Yes , 'our' bluetits always do a bit of pecking around the entrance each year, even when they've used the box before. You know the house proud types Hosta, nothings ever perfect enough

Growing sweetcorn in container ???

I've found Sweetcorn 'Swift' to be very good - it's an early,  tender variety  developed especially for cooler, shorter seasons and is great for the UK climate.

Frank - when we moved to very rural Suffolk in the mid 50s, unlike many of the older houses in the village we had an indoor flush toilet.  However the very old farmer across the field hadn't got such new-fangled stuff, and he and his equally elderly wife still used the brick-built bucket lavvy in their back garden.

Their back garden adjoined our woodland where we used to play and quite often we children would sneak through the dry ditch that separated our farms and use their 'facilities' ... much more fun than our flush toilet as theirs was a 'two seater'

Wonky ((hugs))

At least you know the bosses will give you a brilliant reference and will take you back like a shot if they can sort the current problem out - meanwhile I know you're doing all that you can ((hugs)) xxx

Butterflies 2017

I've just seen my first butterfly of the year - I'm pretty sure it was a tortoiseshell, although it was above my head and it didn't stay still so I couldn't see the markings - it was quite a large one for the common Small Tortoiseshell so might have been something else - fluttering in the sunlight by the south-facing wall of the house before flying over the fence to next door's garden.

Whatever it was, it was a butterfly
