Birds galore

Lovely photo

We get hours of pleasure watching 'our' birds, and listening to them singing.  They do seem to have a regular routine don't they?  As well as feeders I have birdbaths both at home and outside my office window at work (just a big plastic pot saucer) and the birds are visiting it all day - an absolute delight

Mine get a bit of that on lower leaves - I put it down to old age (the leaves, not mine) and I don't worry about it - it usually occurs about the time the first truss have set and I give the plants some feed and the lower leaves get removed anyway.

Hi Carrie - good to meet you at the weekend - thanks for your hospitality.

All plants happily survived the journey back to Norfolk and are sitting in a sheltered corner of the terrace amongst some ferns and hostas, waiting for me to finish work for the week and plant them out

TT  have a look here -  they collect and refurbish old tools and then make sure they go to projects where they will be useful.

Lyn, I think that's a sensible solution - if you do it in the autumn it'll be fine 

Can anyone please identify these?

Looks like you've got a well-planted border there Glyn
