Unusual behaviour of Magpies

Edd - I remember reading that too - sort of starter nests which will only be finished when the female makes her choice and the finish the nest together.

Inspiration needed.

 Would one of these be useful?

Hosta - Mickfield Hostas is on the road between here and Wonky's place - when you bring your OH up here to Norfolk to visit the Old Vicarage at East Ruston, in order to get home you have to travel past Bressingham Gardens, Mickfield Hostas and Wonky's Award Winning Garden on your way to Beth Chatto's place. 

Don't worry - he won't notice he's doing nothing but visit gardens

Oh dear! Well, at least they're getting a chance - even if they don't flower this year they may next ...... or perhaps the year after

Oh dear, so he hasn't even been good accidentally - what a nuisance.

Glad you understand about hedgehogs - they need all the help they can get

Our last garden was in a city centre row of small Victorian terraces - and we had a hedgehog visiting - they get everywhere, given the opportunity

Cherry Tree

My sympathy - I bet it's a  gorgeous tree

but a dead plant is a new planting opportunity


And if you can locate a local woodturner (there are clubs in most areas according to Google), why not save a piece of the trunk and commission him/her to make you a bowl out of cherry wood - a lovely reminder of you lovely cherry tree  

Lovely day

How lovely to hear that Cornelly - hopefully my elderly aunt on The Gower will have been able to wander around her garden and feed her chickens in the sunshine.

Too cold here in East Anglia to play in the garden today... or am I turning into a wimp

Sounds as if your neighbour is a total PITA and you have my sympathy. 

Others have given you very good advice - however can I point out that the horrid neighbour seems to have inadvertently done 'a good thing' - that gap under the fence is just right to allow hedgehogs to roam from garden to garden - one of the reasons hedgehogs are an endangered species is that gardens are so very well fenced nowadays that they cannot access the area they need in order to get enough feed and meet up with other hedgehogs in order to do what comes naturally
