Not a plant I know intimately but

My first though was echiveria

Folk-lore. Any truth in it?

re the gregariousness of of rooks. 

There's a saying

'One rook is a crow. A group of crows are rooks.'

Is that folklore

Cyclamen Coum

Cyclamen coum are very variable in leaf and flower. I'd go to  a nursery and choose them in leaf. 

RHS Plantfinder (this seems to have got much more complex since I last used it) will find the plant you put in a search and a supplying nursery near you.

Nurseries are very different to garden Centres. Their business is knowing and growing plants rather than selling massed produced plants

My feeling is that mine was coincidental

I wouldn't have gone back for more otherwise

I'd need a lot of hackles and I haven't got them so I just flatten before mowing. Have to be quick though or their back before I get the blades down

I don't believe any of the long term predictions, they're only based on what happen last time it was like this in October. But in the short term I can hope for better this weekend

I used to have them years agoDove, almost compulsory with the job.

Then I started again more recently. One year I was proper poorly for days afterwards and I've never  worked out if it was the jab or  a coincidental illness
