That's a Red Soldier Beetle    Beautiful things.


You'll find the longer grass is very popular with your frogs ....... ours spend most of the summer in the long grass, just visiting the pond from time to time for a sunbathe.    If you do decide to cut  it from time to time do brush through it just before mowing to alert the frogs and chase them to safety ... otherwise the results can be bloody carnage

There seems to be a lot of wums on the forum recently, or is that my imagination?  


Bless 'em, they seem to believe they're camouflaged

When I was a respectable married person in her early 30s, my husb was a school governor.  A new teacher had been appointed and a drinks evening was held to introduce him to a few people in the village.  I welcomed the young man in his mid 20s who had moved from South Wales to a small village in rural Suffolk and said that if there was anything he needed he only had to ask my husband or me.  


Just a couple of days later I saw him drive into our yard and take a laundry basket out of his car and walk over and knock on the door ............ he explained that he had washed and dried his shirts but  he didn't know how to iron them ... his Mam had always done that ... and I had offered to help hadn't I?  


He really expected me to do his ironing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I told him I would iron one shirt and he would watch.  He would then iron one shirt and I would watch.


He would then go back to his cottage and do his own ironing.  I knew there was an iron and ironing board in the cottage because I knew the owners well and we'd gone through the cottage together.


He was absolutely gobsmacked ......... but he did as he was told
