Thank you Bob! While I agree that one should not eat mushrooms one does not know, James asked about those particular ones and they are definitely field mushrooms, no others look like that.

Rubbish, I have been collecting mushrooms for years and there is NO poisonous mushroom that looks like that. I have several wild mushroom books and have looked these up. It is a very clear picture and they are definitely field mushrooms! Carbolic mushrooms are not poisonous, but they taste horrible and you would spit them out after one bite!

Good morning folks!

"just looked at cuttings which aren't doing well at all - will wine help?" I don't know if getting those cuttings drunk will help, Mrs. G!

Love the dog, Chicky, is he a Schnauzer?

Good luck Maud, hope it solves the problem.

Someone is advertising a hotel in Paris, have told them we are not Tripadvisor!

Sunny here again today, could do with some rain too, getting sick of having to water everything. Grass (more dandelions and weeds than lawn!) mowing on to-do list today.  Other than that will just relax.

This isn't Tripadviser, I think you're in the wrong forum!

I can second the bit about the muck spreading, the farmers here do it just before rain is due, whew! Had an American boss once, he used to say "the farmer's out with the honey wagon again".

Morning everyone

Nice and sunny again here today. Still haven't mowed the grass, must do it today. French runners are finally producing, had thought they were going to be a no go. Have just read on another post to pinch out the tops, will do that today. Other than that, no jobs to do today, just look and enjoy.

Not much longer now Dove, are you crossing off the days on your calender?

By for now, will look in again later.

when i had cats.. i kept an area of my flower beds empty and bare.. dug it over regularlary and my cats always used it.. as did others.. but mine never went anywhere else.. as it was soft and easy for them dig..

so maybe other cat owners could do the same..

Exactly, I have the same and I gave my neighbour a big bottle of Jeyes Fluid too, no cats have visited her since, at least not ours!
