 Looks like Mus musculus to me. I'd rather have Apodemus sylvaticus or Dryomys nitedula around, personally.

..... or these little guys would be acceptable company, too.

 A grass verge near me.

OH WOW!  Love wild flowers, thats absolutely beautiful David, love the cornflowers.

20/07/2014 at 18:45

Thanks, Lily.....I do think it's a really positive move by the village council. It's just a wide grass verge that has been turned over to wild flowers.

20/07/2014 at 19:07

That is absolutely beautiful, it's what I would love to do on the grass verge at the front of my house but it hardly gets any sun.  I've got a few wild flower packets so just growing to sow them in Autumn and see what happens 

20/07/2014 at 19:19

Thanks, OL.....problem is, they need really impoverished soil to succeed, so, as a project  needs to be planned with care. 

Lily, I think this is a better shot of the cornflowers.

Well at the moment all that grows there is wild grass that OH trims with the strimmer, the soil isn't cared for at all. I was thinking if I cut the grass really short and make some holes with an aerator type thing then just scatter them??? Would that work? I was trying to think how they germinate in the wild and they don't get any TLC (I can see you laughing now David taking it's going to be impossible for me to grow something that doesn't need TLC )

I've just noticed you've changed your avatar to a Travis type character
20/07/2014 at 19:35

Not sure what a 'Travis type character' is....Brian is has been resting for months.  

20/07/2014 at 19:38
Brian?? Travis is a tractor off Bob The Builder, mine and the boys favourite children's programme when they were little

'Bob the builder'! Your talking to a 'Muffin the Mule' man here.

Anyway, I have heard of 'Brian the snail'.

PS. 'Magic Roundabout'?    My kid's era.
