Don't panic

Is it possible that a dog or a fox has urinated on the lawn?  That's what it looks like to me.  Canine (particuarly bitch) urine will scorch grass.  There are things you can do to help, but time will deal with it - the thing to do is to stop it happening again, if at all possible.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/problems/lawns/dog-urine-on-lawns/430.html

Just love Bodmin - we stayed in an idyllic little cottage there just off the edge of the moor a few years ago - got woken around 3am by a nightingale in the garden

Good morning you two and any/everybody else who's about

Watched Kew on a Plate, then straight to bed and slept solidly until 6am, dreaming about helping my solicitor to run a hockey team  

Temps dropped to nearly freezing here overnight, but already up to 6.4C

....  Study now is virtually empty and can now be used as a garden planning room....

  Mine's got a lot more space in it too - still boxes of Aged P's papers etc, but they can be in a heap in the corner.  Question - at what stage should one's adult children take on responsibility for storing the box of their first school books etc
