I sometimes see the odd adder on the Towans leading to the beach.  Not my favourite creature at all    Did get very close to one....3' away....trying to test, by banging my foot on the ground, if they do react to vibration and move away.  Scarily, they keep still and begin their aggressive hiss when almost upon them.  So....you could easily step on them.       Take their picture ?  Hmmmm!

Reading the posts today made made me think we should name and shame those companies that shortchange us.  If its true we can do this.  

On the garden front I have had poor service from T & M, Gardening Express and one or two advertisers.  However, I have had either money refunded or satisfactory replacements, albeit after repeated complaints.

Peaceful, lovely area dove.  Lovely pictures.  If I venture onto the beach tomorrow with my dog and it's as sunny as forecast, I will try to take some pics.

See Stacey, even your sweet peas are trying to make you smile  Enjoy your Chinese 

I was so concerned about the foodbank today........not being able to hand out fresh food, meaning those cream buns,of course, meant none for me.    Silly me.  No need to worry like that  Cos someone brought some donuts in   It's the big things in life like this that mean so much..........

Been lovely day......lots of sun and (relatively) warm.  ......

Stacey, it's a teaser about echinaceas and mulching.  Maybe a light one with a view to frost protection but I don't think I would mulch really.  A covering with a sheet of suspended glass and fleece underneath if it's a tender variety.  If its a wet winter any mulch tends to make it worse.

You got to let us know ASAP,today. ,think we are all wishing you well

Good gardening weather but foodbank later and chores this morning
