Would members be interested?

Trev's never come back.

Do you think he was winding us up?

Or was someone winding him up?

cancer has meant I can't manage my garden

For every person that can no longer manage their garden there'll be someone who would love a garden to manage. Matching them up is the problem.

If you don't want to tell it here, what about a new thread

Yes to yarrow,  daisy, birdsfoot trefoil, clovers, 

if you get buttercups get the meadow ones, Ranunculus acris, not the creeping ones but they do need a bit of height before they flower.

Also green in my lawn but won't flower if mowed are yellow bedstraw, marjoram,  agrimony and cat's ear

Prostrate thymes and small mints also worth considering

I wash my bird bath out quit often as it gets quite mucky looking with them all washing in there. Then they drink their own bath water

They are enormous Forester but this pic is from last year and I can't remember whose hand that is which doesn't help in assessing size.
