Drink plenty of water Wonky - OH says that the majority of headaches are caused by dehydration, and you know he knows everything 

Just been listening to Tony Blair on Today prog  ... talk about weasel words!!!   And is nobody going to mention poor David Kelly??? 

Wonky, I've got the plants I promised for your MIL, plus the ones from Hosta that I've been looking after for you ... also some big pots.    I may have to have the top down ...

Foxes & cabbages?!

Sounds like young foxes having fun and treating your garden as an adventure playground - teenagers eh 

I've not used one myself, but what about trying a water scarecrow? 

Anyone know if this is bee,wasp or honeybee?

Yes, one of the many types of hoverfly - great to have in the garden, they eat aphids and pollinate our flowers and do many other useful things.  They are flies and have no sting. 

what dunnit?

I look at the well manicured hands on some of the telly  gardening presenters, and think..

They've not seen much action in the garden. No badges of honour. Or maybe they all have nettle free brambles free and rose free gardens. Hmmm.

I figure so long as my tetanus jab is up to date, I'll be ok. 

See original post

 Nah, they're so busy being on tv/writing articles/giving talks that the Undergardeners are the ones with the badges of honour 

Hope it's better soon Nut - I'd best pack some Aloe Vera gel on Thursday just in case ...
