GGranny- Dove's right- if you can retrieve the nest at a later date the children will be fascinated. They are the most astonishing pieces of architecture - better than any human can create. If you can involve children the fear lessens. I have a work colleague with a 3yr old son who was frightened of spiders. One day at work there was a spider in the workshop and he was quite wary of it. I gathered it up and took him outside as well just saying 'come on and we'll put him somewhere safe where he'd rather be ' and we put the spider in the ivy on the wall. Result - little boy now wants to see where the spider is and no longer scared - just interested. Looked for the spider in the ivy whenever he came in to see if it was there. When mine were little a child along the road from us was frightened of butterflies. I just thought it was so sad.

Good Evening FORKERS

Ta all! Painted it first KEF or I wouldn't have been able to do the back! Not so orange looking now thank goodness. Quite easy to shift as long as you have a person at each corner. Weather was perfect so didn't have to worry about stuff lying around getting wet. 

Cake sounds lovely Dove. Do you keep the nectarines big and cook them a little first or is it a puree? I polished off some raspberries and cream with a piece of daughter's birthday cake yesterday. Well - they'd only have gone off....

Weary now so will catch up with posts and snooze in front of some recorded tv.

Who are you calling wee Gilly?

I watched it last night which is unusual for me as I normally record it and watch later. Have to agree with Dove and Gilly-didn't really notice it, and I find a lot of programmes irritating because of background 'stuff'.

The big advantage of thyme is that you can walk on it without doing it any harm. I had a very low growing one years back which would have been ideal. Only grew about an inch or so and that was when it flowered. Flowers on it were tiny. Will see if I can find the name of it somewhere.

Sorry chick- meant to say - that's a cracker!!

Anyone having trouble with the message doo dah- I've PMd Daniel cos mine's working no prob.

I set the emails as spam a while back because they got on my nerves and kept appearing even when my settings have them as 'off'. That's worked a treat.

Replied on the other (same?) thread to say I've PMd Daniel because the PM thing isn't working for some people so I told him about the spell check and the hit and miss notifications.
