Individuals constantly repeating themselves. Bore off!

There was a case of this in my parents village. So many cats died that the police are now involved. I hope they catch the heartless, pathetic individual.  The local people have also set up a group to hunt the criminal down.

If I ever caught such a cruel and ignorant person doing this I don't think I could be responsible for my actions. Those that do this are either stupid or plain evil...or both!

Help with Foxgloves please.

Mine have sprouted new leaves since last season but the snow has turned them a bit black. Gonna leave them to do their own thing until it's warmer. The damaged leaves probably act as some form of protection for new growth below.

Chrysanthemums

Great question. I'd like to grow them for the first time too. They are in the Sarah Raven catalogue for 6 rooted cuttings for £8.50.

Lots of sparrows, yellow tits, collared doves and blackbirds here. Gorgeous to see from the kitchen window.

Which one are you going for StarGL?  Is This Love is a classic? Or Only You? So so good!

Got to admit, Push It by Salt and Peper is also an old favourite!  Good one to jiggle ones bits too in a vain attempt to lose a bit of excess mince pie blubber!

What is catching your eye?

thanks for the link. I think I'll give it a miss - sounds slow, and big, and tricky!

I'd like to try growing ginger too. I'd heard it is quite invasive - anyone grown it before?

I can never start the pull cord mowers Lyn! I End up looking like (even more of) a nutter trying to yank ours into life 

On the seeds / plant catalogues; my eyes lit up at the lovely colours and photos in the Sarah Raven one yesterday. I was thinking WOW, I wish I could grow such perfect Blooms!  On closer inspection though, the images look a bit faked. Like they've been doctored or superimposed onto background shots. I wonder if I'm paranoid or if they actually do this??
