Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Good morning all 

Terrible fire ... Hope everyone got out, but the news report doesn't sound great 

About half an hour I watched a muntjac doe walk down the rise and across towards the SSSI woodland across the way.  I've heard them in the area, but not seen them this close to the house before.

Very likely Watery ... But if people follow the advice above the ladybird larvae won't be there to munch on the aphids when they appear on the beans, will they?

its really not a good idea to go round killing things indiscriminately, especially when you have no idea what they are. 

Can anyone identify this please.

If your pic won't upload try reducing the size. It usually works. 

Privacy ideas

I would think about creating one or two secluded areas with pergolas, trellis and seating, and then if you want to break up other areas with beds of shrubs tall perennials and grasses at a later date then you can. 

Looking forward to seeing your photos.

Nope, not mustard ... mustard is a brassica and those aren't brassica leaves ... neither are the flowers right for a brassica.

I can tell you what it isn't, but not what it is

Good to see everyone .... hope you've all had a good day and that Joyce's OH will soon be more chipper.  

It's a lovely calm and sunny evening here in Norfolk ... hope everyone else has a lovely evening too.

Goodness Fidget ... how long have you had it?  The one I planted 30+ years ago is not as big as that!

Oh dear ... you now have a 'normal' hazel which will grow much too big to plant on your rockery.

Go on .... treat yourselves .... buy a new Corylus avellana contorta  .... you know you want to ...

Fantastic Steephill 

I used to see similar in the gardens where I used to work ........ the woodpeckers there were very fond of those flat rectangles of suet with mealworms that we hung up in wire cages.
