I think there is little that can be done - we are all under this pressure - times they are a'changin

They'll be perfectly fine.  They'll also provide good nest sites for birds, cover for hedgehogs and other small mammals, nectar for insects and berries for birds - not my favourite hedge plant but not a problem to wildlife.

Oh bu$$er! BU$$ER!  BU$$ER!!!  There I was, enjoyinf the sunshine, potting up some spring bulbs, when I took firm hold of a bag of compost and disturbed a queen wasp who was inspecting it as a potential winter home.  She stung me on my ring finger!!!  OUCH!!!

I've taken my ring off and applied antihistamine cream but it's swelling and my hand and wrist are tingling.  OH has tidied up my bulbs, pots and compost which will have to wait  for another day.

It's a bit blurry ......... if I zoom right in I think I can see seedpods that look to me like  tiny violas but that may be because I've zoomed in so close - do they look like this?

 and then open up a bit like this?


Strange problem....
