SMALL LEAVES AND DEBRIS ON THE LAWN

There have been helpful suggestions - several of them - but you've always got an excuse for not using it - so you're just going to have to carry on bending over and picking the stuff up then aren't you.

That's a Red Soldier Beetle    Beautiful things.


You'll find the longer grass is very popular with your frogs ....... ours spend most of the summer in the long grass, just visiting the pond from time to time for a sunbathe.    If you do decide to cut  it from time to time do brush through it just before mowing to alert the frogs and chase them to safety ... otherwise the results can be bloody carnage

There seems to be a lot of wums on the forum recently, or is that my imagination?  


Bless 'em, they seem to believe they're camouflaged
