Thanks Runny.  It all makes sense to me now.  As you say, the nibbles are at risk.  I think I should change the locks just to be on the safe side.  But I knows y'know.

Oh come on......

Ooooooo......problem is Roger NOBODY knows.  Mankind cannot change this anyway but we can do something about cancer, about ISIS (a definite killing machine), about the thousands of migrants dying and..........

for every person believing in climate change there is another not believing it.  honestly, what on earth will anybody do about it?  Give up our cars?  What?   Its distracting us from real issues that we can deal with.

Ooooooo, you will upset some now Fairy........ My kind of girl 

lavendar is lovely as a path edge though.  I have a lavendar hedge, now flowering, that's many years old but still looking good.  However the garden there will be revamped and the lavendar removed.  plan to put in another lavendar hedge though to incorporate some meandering and to curve into the greenhouse.  Nothing like purple lavendar in full bloom..and scent.. In summer.  I does though have its issues if conditions aren't perfect

I agree with you fidget.  Brambles are the most dangerous plants....long bramches of vicious thorns have torn my face and hands and my clothing.  

The big outdoors is a potemtially dangerous place...why did fhe creator make if so? (Hmmmm! A new (contentious) thread I think could be made here )
