Wow!  Just been asking Mr Google about it - seems it was a lot more serious than I thought - 5 people died in Santa Cruz.  We were at the other end of the island and it was bad enough there.

What have the Romans ever done for us?  Sycamore and ground elder, that's what.  They used to eat it.

Moles in my compost bins.

Quite - why not leave them there?  You really don't want them elsewhere in the garden - and they WILL go elsewhere nearby if they're disturbed.  I have voles in mine - again, better than them digging tunnels under the veg and eating the roots, except that they do that as well....

Evening all

Great pictures of the poppies at the Tower, Lily.  We're thinking of going there tomorrow - is it still horribly expensive?  And how  much of it is under cover?  cos it's forecast to rain for much of the day...

Are you cutting them down in Feb and giving them lots of leaf mould?  Mine have done really well this year.

Yes - that's what I thought.  Glad it's not just my opinion then!
