I love your knitivity,Pam.

I spent two and a half hours watching Felix last night right up until he jumped out. Just at that moment my grandson, who lives next door came round and said his mam said not to worry but an ambulance was on it's way as my son had accidently eaten something with sesame oil and had to use his EpiPen. He was bright red and blown up like Felix's balloon.  He's had reactions to sesame seeds before but never had to use the EpiPen. They didn't release him from hospital until 2.30 this morning so Granny was babysitting until then. Nasty scare at the time.

So I didn't know whether Felix had landed safely until later.

Watched Downton too. Really sad.

Flo, you're right but he's got to go up before he can come down.

Still can't decide if he's mad or very brave.

Hello Inka,

I didn't realise you were short of water. Must be such a relief that it has rained.

Hi  F.Fs

Forgot about the skydive man and turned news on just in time to see him start the ascent. Good luck to him.

Good morning F.Fs,

Pleased that everyone has food at last, is over their lurgies and Inka has rain.

Love your glory lily ,Gary.

I watched 'Have I got news for you' last night. They were talking about the skydiver, Felix Baumgartner.  Someone said,' and if you are watching a repeat of this on Dave, the late Felix Baumgartner. It's supposed to go ahead tomorrow.

Oh I don't fancy Dartmoor, Geoff. I passed it in the summer once and looked very bleak and cold.

Did you remember to pre-breathe, Geoff?

I've been waiting for a police raid since someone posted about the pensioners buying a plant from a car boot. I bought a plant from a car boot a few years ago. It died off in the winter but last year and this year seedlings  have come up.  It's too late to flower this year but when it does the flowers are purple with a yellow centre, similar to potato flowers. I think it's some sort of solanum. If not will you please visit me in prison.

Oh, Kate I'm disappointed now. Fritillaries do seem to need special conditions though so I can only try. 

Geoff, aren't chickens horrible when they catch something alive? One runs arround with it dangling out of it's mouth with the others chasing it. Mine caught a toad and I'm sure they couldn't have ate it. Supposed to taste awful and are poisonous. I managed to rescue the toad but I  don't know if it survived, didn't look too happy.

I took down and emptied out a window box this morning. It was full of vine weevil grubs. I'm sure I gave it a dose of provado earlier but must need a couple of doses. Chickens were grateful for the feast.

Good morning F.Fs

Lovely photos Jean and Chris.

Lottie are you going to Soton to view the house next door to Geoff?

Gave myself a treat and ordered some fritillary bulbs after seeing them on GW last week. I think if I plant them in the garden the squirrels and rabbits will have them so I'll pot them up and plant them out after flowering next year. They have included 15 peach tulips with order free.
