold them.

What I have never been able to get over is crane flys, if there is one in the house I wont go in that room until I see it caught then put outside. Silly really, but there we are.

Hey! You have my snail, I saw one then he was gone, can you send him back?

We can blame Homeleigh Garden Centre for that!
