Massive grass snake

Lucky you Artjak  Very Lucky you  

I know grass snakes have been seen around here but we've not seen one in our garden - yet.    

When I had the smallholding we had grass snakes in the meadows and swimming in the ponds catching Gt Crested Newts. 

HELLO FORKERS!

 Clari ((hugs))  yet another example of the Peter Principle in operation!   But as you say, another week with someone owing you a salary isn't all bad.  The other bosses aren't planning a Buy Out and not telling him, are they?

Could you make an arbour seat against the fence and train the wisteria over it?  Then when the fence needs replacing you can work around it.

Bekkie, I was very young and made totally the wrong choice at the beginning - it was a lonely relationship but I stuck it out until the children had grown up then left..........then I met OH

I'm sorry but I can't see any way that this can be trained into a standard if it has two 'leaders'.  

A standard needs to be trained from the beginning, starting with a single stem grown on until it reaches the required height before pinching out.
