Global warming

Posted: 13/02/2017 at 17:42

KT53  Maybe I've misunderstood something, but my understanding was that although global temperatures overall are rising, this is causing weather patterns to become more erratic, so some areas are having snap cold spells which have not been usual before, eg the very cold spell in part of the US a while back, while some areas have hotter temperatures than has been usual in the past and some have wetter spells. 

There was a time when we thought that global warming simply meant warmer weather and rising sea levels - hence a sudden interest in drought resistant plantings. As time has gone on we're learning that it's much more complex than that. 

Why is my ivy dropping it's leaves?

presumably the stems and roots of the ivy are the other side of the wall?  Whose land/garden is over there?

That sort of supports the theory of global warming. 

Global warming doesn't mean that our weather is getting warmer - it means that our weather patterns are becoming more and more erratic. 

Who's visiting your bird feeders?

If you're anywhere near a Notcutts garden centre they're selling various bird nesting boxes 2 for the price of one during February.

Some nice wooden ones with slats roofs and easy-clean based £14.99 for two.

Are they falling off or are wood pigeons ripping them off and eating them?

I've found this thread again - I thought it'd be nice to bump it up again.  

We can remember old friends, past and present, and new forum friends can read how we came to have the monikers that we do, and tell us how they decided what to call themselves.

I'm back from the GC ... with more than I went for of course   Who knew that there's such a thing as 'sticky' bird nest boxes   Two for the price of one!!! 

It would've been rude not to, wouldn't it?

New look for your garden shed

Does your husband like 'Street Art' or is he more of a Classic Hip Hop graffiti fan?

Perhaps you could post a photo of your shed to give us some idea of your options.
