Morning Clari

Supper was quite restrained for me, cheese-wise - some anti-pasti of salami, fennel, chicory and mozarella with a few olives, followed by a small helping of tagliatelli with tomato and red pepper pesto and a light grating of pecorino and a small glass of Sauv. blanc.    It was very good

Morning Dove.  I've me Chris Packham a couple of times and I'm sure he would do a great breakfast,  or maybe it was supper, either way what was he doing round you house.

I was round his house - great kitchen - lots of natural wood - and it was definitely supper, Ma kept phoning telling me it was time to come home!!!

We seemed to be planning to go out on a reptile hunt

It's my birthday

Lawn Advice Appreciated

I agree with Bluebaron   get an old fashioned birch besom, or a newer plastic lawn rake, and sweep or rake them on a dry day.  They'll break up and disappear. 

Do keep off the lawn when it's wet or covered with frost/snow.

Catkin identity please

Trees For Containers

Hi Kukie

What size containers do you have or are you thinking of getting? 

Do you want a tree that will give you some shade, or would you prefer something more columnar in habit?

Or have you thought about a couple of fruit trees?
