Hi Edd, glad you and the wee fella liked them

What are your favourite native flowers?

I actually like the dandelion and daisy, they just remind me of childhood playing in the park

Just had an Apple, When I shook it the pips inside rattled. I cannot think what the variety is called, is it coxan Orange pipping?

I agree with Edd on this one, I live in Aberdeen, the granite city, sadly granite is not quarried in the UK anymore so the carbon footprint with this stone now is quite high. Also its an expensive stone to buy. We got a nice artificial black worktop with white flicks in it from B&Q

I got a herb last year and it flowered between November and December. So far this year plenty of green growth but no flowers yet. It's in a large pot on the patio semi shade. Any thoughts?

Enough is enough.

I'm glad I did not see that

I remember when I was at school we had a boy who would talk and disrupt the class. He was always getting told off. It turn out he had a very unhappy home life, his parents never spoke to him. So he enjoyed getting told off because someone was acknowledging him.

I'm no social worker, but I think there is more behind the scenes to this.
