Lovely sitting here by the inglenook, listening to the jackdaws on the chimney and the church clock chiming the quarter hours. An idyllic sunny spring morning.

I agree with Buttercup. You have an aronia on Apple roots. The roots will supply water and nutrition. That's all.

Morning all. Slept like a log here. We'll be setting off for home later this morning and then back into our routine too.

Hello just popping in on phone. Had a lovely visit to Nut's garden today to see the results of all her lopping, pruning and shredding. Loads more light and lots of space for bigger beds and borders. Lots of spring colour already.
Sat in the car and watched a large red kite being harassed by a couple of crows on way back to MILs. Lovely meal out this evening. Now I'll just see what's been going on here then it's time to sleep. Sweet dreams everyone

Caterpillars

Think it's the caterpillar of the Angle Shades moth. I'd scatter some dried mealworms and suet sprinkles around your plants to attract the blackbirds and robins etc who will then find and eat the caterpillars - hopefully

Identify weed

Yes yarrow. My front lawn is full of it in the summer but at least it stays green when the grass goes brown in the drought. It's not very susceptible to lawn weed killers. I just keep mowing on medium height and take biggest plants out at the root with a sturdy penknife.
