The reddish colouring may be because it's been in a sunny spot - mine is in an east facing window and keeps its green colour.  

Anyone a member of RHS?

Hmmm - family 'stuff' means we've not yet been able to plant our Amelanchier - (multi-stemmed around 7ft tall).  Shall we plant it this weekend, water it well until we leave on Thursday and hope it doesn't dry out ...........or water it and leave it in it's container in a very shady and protected spot until we return on the 12th?


Mer Office forecast for the relevant period is


"... Cloud and outbreaks of rain, some heavy and thundery are likely to still be affecting England and Wales during Wednesday and Thursday, but will gradually move south to be replaced by sunshine and heavy showers. Scotland and Northern Ireland however should be mostly dry with variable amounts of cloud. In the sunnier spells it will feel warm, especially in the west, but North Sea coasts are likely to be rather cool, especially in the brisk northeasterly wind. Thereafter most parts should see a good deal of dry weather, but also some showers, these most likely across the south. Northern and western parts will most likely see the driest, sunniest and warmest conditions, while elsewhere may see the fine weather broken up by some cloudier, cooler days with rain at times...."

He's a recent fledgling. Cat/dog food will be fine for him, but beware, as has been said, you're likely to have a friend for life ;-)

It's the time of year when grass flowers and seeds (think of hay meadows and hay-making time).


Just keep mowing

Grass flowers and seeds as do most plants - nothing that can be done about that.  The seed heads can be mown off. Grass needs mowing at least once a week at this time of year - I would lower the cutting blade a bit - not too low - medium will be fine.

Good morning all. The sun is burning off the early morning mist here in Lincolnshire And there's a Song thrush singing in MILs garden. Hopefully I'll be back home tonight for a weekend of getting the garden ready for our holiday ...
