Have a good time at the Christening Gregotyn.

Our old lady lived in Lahore for many years and was the principal of a ladies college. They took girls from all religions, and some young boys too. Sa ...

They are rather pretty aren't they. Amethyst deceiver are pretty too, and we get some pink ones who's name escapes me, but again, don't think they have an English name, so think the second half is ros ...

I don't think combines would have caught on in the UK very fast needing 9 horses to pull them Gregotyn. Most fields pre-1950s wouldn't have been big enough to cater for that many horses at once, and I ...

I suspect that some fungi are uncommon for that reason. One of our volunteers found a quite rare fungus in our woods, but as it was a tiny one I suspect it is only rare because nobody notices it.

That looks amazing Jam Lady. As you say, the skyscrapers reflected in the pool look lovely. By the look of some of the mansions they were built in the high Gothic era, so perhaps by the 1920s they wer ...

I looked it up, but there only seems to be scientific data about it, nothing really interesting as far as the layman is concerned. It does have some common names, but they are in German and Swedish or ...

That is all very interesting Gregotyn. What lovely people. Sounds as if you had great fun on the farm, and may even have been a bit of help too. Have fun with your tree stumps.

Thanks for that lin ...

We do have rather a lot of stuff, but it is things that I inherited, things that we have used in the past and don't now and that sort of thing. Like everyone, I have made some purchases that proved to ...

Our food bank has disposable nappies as those are the ones usually used these days Gregotyn. I don't think anyone uses the old square terry ones these days, although I agree they are better in many wa ...

I assume that is a women's refuge Jam Lady. Nice ideas for donations. We can't give out medications at the Food Bank, but all the other stuff apart from tokens would be very well received by us too. T ...

I saw a heron yesterday. Nothing odd about that, except it landed on a roof in an area where there might be the odd fish pond, although not in those bungalows as too small gardens, but no other water. ...

I didn't understand the stump was under a building wall. That is going to cause trouble as it rots no doubt, but as you say, not your problem. Sounds as if you are making the most of the birthday cele ...

Kingfishers are beautiful, and something, not living near water that we rarely see. It was a real treat when we went narrow boating to be accompanied along by one. They seem to have a territory and wh ...
