Are we back on shoes for bras? Clarington???

It's not the weather for flip-flops - you'll have to wear whatever you've got available Clari

What part of the world are you in Antja?  If you're in the southern hemisphere and coming up to autumn I'd wait until spring before giving up hope

Fingers crossed. 

It's my birthday

Absolutely agree with Fidgetbones - it's what happens to grass in the winter.  Ignore it and in the spring when the temperatures rise it will start to grow, you can cut it then and it will look fresh and green.  Do nothing to it at the moment.

Good morning all

What a bu$$er Fidget! What can you do?   Will it do more damage if you keep driving it?  Can you borrow one?  And the weather's looking none too good over your way as well

Rats feeding on bird food! What to do?

Ive seen the odd rat in my garden, its inevitable really. I put traps and bait boxes out and after catching and killing a few I haven't seen anymore.

I did the same when we saw a rat in the garden three years ago.  The bait boxes did their job and we've not been troubled since, fingers crossed.

Anyone done any gardening today?

OH spotted Peabrain the Woodpigeon perched on the edge of the raised bed that has my cabbages in it - my gardening today consisted of putting scrunched up kitchen foil on the end of a piece of string dangling from a bamboo cane on each of the raised beds.  I just hope they don't alarm the bluetits who are spending a lot of time hanging around the nearby nest box.

Pauline ((hugs)) at least they're on the case - and do as the GP says - straight to A&E if it happens again, or you'll have us to deal with ((hugs))
