MU  I love to lie on the lawn on warm evenings and the bats swoop low over me - I think the gnats are attracted to me () and the bats are after the gnats. OH says the bats are sometimes within an inch or so of my face -  I can sometimes feel the 'rush of air' from their wings.

Glad it's been a good day Pat 


Time for you to sit down for the evening and put your feet up?

Bats? Lovely   We haven't seen 'ours' yet ... They live in an old chalk mine a few hundred yards from here (now an SSSI) and fly over us on their way to the marshes in the evening, and on summer evenings we watch them hunting the cockchafers that gather around our ash tree ... Magical!  


Hope everyone had a good night and is getting a bit of a lie in

Good morning all  G'day Pat 


Have a lovely walk Fairy. Looking forward to pics. 


It looks like a beautiful morning - it'll be even better if we've lost that horrid chilly wind off the north sea which kept temps so low yesterday.

So if Beechgrove has the basic stuff for the average gardener what would be the point of GW carrying the same information?

Supper eaten and washed up - on the sofa with a Norfolk G&T  watching the Ireland programme for the second time.


By what sort of bad luck is it that on Mothering Sunday, when we should get a lie in, we have to put the clocks forward and get up an hour earlier than we should 

Any Idea What This Is?

Yes, the berries are toxic - but the flowers are strangely beautiful and fascinating and there's loads of folklore about them.  A wonderful plant in a woodland setting .... just not in a flower border.
