I see that Hayloft have their offer of 10 for 10 pounds again, mine came from there a couple of years ago, I dont often buy any plants but tempted with this offer and a 10% discount on this site.

Gardeners who love their feline friends

We name everything too, I had Bonnie and Clyde, a pair of Light Sussex.

A cockerel call Gregory (peck)

My cats have been,..Tammy, George, Penny, Jeoffrey, Pippa, Pru, whiskey, Shandy, Lucy, Rosie, Tigger, and now, Thomas.

Our pheasants we just call Mr and Mrs P. If that fox takes up permanent residence I will have to name him.

Claire, I read that you were a vet, I didnt think you were being rude at all, no worries

Lovely cakes Marion, I have finished mine now, marzipan and icing. I have now taken a piece of paper and pen to bed so I can jot things down when I wake up, must write note to finish mulching dahlias in case of frost, our weather is much like yours I think Marion, what we call 'hanging) just damp, mild and mucky.
