    Neighbour's paving will all have to come up and there are massive cavities in the ground underneath. The rabbits seem to have dug out a city under there. The ground is now unsafe and will have to be filled - possibly with cement :yikes:

    I've never heard of a rabbit sinkhole before :roflol:

          Probably so. It can spread and looks nice in rockeries or tumbling over walls.
          I've got one which is slowly doing that.

            It will get as big as its companion over the course of the year.
            The one on the left just keeps growing and growing!

                Thank you Woo,
                feel fine today....
                Jenny
                Has Covid jab number 2 yesterday....
                apparently, it takes a week to bed in.
                Felt weary 2 hours after the jab and slept a lot but feel fine today....

                Had our little cards laminated to keep them strong. May come in handy later this year.
                Our local ARTS and Crafts shop did it for 40p each...

                      Thank you @CanadianLori , they are new to me and are said to naturalise easily so after the flowers fade I shall plant them in the ground where I hope they will form nice clumps in time to come.
