Resurrected Fifteen

Hello folks 


The sun is shining   OH has cut the grass .... I've had a shower and washed my hair ... all is well with the world ... 


Glad to hear Boo is back ... those feral tom cats ... love their independance ... weep for their wounds.

Help yourselves ...... we've had our share 


Re the plant thingy .... I still think the plant that's had the most influence on gardens (whether for good or ill)  in the last however many years is Cupressus Leylandii .......... just imagine how our gardens were before they appeared on the scene ... people chatting over the fence etc .... now we get so many queries from people who think they can't enjoy their garden without screening off and shutting out the rest of the world with a wall of monotone green ....

The mystery of the disappearing hedgehogs

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 10:31

They often 'disappear' for a few weeks in the summer because the females have 'nursery responsibilities' and change their routine.  

Ladybug, good or bad

Best advice from all quarters nowadays is that Harlequin ladybirds are here to stay ... they cannot be eradicated and should be left to get on with eating aphids.  They're certainly doing a fantastic job in my garden.

Good morning all 


Hope Mrs Pdoc is feeling better soon.  


I'm downstairs and breakfasted ...... I've had a proper shower  


As I came downstairs I said to OH 'I can smell hot croissants' ... he said that next door were breakfasting outside .......... but HE WAS FIBBING!!!


Look what was in the oven ... he'd taken frozen ones out of the freezer last night and they'd risen overnight and he'd baked them while I was in the shower.



We've had a lovely breakfast of croissants with my raspberry jam and really tasty coffee, and now he's out there mowing the grass

When I acquired OH his view of wine wasn't great ... not being far removed from student parties and lots of cheap red ... he is now a fan.  However we also both enjoy good cider and real ale   Quality stuff is good, whatever variety
