Not a polydactyl perhaps, Mistress Rose? I had friends who had a tabby cat with 6 toes and huge feet!!

Garden plant names keep changing, even quite ordinary ones. My mother was furious when they changed Montbretia to Crocosmia.
Thank you, Buzzy, for the alternative names for Herb Bennett - much nicer ...

Every time I log in I get asked for my password, even though I tick "remember me".
One of these days I'm going to lose the sticky with my password on it and have to start the whole rigmarole again.

They've got here! Or at least made a pit stop at 9 pm last night! A pair!
But I haven't seen them so far today.

Opened the door to let the dog out at 7 30 am and a pair of siskins were as surprised as I was! They were aiming for the peanuts. I think they are only the third pair I've seen here in 10 years! Are t ...

Still no swallows, chiffchaffs or redstarts - but pairs of kites, buzzards and ravens bombing round every morning. Next door (1/4 mile away,) have 2 swallows. I still live in hopes!

I've seen 2 swallows on a friend's farm, much nearer sea level, but nothing here yet, definitely late. And has anybody heard a chiffchaff - or is my deafness for real?
