frogs and newts

Posted: 28/08/2015 at 07:20

When we lived at The Mill we had loads of Gt Cresteds and we loved watching their mating display in the ponds in the spring - but every year some of them would try to spend the winter under our doormats where they were squashed by our size 7s and 9s   No wonder they're endangered, they've not got a lot of common sense

I need some help please!?

Good morning all

Well done Wonky   proud Dove here Knew you'd do it

It's a lovely morning here, but very autumnal, lots of dew on the grass and sparkly spiders' webs ... I think I've got a fairly relaxed day at home planned - if only I could find my diary - think I must've left it in the car - hope I've left it in the car - if not, where is it?

Good luck Panda   Think these assessment thingies are often about how you get on with others, working in teams, communication, confidence, initiative etc.  

Get well soon Pat ((hugs))

We hear tawnies in the oaktrees over the hill and sometimes one visits our ash trees - usually just to sit there and 'call' to neighbours on it's way back to the oak trees just before sun-up - as you say ' magical'.

We have large orange slugs at this time of year - they meet up on our back lawn and 'cuddle'   I'm reliably informed that these big slugs eat the little slugs that eat my plants so I leave the big ones alone ......... except for the one that hitched a ride in a box of plants to Snoodle's garden ...................... I think it's 'friend' misses him/her

I need some help please!?

Goat willow tree: to prune or not to prune

Our tree man told us not to remove more than a third of the branches, otherwise you will stimulate even more growth.
