    You can hear it from the Cactus house but not much further. It did upset a pheasant that couldn't work out what the noise was :D[/QUOTE]
    Thank you.
    Adore the variegated I had one like that ..I’m afraid a couple snowy winters did it in…
    They are quite showy in any garden. Hard to find hardy types.

    Cor, it's beautiful! They wouldn't survive winter outside here, and I dislike out-in-plants no matter how gorgeous they are, so no variegated Euphorbia for me. I'm not even certain they sell them in the nurseries around here.

    I've got a short video of the pheasant but the microphone hasn't picked the frogs up so you can't see what he's cross about :rolleyes:

    You'll have to paint stripes on the hardy one Droopy :)

    Here's a bonsai yucca that's 4 years old now. I keep it in a small pot and never feed it :D

    Oh, and I just heard that I'm going to be a Grandad in September :)
