Pauline ((hugs)) at least they're on the case - and do as the GP says - straight to A&E if it happens again, or you'll have us to deal with ((hugs))

Thanks Dove,

7 hour flight to the Gambia does not fill me with joy I have to say, but Doc says it's ok to fly.

Maybe the warmth will help it to heal - I certainly hope so

Nope - didn't see them.

Ideas for my manky lawn and old car port

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 16:01

I'd pave or deck under the car port, and turn the car port into a pergola - you could have steps up to it - covered with clematis or vines planted at the bottom of the uprights and climbing up and over the beams it would look fabulous - you can put a nice garden table and chairs out there and eat there most summer evenngs. 

Make a bed around the base of the fence and plant some more climbers and perennials and as Edd says, work on the lawn.  A bit of scarifying and spiking and some Evergreen 80 type fertiliser in the spring (or even just seaweed powder if you're concerned about the dog going on there) will soon have that grass looking like a lawn

If they've been deleted presumably Daniel Haynes felt they were inappropriate in some way.  Did they contained information you need?

Pauline - good luck!  We'll be thinking of you ((hugs))  Let us know how you get on. 

Golfinches have landed!

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 13:42

Goldfinches are supposed to love Nyger seed, but whenever I've supplied it to them in the special feeders they've studiously ignored it and tucked into the sunflower hearts - they get through huge amounts of them  - both in this garden and in the gardens at my former place of work.  Eventually I stopped offering them Nyger seed as it just went mouldy in the feeders and I had to keep throwing it away.

I find that if they do drop any of the sunflower hearts the blackbirds hoover them up, and in the summer and autumn the hedgehogs do too.
