    Deffo not a bargain but I'm sure someone must've understood what I was trying to do ;)
    Tried and tested method on various threads - not always successful :D

    A matter of Evolution - takes a bit of time.  My mouth is firmly zipped - hopefully :p  Hope that's the right emoji

    I really just want pictures of people's bargains and rescue success stories along with the cost. As I'm sure Deltaflyer intended!

    I can't find the zippy moth pic @philippa smith2 . I think it was on the old emojis, so I could always look for them and save them.

    I'm too lazy though.... ;)

    🤐 this one?

    OH went to Lidl’s and came back with this 

    He says it was a bargain £2:49 ... he did remember to get the soy sauce 😊

    That's the one @Dovefromabove  :)
    I don't think soy sauce will cover the spikes though. Bit jaggy still...

    My best bargain was a Magnolia stellata - some 4 years ago from a local Garden Centre.  It was pretty sad looking but had potential. Can't recall the price but maybe £3 or 4 .  With a bit of careful pruning and re potting, it flowered the following Spring.  More TLC and it was a lovely specimen by the time I gave it to a neighbour last year.

    folk order delivery take aways via an app from a fast food place on the same road where they live.
    Some call it progress, I call it lazy gullible consumerism.
    Why are folk so stupid they jump on every band wagon which rolls along?
    I mean if I have to walk ten minutes home in the cold and rain my food isn't exactly going to be enjoyable when I get in is it? And I'd rather not reheat food I've JUST bought cause that overcooks it a lot of the time.

    I have had some really good ("search and rescue") bargains in our local Strikes GCs
    What I cannot stand is those wretched dyed heathers. they bring out this time of year.  
    An abomination . 
    What do others think? Dyed any  plants come to that. 


    I just don't get why?? Doesn't it all wash off?
