Dove, when young, chysauster was a place to go in the dark, or full moon or when very foggy. I actually saw piskies ...they were trying to ,get my lager I'm sure of that.....chasing rabbits. And they kept tripping me up as well.  Maybe they were the wild haggi and not rabbits.

This has been such an education for me today.

Well I am but a simple Cornishman. 

Always ready to learn something......Begonias I grow are from corms .....more rounded, sponge like opposed to those that do form more usual roots.  

True, some begonias are called "tuberous" and these do form roots or tubers not something I grow too much of.

Come on you begonia experts .......some education here for us perhaps

Ooo, thanks Dove.     Seeing a bunch of folk today who are quite academic so you can be sure I will inform them of the wild haggis here in Cornwall. I needed to find something to impress them and I think this is just the ticket.  

Best way to i.d this plant?

Welcome to the forum Luke.

Well, well you learn something new every day.  Never knew haggis were actually animals and now I've seen just what they look like I can boast to all amd sundry.  Think I will impress everyone today and say those clever people on the forum have educated me.  

Wet, wet and more wet.  Very mild, almost warm, but it would be nice to have a dry period of cold sunny winter days

Hmmmmm....but pyracantha is so VICIOUS.  Those sharp long barbs.  Got rid of mine.  One of those near your eyes...a child's bad news.  You can have prickly but pyracantha is dangerous
