I get clematis buds nibbled like that quite often. I'd guess snails - I get monster ones in this garden.

Aren't bees brilliant! 

My daughter used to love seeing all the pollen on their legs when she was little - she loved their 'orange trousers'

Morning all. Cold and damp here, only 4 degrees when I went to feed the birds so I doubt painting's on the cards. Where has spring gone? 

Hope everyone has a good day whatever they are up to - don't eat  too much cake Stacey - save some for us for later 

Friend round last night so off for a look round here now.

Compost it for a few months till it's rotted down then it'll be fine to use. It's no different to 'old style' straw bedding in that respect. Most horses are bedded on shavings now

I caught the end of an Alan Titchmarsh programme about woodland this afternoon. He was talking about how Britain was covered in forest and that a squirrel, if he was so inclined, could have travelled from the north of Scotland to the south of England without ever touching the ground.

Get if off your chest.

Potters- agree totally.

Lily - according to a deputy head teacher,apparently my youngest got a B in a Higher prelim recently- in a subject she didn't take...Now that's really clever!

KEF and lily - I usually spell it without the 'a'. Thought I'd give her the proper title today though....

I was quite restrained  - could have easily bought half a dozen of them. Freezing cold wind blowing though - wanted to get home and get a warm up!

She'll fit in well KEF 

I thought Vespa Crabro was a scooter...
