Lazy morning planned

Then hopping in a car to take an extremely anxious Chicklet back to Nottingham.  Her exams start tomorrow, and she is feeling .  Iwill stay overnight and then head straight to work tomorrow morning - its an hour closer than home.  Have lots of podcasts to keep me entertained on the journey.

See you Tuesday

Snowdrop /squirrel food ?

Posted: 14/01/2017 at 10:11

Went for a talk by our local snowdrop expert this week.

He has had squirrels and mice uproot his bulbs before (didn't say whether they had been eaten or not).  But his no. 1 pest is slugs/snails who can graze off new growth as it emerges from the soil, and will later climb stems to devour the flowers (he had an amazing pic of a little snail doing just that).  And wood pigeons peck off the flowers and leave them on the ground.  Seems its a minefield out there

 Two great gardens - and some serious graft - well done pokhim and antzero.  The LG garden was my absolute favourite at Chelsea this year (I bored everyone with the pics ). I love, love, loved that planting   So I was very excited that someone had used it as their inspiration.

Like others have said, it willl be great to see how your gardens evolve with time - sharing pics would be brlliant.

One of the best bits about last night's programme was seeing the way you all got bitten by the gardening bug .....its a wonderful thing .....welcome to our club👏🏻👏🏻🌸🌺🌷🍁🌿👏🏻👏🏻

Big garden bird watch 2017

Posted: 14/01/2017 at 09:17

We get jays here and, like Liri, have only ever seen them feed from the ground.  The magpies, however, will give anything a go - the bird table, the feeders, the fat balls.  Our feeders are on shepherd crook type affairs and you can see them flexing under their weight.

Flood danger was mostly coastal this time Pat - and seems to have thankfully passed without incident

Think we're heading out for a walk today too  Our garden is still covered in snow from Thursday night, so will wrap up warm ⛄️⛄️⛄️

Have a great weekend - hope the lurgies and colds are now on their way.
