Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Posted: 23/07/2017 at 12:08

Well, the rain stopped so I went outside again ... finished summer pruning the grapevine, rough-weeded the herb bed, cut down the foxgloves that I'd selected and allowed to ripen seed, and swished them where I want them, picked some more sweet peas ............... and the heavens opened again ......... but 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue' is on so I'll stop for lunch ...

I have no Butterflys - help

I've seen more butterflies here in Norfolk this year than in the past few years and the number of species is increasing recently too ... I think the warm dry spring we had may have something to do with it.

ID please

I cut Polka to the ground in January, and they are just starting to fruit. (East Midlands)

Need to see the inside ... all we have there is a roundish greenish thing.  A pic of the calyx would be good too.

OH and Possum have got into comic books too - very Belgian to read "bandes dessinées".   I have a friend in Belgium with an entire room lined with made to measure shelves for his collection.  ...

 We have one of those friends ... he lives in a flat ... hope the floor can take the weight 

Beware Cheyngel ... I've known slugs to find their way indoors!

I should have stopped OH setting off for the city on his bike ... the heavens have opened and I've had to come indoors ... just had time to roughly weed the fruit patch and around the courgettes ... and found that the newest courgettes have been tasted by slugs Grrrrrr   I shall be out there tonight!!!  Perhaps a Slug Pub is needed!

Cheyngel  - hope the shop-minding goes well ... sounds just the sort of place my OH and his mates could happily spend several hours in
