If they're on  a memory card you might be able to retrieve them somehow but I haven't a clue about that sort of stuff. DavidK is the camera bod so he might be able to help you. 

I wonder if Panda has her cossie with her for a dip in the sea...or does the salty water affect her fur....

Red thread, rust or something else ?

I'm not an expert Peanuts but a picture of the whole area will help solve the issue, unless someone comes along with the answer right away for you.  I expect the long term flooding is the reason though.

Do you have a pic showing where those bits are Peanuts? Is it just a few bits here and there or in bigger areas, and are those areas different from other parts of your grass in some way - wetter, shadier, drier etc.

J3J- you have to tell him that the forum reading and nature studying is a vital part of the process to ensure the success of the plants you buy 

Do you think he'll fall for that?

It's a little sparrow artjak. One of the young ones I think. He/she had a high old time - was there for ages  

Simple pleasures are the best aren't they? I could watch birds, bees and butterflies for hours. 

The buddleia looks quite blue in the pic chicky. It's  really more of a violet/magenta colour. Very rich - it's a new one to me and I love it.  I know they're common as muck but the bees and butterflies don't know that

Just reading your post about having plants too close BM - I think most of us have done that at some point - and often still doing it now 

Even when you read lots of info before planting about height and spread, your own conditions can mean plants might grow a lot taller or smaller anyway. 

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it...

here's a happy bee on a Sphaerocaphalon allium


Limp lettuce

Lindsay - lettuce actually like a bit of shade (on the whole) so I mainly grow in containers so that I can move them around. They're suffering a bit in the heat just now so I also put other pots in front of them to create some shade, and I also use shading material on the handrail of the back steps as I have a couple of pots there right by the back door so that they're handy .

This was the star in my garden on Sunday 

Despite the heavy rain on Saturday, this area I'm organising was very dry and dusty, so he had a lovely time!

 and loving the smell of Buddleia 'Dark Knight'

 and sweet pea 'White Ensign'
