autumn crocus

I did try to grow them. I spent a lot of money on buying them. Two weeks after planting them the badgers dug them up and ate them. Every one of them. Never again.

Maybe other people have known about this for years, but I have just discovered that a clean, well-scrubbed and dried piece of old flowerpot, put into a storage jar keeps brown sugar soft and free-flowing. It has to be the red clay type, not the plastic ones

Could it be genetic? When I was young I slept like a log while my mother was tramping around the house at 3 and 4 in the morning. I used to think "silly old fool, why doesn't she just go to sleep?" but now that I am the same age as she was I too am tramping around the house all night looking for quiet things to do while others sleep. I woke up at 2.48 this morning and never got back to the land of nod. Exhausted, yes.
