Police UK

Posted: Yesterday at 18:45

Unfortunately I think the Police force has fallen victim to the ' target' system where statistics count for more than true performance. When most towns and villages had a beat copper, they would know their district and would prevent lots of crime, however as most of this would go unrecorded.

For us Southern softies it's been perishing cold. Just my luck to get an outside job, 80ft up in the air with no shelter, brrrr.

I grew Demon Red last year. Perfect size for the windowsill and very prolific, producing good quantities of small, medium to hot fruit.

Pet or 'perfect' garden?

Posted: 14/01/2018 at 14:36

I've never had, nor ever will have, a perfect garden. We only have a small garden with a 'scruffy' lawn and the rest is a gravel area and raised flower beds. After the initial 'puppy' stage Floss hasn't had any negative effects on the garden. 

She joins me on the allotment aswell. I'd happily sacrifice a few plants etc for the joy she brings us all. 

Plant Identification - any ideas ??

Yes, definitely chasing squirrels Joyce. Her legs start to twitch as if she was chasing them through the woods.
