Got lots of this in the garden, it seems to be creeping about. Very low, ground cover, only a couple of inches high. And it feels furry, looks like it has tiny soft white hairs on it.

We just moved into this house in December so obviously don't know what's going to appear in the garden ! But I have noticed quite a few of these, can anyone tell me what it is ?

Bird feeders

Posted: 16/01/2014 at 17:02
After a month in the new house, the birds are finally starting to come into the garden. They're eating the fatballs but the seed feeders are untouched. And so far all I've seen are starlings. But it's a start

Feeding large birds

I'm looking for ideas on feeding large birds like crows and magpies. I have the usual feeders up for the small birds but I can't imagine them standing up to the weight of bigger ones! Ground feeders aren't an option as my boston will eat whatever is on it. Not sure if the poles that you stick in the ground and hang things off would be strong enough?

The house we've just moved into doesn't have many feathered visitors at the moment. I've only seen a magpie and a few crows. But the garden is bare, totally unloved with no bushes / plants etc for them to feed off. The food I've put out is untouched, the birds watch me putting it out but don't seem to trust me enough to come and eat it. Soon as the spring comes I'll start making it wildlife friendly. My last house ( 2 streets away ) had so many different birds every day, it cost a fortune feeding them ! Maybe I should have left them a map to the new place lol

The demise of the front garden.

Posted: 30/12/2013 at 14:16
My last house had a horrible front garden. The landlord had dug down several feet and used major chemicals, laid a membrane then filled it with stones. It wasn't for parking, he just didn't want to have to do any work on it. It was very satisfying when I noticed loads of poppies growing in between the stones !
The house we just moved into a couple of weeks ago has a very soggy, uneven, east facing front garden. A patchy bit of grass and standing water in pools. It's not going to beat me tho. The only thing apart from the grass is a clump of marigolds in the corner, got a shock when I saw them flowering in mid December. But ar least it means something will grow there.

Just moved - horrible garden

Apparently the whole street has soggy gardens, we get a lot of water coming from the fields above us. We're not at the bottom of a bank tho so I'm assuming that in normal weather ( well, you know what I mean !) the gardens should dry up a bit as the water drains further down. The neighbours also said they had holly bushes and a thriving veg plot.
