I would stab it with a fork and scatter a mix of sand, compost, lawn fertiliser and grass seed and sweep into the holes. The lawn should be fed and weedkilled every spring. Weeds always come, they fly in the air (like dandelion seeds) or they are dropped by birds - just a fact of life. If there is a lot of moss you will need mosskiller too and then you will have to rake out the dead moss. Once you've done all that it will look worse to start with but then it will start to look a lot better.

Sorry, didn't give a solution - but I think it will be a temporary problem and they will move on. Just one of those things that sometimes happens, like swarms of Daddy long legs.

They look like whitefly, some sort of aphid anyway. I have a lime tree which seems to drop something every season of the year, including stickiness. Looks rather like a lime tree.

Looks like a very spindly snapdragon that could have done with being pinched out and planted in the garden. I grew snapdragons from seed last year, 2 different sorts, and quite a lot have survived the winter - it was mild though. I cut off the old growth last month and they have made new growth.

Mine is not nearly as flowery as usual and I'm in SW France, but the cherries and greengages were great. Also orchards near here looked a bit sparse too.

HELLO FORKERS!

Been to supermarket. Still raining.

Cider is fizzy so I suppose that's out too Clari. Gluten intolerance seems to be getting more and more common. I wonder why.

Going to lunch with friend tomorrow, doing pud, have lots of lemons. Lemon tart or lemon drizzle??

Looks a lovely place GG.
