Tracey, one of those camellias jumped into my trolley at Lidl the other day too!

The brugmanwhatsit used to be called datura or angels trumpet, you can get high by chewing the seeds! They are very impressive though.

I can hear something singing right now, think it's a blackbird, yay! It's 6.30 a.m. here and still dark, but just lighting up in the east.

Only sparrows in my garden, dozens of them! They've chased all the others away, hardly seen a blue tit or a blackbird this winter.
