Oak tree problems

We get quite a few twigs on the lawn below our big ash trees - we put it down to portly wood pigeons

Thzad - congratulations to you and your fellow students on your winning garden 

A tiny plant ID, and a quick question about roses.

I'd dig it up with plenty of the soil around it, being careful not to damage the very fine roots, and pop it in a pot.  If it's a tree or shrub that grows outside, it'll be fine left outside in a sheltered corner. Just don't let it dry out - on the other hand, don't overwater it, especially in the winter.

I think Nut means that the tree seedling is likely to have come from seed from a nearby tree - what trees have you growing nearby?

No idea about the seedling - you could try potting it up if you're really curious.

Is the rose new?  It looks to me as if the paler roses were yellow (there's yellow at the base of the central petals) and they've faded in bright sunlight.  

Fungi - but what kind

Super photo Lesley........if you lay on the ground and take a pic from that perspective, the results can be quite stunning.  (I used to do a lot of that sort of thing)

I used to do a lot of that sort of thing too Philippa - I remember very early indeed one morning I was laying on my tum on the grass path up to the allotments, photographing the village in the valley below as it emerged through some autumn mist.  Suddenly there were some rapid heavy footsteps and a lot of huffing and puffing - an elderly allotmenteer was on his way back from feeding his pig (large rural allotments) and he saw me and thought I was a dead body.  Bless him he nearly had a heart attack when I rolled over and spoke to him 

HELLO FORKERS!
