Welcome to the potting shed

Hi Warren and welcome   Sounds as if you really have been bitten by the gardening bug 

Whereabouts (roughly) in the country are you?  It always helps to know climate, soil etc when discussing our gardens.  I'm in East Anglia 

Anyone knows what is this yellow-leaf plant?

I can make the link work if I highlight it and then right-click - but I've no idea what it is.

Lovely 

Who else loves the humble sempervivum

We love sempervivums - used to have a long narrow raised brick bed of them alongside the front path of the Victorian terraced cottage where we used to live - they looked lovely with gravel around them.  Now we have some in a terracotta pot on the terrace.

No artjak, don't think they'll go up the tree after adult birds, but they do eat eggs and nestlings.   Where you are, I would imagine the main diet is amphibians.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Just come in from watering - had to give the new border in the front garden a real soaking with the hose as all the plants are recently planted - then I turned the hose on the clematis, honeysuckles and roses on the Shady Bank - it may be shady but in this heat they're drying out.  I gave the veg beds a good soaking with the sprinkler last night so they're ok, but the raised beds all needed plenty of water again today.

They'll travel quite a way, and climb trees, to get to a bird's nest!

Think the younger ones eat slugs, but the bigger the snake, the bigger the prey - big ones will go for frogs, small mammals and birds - keep an eye on those baby robins!!!

I think you're going to get ours tomorrow Archie, and we're going to get your rain - but I hope not 'cos son is helping out here http://www.maverickfestival.co.uk/ 

He'll have been erecting teepees today and possibly doing some sound engineer stuff over the weekend - hope the weather stays good for him - he deserves some fun
