Lovely pix art - sorry you're unwell. You can join me on the settee 

I know what you mean about cacti but in the right setting they look terrific. Quite fascinating plants though.

Panda - I just had to phone Scottish Water as 15 mins ago there was nothing coming out the cold tap. Burst pipe or something.

No cistern filling....thank goodness it didn't happen yesterday!

I just realised the gaps on that basket are as wide as the ones on the baskets I used for a hanging feeder like Ndumpling did, but the starlings never seemed to come near the ground one.

unless they kept watch.... and waited till I went out....

I tried that too Ndumpling but the starlings still got inside and ate everything!

Here it is art

 Most of the slabs have now been moved as I'm putting a lawn here so I'll need to find another little spot for the 'cage'

 I think I posted a pic last year art. I'll try and find it.

I just had a look online for those ground  cage feeders kjt - knew I'd seen them somewhere! The RSPB sells them but they're quite pricey. I reckon you could rig up something similar fairly easily.

I love my back door shoes Topbird - great for when you take bins out, bring washing in, feed birds etc. The new ones are big enough to let me put them on without taking my slippers off  

Mine are dark green - got them in B&Q. Gave the turquoise ones to oldest daughter
