Morning Stacey and Lily 

No need to worry about salt mine Lily - they'll all just be jealous as heck!!! 

Blackberries

I agree with Artjak - although some wild blackberries are delicious, they are variable.  Better to get a named variety with a reputation for good flavour.

Morning KEF 

Once I'm awake I'm wide awake - can't stay in bed - have to come down and have my coffee - but then I can either get ready and go out, or sit here and noodle on the forum until OH is awake 

Potatoes decimated!

I'm afraid that both of them like to eat solanacae so potatoes are vulnerable.

Have a good day Chicky

Lizzie, have a lovely day with Rose  

I leave my agapanthus  Sky Ricket outside in a pot over winter - I wrap the pot in bubblewrap and put it in the most sheltered corner of the terrace next to the fig.  It is then surrounded by other pots of bulbs (tulips, crocus etc) and sits the winter out.  It's been there for 3 winters so far, although I'll admit that the last one wasn't much of a test.  It's just coming into bloom now

Blackbirds in the mower shed

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 22:27

  Is that a second or third brood Nut?  

We've got two families of blackbird fledglings arguing about whose garden this is?  

I'm disputing rights to the raspberries with them 

I heard a songthrush singing from a tree near our garden the other night - so thrilled 

The last time I saw one was at my mother in law's place - not far from Nut 

Plant I.D. please
