frog mortality

Sad to hear about the frogs but maybe your report will help in the understanding of the disease. Sorry also to hear that you're under the weather in more ways than one.
I hope you're feeling better soon. It probably won't help to here that it's nearly 20C in the shade in sunny Norfolk ... Sorry

I get blobs like that in the birdbath sometimes. Never sure what they are but they get tipped out when I refresh the water. All sorts of birds regurgitate pellets, not just birds of prey. Could these be pellets from garden birds?

you made the papers...

I'm seriously considering sandals Lyn!
BL think the problem with the pub is that there's more profit in the food side so that is encroaching on the drinking side. The locals are feeling unloved and unwanted but the thing is it's the locals that make that place more than simply it's architecture and draw the dining customers in. It's a fine line to tread for new tenants ... :-/

If he really wants one he'll have to get up early next Mayday

He's probably gone back to bed and is snoring sweetly - I'm sure he'd prefer sleep to a May Queen mantle

That sometimes happens to me - I've found that if I click on Submit reply, it tells me off for not having typed something, but it then gives me a reply box

I've been told that liming the soil can discourage it (but you'll never get rid of it) - but of course that then limits your use of the allotment for your veg.
