Foxes & cabbages?!

Sounds like young foxes having fun and treating your garden as an adventure playground - teenagers eh 

I've not used one myself, but what about trying a water scarecrow? 

Anyone know if this is bee,wasp or honeybee?

Yes, one of the many types of hoverfly - great to have in the garden, they eat aphids and pollinate our flowers and do many other useful things.  They are flies and have no sting. 

what dunnit?

I look at the well manicured hands on some of the telly  gardening presenters, and think..

They've not seen much action in the garden. No badges of honour. Or maybe they all have nettle free brambles free and rose free gardens. Hmmm.

I figure so long as my tetanus jab is up to date, I'll be ok. 

See original post

 Nah, they're so busy being on tv/writing articles/giving talks that the Undergardeners are the ones with the badges of honour 

Hope it's better soon Nut - I'd best pack some Aloe Vera gel on Thursday just in case ...

Yes Fairy I saw them all in the royal box. Love Martina! and I used to love watching Agassi, the way he moved around the court so quickly but was always perfectly balanced!  Fantastic!

Fairy - Wonky hasn't been interested in tennis since Goran Ivanisevic retired 

Right, two loads of washing on the line and the machine is now doing a 'service' wash to give it a good clean out.  

A big pot of ratatouille has been made - that'll do nicely with some baked chicken legs for supper and there'll be lots left over for later in the week.

Time for the sofa ..............
