Just had a phone chat with Wonky - she sends ((hugs)) to all, especially Chicky - glad OH is home

Wonky and her lovely hub have a friend down from Liverpool for the weekend, and are having a bit of a gathering to 'warm the new flat' so she's not got time to post at the moment.  I've told her I'll pass on her best wishes to you all.

Hosta - that sounds brilliant for OH

Now I'm going to have a doze, as I'll be driving late this evening.

I do most of my tidying up in the early spring - as you say, the wildlife need somewhere to spend the winter.  Fungi are useful - they break down organic matter and incorporate it into the soil.  Not a problem

Unexplained frog deaths

Female frogs are leaving the ponds and looking for hiding places to spend the winter - this makes them vulnerable to predation - magpies and other members of the crow family will pick them up by a limb and shake until ................. then another limb......... etc   but even corvids have to eat ...
