That means they're ripening - then they'll begin to split open - that's when the seeds are ripe and ready to be sown so you can have more ..........

Mixed herbs picked and displayed in jam jar and named...

red spuds lifted... need 3 same size and clean. Have 2 really goodly sized ones only, dam... never mind. Do I go with these or three smaller but same size

Woody, can you have two entries in the one class?  If not, in my experience of judges I'd go for matching sizes. 

Archie - grand daughter and spuds both gorgeous

We've had a noticeable increase in butterflies in this garden this week -  red admirals, peacocks, common blue and large and small whites.  

Blackbirds in the mower shed

They look like two different birds to me - the first one has a pale supercillium (eye streak) and could be a chiffchaff - afraid the picture's not very clear - they won't stand still for photos will they? 

Second one could be a young blackbird - it would help to see it sideways on, but I don't suppose he'll pose for the camera either - but it does look a bit on the small side for a blackbird - the fledglings are roughly the same size as the adults by the time they're hopping about the garden.
