No need to apologise wcogs. 

I'd agree with you about cookery shows though

Pat - Sheps puts us all to shame - have you looked back at all his other pix? We're all in awe of his skills and equipment. Lets say he's slightly more 'professional' than the rest of us...  

Wish David would come back though...missing him on this thread in particular 

nut - you're being very modest

You might find a few new shoots coming through later anyway Wills, if you've planted it deeply. It encourages that

Morning all/afties Pat if you're around - I haven't looked back beyond this page  

Dove - I'd have more coffee and forget the cucumbers...and definitely that other thing...

chicky - love the pic. Don't the Moodies have the loveliest album titles?   A schoolfriend got me into them, but I liked the artwork and the titles more than their music at that point...  I've come to like them more over time! The album JH did with John Lodge was gorgeous though - Blue Jays. I played it constantly when I got it.  Ahhh vinyl, and scratches...those were the days!  

Clari...aren't people daft? ..and thoughtless...

That's really interesting too Liri! 

Probably right about poorish soil for that rhodie - never been fed while I've been here, and probably not since it was planted, if the previous owner's efforts were anything to go by. Seems very happy to be neglected and hacked back on a regular basis. It won't survive the next hack though - it's going to be to the ankles!... 

I don't tend to cosset plants much either - once they're in and established, they have to get on with it. Shrubs especially.

Oh Sheps - that's just fabulous....deeply jealous! 

The detail you get with your camera is astonishing.

I've just recommended this thread to someone who has started a wildlife pic thread. 

I didn't get walking this weekend again due to rubbish weather. Any pix would have looked like this...

Nuisance Birds...

It's what they do at this time of year Dan. They mate, lay eggs and have youngsters. Unfortunately, they're very boisterous compared to other birds. We had a huge colony of them in the trees near our last house. 

Ear plugs may be the only solution I'm afraid....
