Hee hee  

Perhaps she's lying sozzled in a corner somewhere  

Do we have a bird expert on the forum?

Didn't know you were an expert on 'birds' Hosta...

Thanks Dove - I know you all will be  

Oooh - I forgot to get a Kit Kat when I was out earlier. Perhaps I'll treat myself on the way home tomorrow. I know how to live  

I take it Scotland won? Hurray - we won something in sport!  

Why are blackbirds digging the garden

Posted: 10/10/2015 at 19:31

I'd pay to have more blackbirds in the garden. They're not as forthcoming as I'd like, despite having plenty of suitable areas for them - especially a nice border to rummage in - with a bark mulch! At a previous garden, they used to make me laugh, hoiking the bark out to find all sorts of tasty morsels and snaffling the berries from the pyracantha near the front door

Evening all - and all who've been and gone...

Been busy outside getting rid of lots of branches, digging out the dog rose, moving some plants and generally having a rummage. Salmon and carrots for tea now - yum.

That looks very cosy Frit  

Glad the thumb is a bit better RB. Very unpleasant 

Hope your foot is better Lesley - I meant to ask you earlier. Just as well you're not coming with me tomorrow 

Weather to be cloudy and maybe a shower or three, but it'll be fine. Should be good enough for some decent pix. Thanks for all the good wishes and sponsoring. 

You're  a damn fine bunch - but then, I knew that already  

Sad plant!

I now only have a ten minute commute to work Jo, so it's easier to resist 

'Fess up Hosta - you were partying hard at fidget's hen do and that's why you're Kerry Packered. I've seen the photographic evidence....

I really must get on and shove all the hacked bits of greenery from yesterday into the brown bin - or else it'll be dinner time and not a pot washed...

Is this really cruel?

Is that pig a friend of 'Dave's' Lesley?

What leafs should I use in a leaf mold pile?

No - they were wet going in and they stayed wet Jo.  Yours should too where you are - similar weather to me!

 I just poked holes in the bags and shoved them in a corner. They were usable after a year though not completely broken down. Surprisingly quick.

I'd  do the walk Jo  

Letting them melt Jo....

That's a hanging offence....
