Really nice shots of bluebells and others....Dove, you must feel privileged to live within reach of such lovely countryside.

Are we so H&S mad that we cant make our own judgements, he did'nt tell people to do it that way, its just his way.


Not a H&S issue, just common sense....or lack of it in this particular instance.

Not a fan of MD (take that as read) some of his antics never cease to amaze me.

Last Friday (25/04/14) ever trying to be Mr Macho Man, he demonstrates how he takes out a seed drill with the side of his hand.

The observant among you will have noticed a large nail protruding from the wooden plank he was using to stand on & as a straight edge......A&E beckons, me thinks.

Please! Do use *a hand held tool, as we mere mortals do.

*I find an onion hoe perfect for the job.

Love those shots, Forester......captures beautifully, what must have been a very pleasant walk. 

Garden hose

With plumbing systems it is important to prevent contamination of the water for obvious reasons. Dirty water getting back into the system poses a health risk and steps must be taken to prevent this happening. Backflow (as it is called) is when water which could be contaminated is drawn back into the plumbing system.

Regulations require that in order to prevent contamination of domestic water systems, hose taps must be fitted with non-return valves to prevent contamination to domestic supplies through back-flow.

A scenario that is quite feasible is when filling a garden pool. When the pool is full and the still submerged hose is turned-off, contaminated water can easily be siphoned back into the domestic supply.

Anyone have a garden blackbird?
