I've just pootled around in the garden for a few minutes - procrastinating - I've got paperwork to do - and as well as the violets and snowdrops etc, I've got a sprig of Sweet Rocket with a flower on!
My guess is condensation - perhaps some insulation in the roof might help?
What's your shed built of Chris?
Alan, I like King Edwards or Maris Piper for roasties Alan - if I can't get them I'll go for Desirée
Nice to know you feel at home Alan
Jim - so exciting - it really does sound as if you saw a Hen Harrier - we occasionally see them in Suffolk - wonderful birds. Yours may possibly have been moving northwards towards their breeding grounds on the grouse moors - a little early in the year for this to be happening, but it's an odd year!
Please report your sighting to the RSPB - Hen Harriers are such an endangered bird it's important that they keep track of as many as possible
Oh Tracey - that's really exciting - is the weather as good where you are today as it is here (so far)?
Oh yes, you've said it is - I must learn to read
Good morning all - stomping done in the daylight - I saw a lovely clump of little dark purple iris underneath a Viburnum Bodnatense - they looked gorgeous
Can you just stop talking about cake at this time in the morning please - it's a Fast Day here!!!
And if you know anyone who keeps guinea pigs, chicken or goats get some manure to add to the compost - wonderful activator
Heated seats Punkdoc - my son used to laugh at me when I had the smallholding - he said I had the ultimate Yuppie conundrum - how to drive a car with heated seats when wearing a long waxed riding coat
