Thank you all for the kind words re Harry - it's going to be a while before I'm used to not seeing his little face peeking through the french windows - but we'll get there.
In the meantime, I have a special request. Please continue to post lots of puddy tat photos & stories on here - virtual purrs and strokes are good for cheering the soul. I have already warned my neighbour that I shall be semi-kidnapping her very comical 1 year old kitten / young cat. She seemed quite happy with that idea yesterday - he has lost a live mouse in her bungalow - seen late last night scurrying across the floor to behind the heavy old TV console. Think we've all been there....
M-U - I have both the purple and white Splendide thalictrums - lovely plants - very airy, fairy floating above other stuff. Looks good with Ammi and against dark green foliage. They've only been in for a couple of years and, so far, they haven't self seeded in the same way the spring flowering purple one does. That's a shame but might be because that area was very heavily mulched in the last 2 winters. Might try gathering & sowing seed this year.
LB & Pauline - Deliveries / white goods etc - ggrr Hope things get sorted soon for both of you.
Forgotten everything else except M-U bought gin - I shall be joining you later, my dear
