Default Daffodils

Picked my first three daffodils today. They were a lovely surprise. Also, I
still have some nasturtiums in flower, never had that before at Christmas
time

I am in Plymouth but they survived ground frosts last week and now it's
almost tropical!

A short length of Bidens ferrulifoliae, growing in a windy box
outside the bathroom window, has been accidentally trapped the last
time someone closed said window, and is thriving in the warmth and
humidity engendered by two daughters, who spend at least half their
day in there doing god knows what. It produced buds over the weekend
and is now in flower. :~)

In the windy box outside my study window, Nemesia 'Confetti'
is *still* flowering, and has been, non-stop, since March 2000.

Did a Google Groups search using "East Yorkshire," and turned up your
message. This is off-topic.

I live in Ellisville, Miss., USA. Found an odd charge on my bank
statement from July 1st this year:

07/01 185.94 POS DEBIT WP-WORLDWIDE POS EAST YORKSHIRE
GB

That's 121.47 British pounds, for that date's exchange rate. (POS =
Point-of-Sale, I think.)

I've never been to the UK, and never bought anything from there.

You're in East Yorkshire - any idea who is or what is "WP-Worldwide" ?

"World Pay" I think - a payment/collection/transfer facility via the
internet.

He seems to have picked up my posting to URG and taken the newsgroup as my e
mail address.

I know what they are doing, Cormaic. They are making up for a goodish
competition to all the other lovely flowers around you! I can only offer
you the sparkling ice-flowers on my new glazed patio - minus 18 degrees
outside and atleast 30 cm of snow.
Happy new year - every day a new gift.
