Just in for a quick lunch. Choked on my sarnie when daughter showed me this pic. Just google 'obese, midget giraffe'. It's photo shopped but it'll make you laugh

I grew some sunflowers when the girls were small Dove and the best deterrent was ash from my Dad's fire in a ring round them. They left them alone after I did that.

Morning chick and Daisy. Do you get many giraffes in your 'neck' of the woods chick? 

That was quite good for this time of the morning if I say so myself  

Thanks Dove - but I have my brew of tea

Unfortunately when we start growing plants - whether to look at or to eat - it attracts attention from our slimy friends. Big society Dove

I have huge snails in this garden and they're in rampaging gangs this year because the garden now has some plants! It's one of those issues that benefits from as many attacks as possible. I use rings of  pine cones whenever I can, which seems to work better than anything, and I've been going out and gathering/dispatching. I may have to do the slug pub thing- - but I hope it settles a bit as more wildlife comes in as well.

I've got a few sacrificial hostas for them and I look in the log pile behind the shed where they like to hide away.

We're overrun with magpies here 

I was entertained by a little sparrow family on Sunday - dad came down onto the ground chirruping to introduce the two youngsters who hopped along the fence chatting to each other and fluffing themselves up, while mum looked on from the shed roof. Dad looked very proud  I would have got the camera but I'd have missed the antics by the time I came back out.

morning anyone who's around 

Fell asleep early  last night. Apologies to lily - I thought it was MrsG who had the alpine pot - should have gone to Specsavers...

Can't help with the seedling Dove - though it does look like something substantial will come from it!
