No frost here last night, but it's due.
I hope Geoff got on well with his prospective house-buyers yesterday (I didn't notice any feedback from him - good or otherwise).
On the grubbing up hedgerows controversy, I'm very pro-wildlife, and have strong views on the subject.
But can I simply quote from Jesus: Physician heal thyself. A lot of people who want to put the world right, are very often themselves guilty of the things they protest about.
Many urban gardeners who protest about farmers grubbing up hedgerows, have tidy gardens. They leave little space for wildlife. At least a farmer has a good reason - he's trying to grow food. But an urban gardener with a shaved lawn and tidy border has absolutely no excuse.
It's very difficult to change the minds of other people, but gardeners can always change themselves and their practices, if they want to.
End of sermon (from Jesus).
Gardening telly alert - Diarmuid Gavin is on TV tonight. Sources tell me that he won't have many clothes on. I did catch a bit of this program last Saturday. (A close-up of Jenny Faulkner's backside as she climber a ladder). I guess some ladies might enjoy tonight's show.
