Current timings for Flying Scot here Topbird http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/the_flying_scotsman_is_coming_to_norwich_1_4433534

The deer was seen crossing the ringroad !  Not sure if it used the Pelican Crossing, but my guess is that it didn't.  There's some biggish gardens around there, despite the busy roads - hopefully he and his pals have found a secluded spot.

Is this a purple leaved elder ?

Yes, I agree with Pansyface

More haste less speed .........  I'd got an early start today and should have been cooking in the kitchen by now, but as I showered I realised that the shower head needed a good de-coke, so after breakfast I gave it a good seeing to ............... soaked in descale stuff and then a poke, but I poked too hard and totally bu$$ered it up, so I've just had to dash to Homebase for a new shower head.

On the way back I popped into the farm shop - OH was in a state of mild astonishment   just a few moments before I arrived a muntjac deer had dashed across the car park and towards the glass doors of the shop - they work on a sensor so they started to open so he didn't really collide badly with them thankfully, and he dashed off from whence he'd come .......

Woah!  Slow down!  Don't panic 

Not every insect is a baddie ... most plants are host to all sorts of bugs, the majority of them are beneficial.

I can't enlarge your photos enough to see what they are but hopefully someone will identify them

Hosta ((hugs)) you'll get there

I've just read that the Flying Scotsman is visiting Norwich in May - it'll go on the track across the marshes just over the hill - I shall walk across the marshes and watch it pass - it'll be a magnificent sight.

What's the difference between....

I would use perlite in potting compost to improve drainage.

I would use vermiculate on top of the compost after sowing seeds in seedtrays for seeds that need light to germinate, as it allows light through but stops the seeds from drying out.

I tend not to buy either, and use horticultural grit for both purposes as I don't have room to store everything in my little shed.
