My husband planted a buckthorn here years ago. Blasted thing is popping up everywhere. Think he called it "Sea Buckthorn". Mind you, the birds love it for nesting in.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!

We have a constant battle against the stuff. The pheasants love the berries and end up pooping it everywhere so it springs up all over the place here too.

The berries are a fantastic source of vitamin C, though the taste won't appeal to everyone. They're very popular in Russia.

It's obviously written with comedy in mind and like all good comedy there's sadness there as well.

These aren't half as bad as the fellow doing them is making out. A good news story anyway.

I thought they were fantastic. I have seen worse being sold as serious art for a fortune

I loved them! He managed to get some essential "thing" out of the pets. Loved the Siamese cat! I'd pay for one! The white terrier with the crocodile toy is brilliant!
