Plantus Unidentifidous

Just a thought - if you've not known it was a delphinium, and consequently you haven't been surrounding it with eggshells, coffee grounds and grit and inspecting it half hourly, what do your slugs, snails and delphinium moths think they're up to???  Slackers the lot of 'em!!!

Unhappy Morello Cherry Tree

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 08:52

If you look at cherry trees in the south of France, in hot sunny weather they droop their leaves - it reduces the surface area exposed to the sun so they don't lose so much water due to transpiration in the heat.  

How many frogs?

We've always had a few frogs visit our garden from next door who have a pond.  We made a small wildlife pond this spring and now we have several frogs in residence and look forward to many more
