I have 3 cats and i dont mind the neighbours squirting them with water. I keep pots around the garden with soil in that mine use. Throwing stones is just cruel. Have put sticks etc in some pots to stop them and they all rooted. Yet more plants to find homes for.

You should be glad you dont have irritable bowel. Its either one thing or the other . Love red dwarf. First saw the cat in the show Time he was understudy for one of the lead actors and so much better. Back to Drs again today think i ought to have a seat named after me.

Inspiration and ideas needed

Poundland is brilliant for bulbs also try Wilkinsons. Have bought many from there and the majority grow. Local nuseries seem to be cheaper for plants than the big chains. Look on sale benches at gerden centres i always seem to find a bargain or 2. In the summer local fairs seem to have plant stalls and have found lots of pots at car boots.

I happened to be on the loo when they cleaned the window. Very difficult trying to hide. Last time they caught my daughter in the all together in the bathroom. I do hope they are not making a habit of it.

Found that a lycestra has seeded itself in a pot with a yucca. Both plants doing well so havent the heart to disturb them. No-one else has got one si thinking squirrels might have helped.
