Hi all!............ Dove, if there's any Guinness cake left, I'd love a slice please...    Virtual cake is wonderful for those on a diet.

What I've found is that they don't produce suckers until the tree gets too big for it's space and you start to prune it - it responds by throwing up suckers right, left and centre

The hedgehogs return.

No sign of Hefty and his friends yet, but I've put out his dish of fresh water and there's some food out waiting for him.
