Thank you to everyone for comments yesterday about the very shy cats. They came out of hiding during the night to eat but have spent the day hidden in their box/bed.

We've had a beautiful early spring day here with almost non stop sunshine.

So we have the money back for the 6 he bought, £15 profit and 4 more still to sell. We'll put an ad in the Suffolk Smallholders Newsletter and they will probably go quite quickly once the gardening season starts.
I got outside to clear a bit of overgrown old herb garden that had several woody lavender plants and a half dead rosemary with ivy and brambles creeping through. This bit of garden and the small overgrown patio beside it are going to go back to grass as they are beside the old garden potting shed which will come down when the new one is built- sometime.
