I'd like to see the great tits chase this one away from the feeder! 



It's a bit blurry, but you should be able to see a muntjac deer on her hind legs at one of my brother's bird feeders.  He said that as he watched the deer moved around to the other side of the feeder to access another hole, without putting her fore-feet on the ground. He said she was just as steady on two legs as most people are!  She's been emptying the feeder every morning.

I've always used Hammerite in the past and found it to stand up well to tough weather conditions.

What is this weed all over my lawn?

Posted: 13/04/2017 at 15:01

Yes, sycamore tree seedlings - mowing will deal with them.  In future try to mow the lawn before they grow their big leaves.  

Pea plants

Hi Homebird 


I would harden them off first - put them outside during the day and take them in at night for about a  week, then they should be fine planted out.

What do I do with my jurassic plant?

Posted: 13/04/2017 at 14:28

It looks like one of the varieties of aloe - it needs quite dry conditions - if the soil is wet let it dry out and then only water it occasionally.  


It also needs to be in quite bright sunlight, but not hot sunshine - an east or west facing windowsill is good.  


I hope that helps 


Not really sure why they call it Jurassic ... marketing people getting creative I expect
