In Memory of Pitto and Toffee — Raising Awareness of Strokes and Gastric Infections in Budgies

Pitto passed away from a stroke on the morning of the 18th of November 2017. He was definitely the cheekiest bird I ever had.

This was the plant that I found a thrip on and chucked outside. Since it seemed to be surviving okay, I planted it in the border and did manage to get a few leaves out of it before it started bolting.
