Love makes you blind fidget.

He probably thinks they are Christmas cards.

Didn't think it made you forgetful though.

Just mention that you need to bake a birthday cake and see what happens . I am sure he is just winding you up and there is a surprise later.

Or you could just walk round naked and when he asks why say its your birthday suit.

Don't forget the C/N ratio. Its very important.

Do a search on this site for 'compost / composting / compost bins' and have a read through. There is some excellent advise.

Is there anything in the bins at the moment Dan Smith?

If there is, can you have a root about in it with a fork to see if there any red wiggling worms in there please. You could be in for a treat.

Regards Edd.

PS. It looks like at some point someone has tried to protect some of those plants and has given up. That is unfortunate but you never know what could be in there! I can't help with ID at this stage. Sorry

Busy-Lizzie is correct with "Alchemilla Mollis" it is a bit of a thug.

Yes the 'scarecrow' really do work and i think they are the most affective solution i have found.

I think you have mentioned the 3 native reptile before GemmaJF. What do you have? I know the UK list is not that long unfortunately.

Oops - missed you there Woody, in your kipper tie - morning



That reminds me of a oldie but a goodie! 

NoddyHolder goes into an outfitters to purchase a new 70's style outfit. The shopkeeper asks him if he needs any help and Noddy tells him he wants the works, flares, big lapels and big collars. So he's got it all on, but they both decide that there is something missing, the shopkeeper asks:

"How about a kipper tie?"

Noddy replies 'Er, yeah thanks, milk and two sugars please.'
