I hang feeders with seed in for the sparrows and suet and sunflower hearts for the tits, greenfinches, goldfinches and robins etc.  Keeps everyone happy

  Remember last year we had a robin who would take mealworms from our hand?  Well his nestlings must have hatched as he's been in the garden shouting at us - the mealworms arrived in the post yesterday and today he was taking them from my hand, straight off.    Can't stand out there all day with mealworms in my outstretched palm - got to go to tennis in a few mins so I've put some in a dish on the chair on the terrace and left OH in charge

Place your bets....

Cheers Hosta   Bro visited yesterday - she was tired and weak but awake - he talked to her about keeping pigs on the farm when we were children and she remembered that. 

No one visiting her today but the lovely staff will be with her.  I'm visiting tomorrow with Wonky. 

Beaus Mum   good to see you

... is glyphosate dog friendly ( like most weed killers, allowing a few hours for the stuff to work before normal service can be resumed with children and animals)?

Yes just let it dry then they'll be fine

woodlice, the menaces :(

Woodlice - very useful critters in the garden, and very good mothers ... apparently

Yes, it's the white flowering bindweed aka Greater Bindweed
