Wildlife in enclosed rear garden

Posted: 27/01/2016 at 22:46

Don't think it's big enough for a badger. My daughter had one digging under her fence. It killed her son's pet rabbit. It destroyed a strong outdoor rabbit run and left footprints. Then they saw it from the window early one morning. The hole was about 30cm wide.

Council orders pensioner to cut back "dangerous" yew hedge "because of health a

Posted: 27/01/2016 at 22:35

But the hedge was planted in 1880 and is beautifully trimmed. From the look of the photos there is enough room for two people to pass on the pavement, it certainly isn't half the width of the pavement.

2 minutes later - just looked at the hedge on Google maps, there is one corner that could be dangerous where the hedge overhangs the pavement. I think that corner should be cut back hard and the rest of the hedge is fine. As usual, journalism is exaggerating.

I'm still full from Chinese lunch.

My son's birthday tomorrow - is that what you're referring to, Wonky?

Dover sole! Yum! Very expensive here.

OH has gone to choir practice, the big choir an hour's drive away. But he loves the major works they sing. It's the choir he sang with in New York in June. I ought to clean the bathroom but don't feel like it.

HELLO FORKERS!

DD, please relax and try to do less, your body needs time to recover from illness.

We went to the bank for OH's appointment only to find it was at a different branch because of renovations, so we were 25 mins late. Then we went shopping, weekly groceries, but Hyper U not my usual Leclerc, so couldn't find anything. Then we went to a Wok place for lunch, but not the usual!

Morning all, grey and damp outside.

Punkdoc's holiday sounds lovely. Perhaps Wonky should borrow Hosta's OH to shout at the neighbours.

Can't chat, OH has an appointment with the bank, I need to translate for him.

Hello Chicky and Wonky. Glad Chicklets exams went OK.

OH has just got back from choir practice.

OH has gone to choir practice. Thought I'd pop in for a chat, there's no one here.

Shall go and make another cushion instead.

Clematis offer

Posted: 26/01/2016 at 18:55

If they are that tiny then I think I would pot them on to a deeper pot until grown some more.

Clematis can take a while to get going, but can't tell you how long. I bought one in a small pot, had 2 flowers the first year, then 6 or 7, then lots.
