Is it a Robin?

My guess is that it's a dunnock aka hedge sparrow - have a look at the video on here http://www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/discoverandlearn/birdguide/name/d/dunnock/index.aspx

Does anyone remember where I put the silver nut dish and the silver fruit bowl last January?   They're not in the sideboard where they should be

 

Oh well, if I can't find them I don't have to get the silver polish out do I?

Strictly is back!

According to the newspapers, it's likely Aliona will be in no condition to fit into the frocks next year, let alone be lifted and spun around

I'm back - I wish I'd left it until tomorrow - the shops will be empty then, everyone's there today   But I did take advantage of the fact that Waitrose's superb cafeteria was virtually empty to treat myself to a bacon bap and coffee and a read of the Guardian. 

Now I've just got to unpack the shopping and make some pastry etc etc etc .............

Fair enough...if ecokid is over 60, has plenty of spare time and wants to exercise on his hands and knees for hours on end there is another way.

Perhaps it's just me .... but I enjoy it

Hello Garden Fairy

I use an area of the garden that has been manured for a previous crop, so that the manure has been well broken down by the time I'm ready to sow the carrots - then I use a light sprinkling of Fish, Blood and Bone when preparing the bed.  It's an organic slow-release fertiliser and I find that's all they need.  Too much fertiliser and you'll get a lot of leaf and no carrot.
