Cats fouling our garden

Posted: 25/06/2014 at 13:57

Myth or not in the past 3 weeks the birds nesting in our front tree gave us a lot of pleasure and laughs while they were deciding whether or not to use the tree, they did and were great to watch,another 2 sparrows made there nest in our Fuchsias tree (Large) in the back part of the garden,they also became very friendly and were nice to have , last week one of the birds in the front was lying dead under the tree also an egg was a couple of feet away, this morning i had to clean a tiny birds body didnt even have any feathers yet of the bench seat near to the nest which is now wrecked and abandoned Kate was very upset as was I, now i know this is nature but if were counting Cats 2 Birds and family 0, It seems to me the only people who get to enjoy the cats dont seem to get there mess, its there neighbors who suffer,and this complaint has been going on since ever and ever , whose responsibility is it ,we all know the answer Sad  it happening to so many people.

Hi Chris 25,im not long out of hos,went in ,in a wheelchair had an op on mi spine  ( neck) and now on 2 crutches, sometimes one if im feeling ok, so i understand how difficult gardening is on wheels, and yet i also know how the gardening helps in trying to overcome the probs, even on wet days im in the greenhouse, and watching the cuttings come on is the best it all calms me down a bit and takes my mind of the other probs , so good luck Chris happy gardening to all Sunny erein Norfolk

Barbadensis Miller- Aloe Vera Medicinal Plant

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 17:36

Hi Chriss, many years ago a team of flat roof men were mending a friends roof, while we were having coffee the youngest lad spilled the tar pot over his arm, my friend doused the arm under the cold tap ,cut of a big  Alo leaf sliced it down the middle flatways  and wrapped it around the burn, the roof was finished,and the men were gone about a month  later she told me the lad had come back to thank her for her help,he said the doctor was amazed at the condition of the burn when he treated it and said he had seen Aloe used this way before, So there you go Alo Alo Alo.i think its time for me to get another one nice plants.
