Just thought I'd say that it turns the right way up when I click on it, but I suppose that may be down to the software on my laptop

The way undertakers and crematoria are booked up these days, they'd have been lucky to get one arranged inside a fortnight Fidget

Hello folks - niece collected and fed - now she and OH are in the studio making a piece of collaborative art.  

When she arrived there were frogs hopping about all over the lawn in the bright sunshine - we spotted at least six !  Don't know if Hissing Sid had been about again and that's why they were so active on the lawn, but things have calmed down now and all but one are happily sunbathing amongst the pond weeds.  The one that isn't tried to catch a wasp and we watched him spit it out - the wasp crawled away and the frog sat in the pond looking a bit disgruntled - then suddenly he leapt out of the pond and across the lawn, presumably in search of something else for lunch. 

Sorry to hear of poorly gardeners and baby with delicate digestive system and hope all is well for everyone very soon ((hugs))

Fidget - that sounds marvellous   We shall expect marvellous photos when you get back.

Yes ................ but there were lots of pests that over- wintered too - many more slugs and aphids than usual for lots of people. 

There's a lot to be said for a proper cold snap

Rotting courgettes

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 07:35

The immature courgette is behind the female flower - if you have the immature courgette there must have been a flower, but it sounds as if they're not being pollinated - it's often this way when the plant is young - it should start to improve soon ......... fingers crossed
