I know Stacey! staying off those threads now, I don't like any thought of people wanting to harm animals Does Olivia have a curl in then middle of her forehead? What you said reminds me of what my mum used to say about me and I had a curl LOL!!

With 2 teenage (almost) boys I would gladly swap, if you live locally we could have a trial

Lily, it's only Fleetwood vs Scunthorpe and not very exciting but it has meant I could sit quite happily looking at roses

27/01/2014 at 20:59

Who had a little curl

Right in the middle of her forehead

And when she was good she was very very good

But when she was bad she was horrid!

Hello Forkers, Hello all

Been a busy weekend I went to the potato fair on Saturday and I got my potatoes - Arran victory - maincrop going into my raised bed, Sunrise - second early and Swift - first early both for 2 potato bag, there was also plants there so a nice peach tree followed me home and a few plants, done a small bit of seed swapping too - was a bit knackering day out but got doughnuts yum yum and flumps  

Then on sunday went volunteering to Sholing valley study centre for the conservation day - helped with litter picking around Millers pond and got soaked with heavey rain all the way round coat leaked only shower proof so wet jumper and very wet trousers and cold me. Some bird watching done then as well

Did my bird watch on Sunday while I was a bit wet but weather dryed up a bit, in back garden - few birds around but not as many

Today was dry and a bit sunny, I have seen so many wildlife in the garden first a squirrel eating off the bird feeder then while I was trying to dig out the pond hole more found a slowworm had to move it, so small little eyes was saying its so bright, I put it under some more dirt in a better place.

I went to get some more bags to put the soil in and a ground sheet took them back to the pond area which is at the bottom of the garden and a fox was stood there next to the pond hole, looked at me shocked thought no one was out there it went back around the pile of twigs and under the wire fence - we have a train line at the bottom of the garden but lower down so guess was going to find another garden to go into was a nice sized fox fluffy tail - this was nearly 12:00

Are foxes normally out in the day?

Back sore heat patch on now so much digging done ouch

Gg, did you do anything with the little treasure you found

27/01/2014 at 22:42

Gardengirl, our fox sometimes comes out in the day, but it is usually in summer when they have cubs to feed.

Stacey, I do know Dryopteris  copper fern....I do grow it.  Yes, nice new growth but less vigorous than some.

Hi everyone, just popping by to let you know I'm still alive and well. Nothing much happening for me garden-wise at the moment. GH tucked up, rarely checked on, a few of bulbs thinking about making an appearance, not sure what else is going on out there. Just need this cold spell they've promised us , then we can get on with spring !
Really hope none of you have suffered the floods too much but of course that's probably a bit nieve of me.(how on earth is that spelt????). Awful, awful pictures on the news.
hope you are all well and happy. Bye for now, catch up in the spring...(i know, i know - turned info a bit of a forum lightweight haven't i?). take care all. X
