I stand corrected however one has to wonder what is happening here? Is this is a case of a 'damsel in distress'
or there ain't no damsel in dis dress:)

This is the sideway of my house, busy evening the other day, now found what is digging little holes in the lawn, probably looking for leather jacket grubs.

We have a plant.
Mrs Ponti bought it three or four years ago.
In autumn she cuts it down to ground level.
Last year it flowered,this year it flowered.
So far so good.She cannot remember what it is.The problem is what is it.
She has been looking though her plant books and seed catalogues.No joy there.

We have a family of five young starlings bathing in the water bath every day, and squabbling over the fat balls, it is a full-time job refilling the bath every day sometimes twice a day.
