Clari - i think release - they eat aphids too, and i think the battle is lost anyway - it'll take more than a bit iof squishing to stop their advance

i thought i'd use this one for starters.  There is an RSPB one that is more extensive, but it costs £5 to download, so thought i'd see how i get on with these first few before i make the investment

Great carvings Bill

Back to the grindstone here - but this is the week when i might start making it home before dark.  

Found a birdsong tinternet site last night - might try and teach myself one song at a time - currently can only recognise great tit - which the tutorial tells me is the easiest one.  But once upon a time i couldn't name plants - so progress is possible

I agree with Nut ????- 6 could be another hosta

Oh my!  Lots to go at !!

plant 1 - don't know

plant 2 - some sort of pink/dianthus

plant 3 - pulmonaria/lungwort

plant 4 - euphorbia, but don't know which type

plant 5 - some sort of hosta

plant 6 - don't know

plant 7 - some sort of hydrangea

plant 8 - possibly a geum (if i am being optimistic) - but more likely a creeping buttercup - not sure anyone would welcome it as a donation, as its more like a curse

Hope this helps

MrsG - result Look forward to following your project. 

Nut - our Roe deer were locking horns on the lawn earlier this week - ?but i thought babies had been made by now?  Bambis will be born next month??

Fidget - fantastic frogs (or are they toads?) - such patience to get shots like that.
