Sandwich Dove...

They're determined little b****** aren't they? I saw a tv prog a few years ago where the owners had erected an assault course in an attempt to see how far they could go with trying to out fox them. It was hilarious!

It's like bloomin winter here -wet, windy and 8 degrees  

I used to like Campari with lemonade - tasted like grapefruit. Don't drink so haven't had it in donkey's years.

Edjacash, edjucash,eddjuc....'learnin' stuff' I calls it 

KEF I know a joke about a man going hunting and encountering a bear in the woods but I don't think it's suitable for here...

Looks like Spirea arguta Bridal Wreath to me. They're lovely shrubs for this time of year 

Photos of your ponds please

Try watercress Hartleyhare. Just buy a bag from the supermarket and chuck it in. It feeds on the nutrients that the weed likes. Easy to pull out if it gets a bit big.

Is your pond shallow? That can contribute as the water heats up  more quickly.

Morning all. Off soon for another day at the salt mines..

Lots of rain here last night so it'll do the grass good, but looks like we're getting lots more of over the next few days 

Staying home sounds a good option fidget 

Off for a look round before I head off.

Some of mine are duchesses chick....

My DD was in a tall clematis pot and a bit pot bound, and I planted it in a 15" pot from summer till autumn when I planted it into the raised bed. It's roots completely filled the pot when I took it out. 

Secateurs open?

I always store mine closed just because I think it's better for them but you're right - that's the sort of thing that could be very nasty. I hope you're ok 

I need hugs too....

I know nothing about football

Big black 'bursty' clouds here earlier- managed to rescue the washing though 

Potted up my new Clematis and they seem happy enough. Don't you just hate those bits of tape stapled onto the canes etc? I never seem to be able to snip them off without a few delicate stems getting a haircut as well 

allium- it's when you find the 'eaten' bit chucked up a carpet ....
