Red bird bath

Hmm, so Carol V is responsible for the industrial-scale fishing of krill which is causing the decline of whales and other species which rely on it - afraid I've always found her intensely annoying and she's not going the right way to change my opinion .... 

Relaying lawn

Is it really that bad?  It's much easier to renovate a lawn than prepare and returf.

Decided to have lunch before doing the back lawn - Cromer crab salad

Front lawn mowed and edges trimmed - back lawn to do when I've had a cool drink - currently 28.3C in the shade and rising!

Red bird bath

I had the birdbath before I had the pond - the birds use both - I think the pigeons are scared of the deeper water in the pond - you can see from the look on their faces they're thinking, "There be sharks!"

Mine does that sometimes - I scrub it out with a mild solution of Milton - don't know if that's right - the RSPB sell special bird disinfectants don't they - the Milton seems to work. 

Broad beans

I find they keep much better if I blanch them - but if I've got a few and I'm going to use them in a week or so I'll sometimes just pop them in a bag and straight into the freezer - but they're never quite as good as when I blanch them.  

Didn't have room to grow them this year - OH grew some garlic in the empty patch last autumn - very good garlic but I'm envious of your beans - I've bought some frozen ones

You obviously got him before the manufacturers had finished him off!

I blanch them for about a minute then plunge into iced water - cool - drain - dry on tea towel and freeze.
