Shooting

Hi

It just has to hang on into Feb 2 to be safe from shooters.

Notice that I said shooters and not sportsman.

Geranium?

Looks like your Geranium? is still in bloom too!

Go placidly...

Pelargonium/Geranium

Yes it is a Geranium in flower. It's on a south facing terrace and has a few blossoms still, but this is the Undercliff of the Isle of Wight, if only it would stop raining it would be quite pleasant.

looker

He is a bit of a looker people say there not very clever but I have six that hide and hang around in my garden when the shoot is out they always remind me of the old Giles carton's of the country set.
