Pay as you go would have me changing my technique. Our local library is small so I take anything I haven't read, (ignoring one or two types of novel)  and reject anything unreadable later on.

The central library involves carrying books too far and paying to park. There are larger local libraries but they're some miles away.

Ours are now run by a private company, not the council. They run all the leisure stuff and some areas are much improved by this. I have fears for the libraries though. Maybe unfounded. I hope so.

I would pay, not much because I haven't got much.

Annual subscription, I wouldn't want to pay per item because some of the items aren't worth paying for.

I'm old and 3 miles or so from a library. I read a lot

I'm considering electronic books, wouldn't have to go to the library and could never forget one and get overdue

Have I covered it?

I had 3 of these for 5 or 6 years. I don't think I had that many berries between the 3 of them in all that time

How long before someone comes up with the old 'lots of berries means a hard winter' myth

Spring bulbs growing now

Hi Liz, sorry to hear your dad had died but glad you're taking over the graden

I don't think 1 is a snowdrop, it could be one of the muscaris

2 is an anemone

3 may be Iris reticulata or similar

4 could be an allium from the way its leaves have collapsed

Perennial planting time?

I wouldn't plant out either of those at this end of the year. A cold frame as Dave suggests or a cold GH would be my choice
