Acuba japonica variegata and Choisya Sundance

We put some live mealworms out yesterday and a pair of robins were back and forth all day taking beaks full to their nestlings.  We moved the dish closer and closer to the terrace table and it didn't deter them - today the dish is on the table - we shall see if the robins are brave enough to join us for our morning coffee

In the late afternoon a hen blackbird was bathing at the end of the pond while a robin was using the shallower birdbath nearby - as soon as the blackbird saw this she left the pond to use the birdbath and the robin had to wait until she'd finished before it could come back.  What a dog in the manger

Does anyone recognise this dahlia?

I've put mine straight into some of the pots I usually use for tomatoes - I'm determined not to grow quite so many tomatoes this year so I'm filling the pots up with other things - and they're in a sheltered spot on the terrace

Moonlight runner beans

Fantastic - if you lot are buying varieties that do well in cold wet weather, that means we're guaranteed to have a heatwave - Yippee!!!

The Tomatoes have arrived!!

Wildlife pond without liner

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 06:52

You don't need heavy boulders - we've used turf to cover the edges of the pond liner and allow it to grow longer around the pond to provide the frogs etc with some cover to hide in.  This is the day the turves were laid

And this is a couple of months later, with baskets of native plants getting established in the pond.


Shrub Id please
