And take cuttings every year as a insurance.  I find that heeled cuttings in a gritty compost strike well.

mouse traps for me

I know you've lost weight, but it'd still have to be a pretty big trap for you

Amazing Encounter

Posted: 13/03/2016 at 09:09

Some years ago we were staying with friends near Rye - they took us out into a very rural area where there was a high bank - we sat by the hedge while they laid some peanuts around then we sat very still with the wind blowing away from us while the sun went down.

We spent an hour or so watching a family of 9 badgers, big ones, small ones and teenagers, pootling around eating peanuts and slugs just a few feet from us, then they went off into the marshes to find more food.

My first live badgers

As a child growing up in a very rural part of East Anglia I'd never seen a badger, not even a dead one - nowadays I often see them dead on the side of the road - East Anglia must be teeming with them now.

Morning Flumpy   milk and sugar on the table

I put some ground feed out on a log for the birds - there are two male blackbirds desperate to get the food and trying very hard to pretend the other isn't there.  It's so funny to watch them   One is nesting in the garden over the fence and I think the other has come from the conifers in the garden opposite our front garden.
