My daughter left one in the loft last year, it grew a long stalk and frightened the life out of her when she went up there.

Although I am busy because it all falls to me, I, like Lesley am really glad I am an only child. When my OH's mum was ill in hospital they all had to ring each other everytime one wanted to do anything. 

If anything was bought they all felt they had to chip in, I was used to buying a present and giving it without other people wanting to give me 2.00 towards it. Maybe I just dont understand how big families work, that's what my OH said.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

We had the annual huge cloud of starlings come this weekend, they have always arrived at the end of September before, fortunately they by passed us and went the farm along the road. 

I love to see the formation of them sweeping in, then change direction.

I dont mind feeding a few, they dont stay for long.

I have some tomato feed with sea weed extract, would that do. Usually I just chuck on a pile of homemade compost?

Susan, Same as Verdun, they got rust, even with early spraying with anti fungal, they still got it.

I have a dozen or so seedlings up, only because they were free in the magazine, they are all red I think.

Main problem here is the wind, I have to stake a daisy, (well, almost) but its always windy, I am not sure if they like our acid soil. But they never have done very well.

Thanks to the seed swap thread I now have foxgloves and delphs in all of the colours and all of the sizes. Brilliant, I am thrilled.
