Dd ((hugs))  It'll be fine   I'm sure they don't expect perfection (even if you do) the first time - how would they see all the improvements in the following years?

Is it nesting on your house?  I used to love watching the martins build their mud nests on the farmhouse wall by my bedroom window when I was a child

Hello Dd

Think we need a bit more information about your garden Teddybearrowley - whereabouts are you and what's the soil like?

What sort of trees, how big and where?


Sick bay tree

I'm pretty sure it'll recover ok.  Don't give it any more food for the time being, just wait for it to drop any dead leaves and grow some more.  I wouldn't remove them as they'll give a bit of protection to the new buds while they're forming just in case we get another icy blast

Any idea what this is....

That's what I was thinking of - I'm pretty sure you got one last year from somewhere Panda

Panda, I have a vague (very vague) memory of you getting one of those big (huge) yellow daisy-type thingies last year - can't remember what they're called - where's Nut?

Oh Liri - your holiday looks wonderful - just what we would love - except for the mozzies - I always get bitten and react badly with swelling and pus-filled blisters

Well, that's the parquet in the hallway and the open plan sitting room and dining room area all vacuumed, washed, waxed and buffed until it's gleaming and a big  ((hug)) for OH  who helped a lot.   Can't do it on my own as the sofa and dining furniture etc all have to be moved, and you can't drag them across parquet 'cos it marks, so they have to be lifted. It does look lovely now it's done 

While we were doing the floor the robin was getting fed up with waiting for mealworms so he actually came and sat on the lip of the dining room doorway! He's very busy with at least three fledglings in our garden
