Massive grass snake

Think the younger ones eat slugs, but the bigger the snake, the bigger the prey - big ones will go for frogs, small mammals and birds - keep an eye on those baby robins!!!

I think you're going to get ours tomorrow Archie, and we're going to get your rain - but I hope not 'cos son is helping out here 

He'll have been erecting teepees today and possibly doing some sound engineer stuff over the weekend - hope the weather stays good for him - he deserves some fun

Lucky you Artjak  Very Lucky you  

I know grass snakes have been seen around here but we've not seen one in our garden - yet.    

When I had the smallholding we had grass snakes in the meadows and swimming in the ponds catching Gt Crested Newts.

Hi Mike   could you post us some photographs of the damage please.  To post a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions.  Sadly it doesn't work on phones - yet!

 Clari ((hugs))  yet another example of the Peter Principle in operation!   But as you say, another week with someone owing you a salary isn't all bad.  The other bosses aren't planning a Buy Out and not telling him, are they?

Wisteria planting.

Could you make an arbour seat against the fence and train the wisteria over it?  Then when the fence needs replacing you can work around it.
