We're always here for you Lyn. Another bright,sunny day here, a bit of local news, a badly burned body with one foot missing has been found on a Brighton golf course. A local man has just been sentenced to 12 years for holding his 3 year old daughters hand under a scalding hot tap as a form of punishment, she will have to undergo skin grafts. And on a lighter note, some p**t who got caught on a speed camera said it must have been a low flying aircraft-- he was fined £300 , 10 points and £3,000 costs.
Good morning John and everyone It's a bit overcast here in Brum. John, I found the plant that you were asking about the other day. At the Garden Show in Kings Heath. If you google AEONIUM SCHWARZKOPF it's from the family CRASSULACEA (Stonecrops). It was a beautiful plant about Two feet high. SB
