MrsG -we're doing the same- a little takeaway! Well it is the first day of my holiday 

Can't be bothered cooking as I want to go out and cut the grass now that it'll be dry adn I've been concreting so I'm weary.

Fidget- you're too good. Apple and blackberry pie for me please! Is destrigging the proper name for taking all the 'bits' off? Not heard that before.

Oops something happened there. 

Aah but Verdun- you didn't read the post properly- blackcap already has the two pyracanthas and was asking where to put them- and having read your reply I think I know your answer! I was merely answering the question you cheeky monkey 

And are your hollies always funny?

Consider the hollies.....golden king is superb.  Yellow and green evergreen foliage with red berries.  Natural comical shape can be easily controlled by once a year trim.

Could be leatherjacket damage -they're the larvae of crane flies and eat grass roots. At this time of year they are usually adults though and getting ready to lay eggs which then hatch during this month or so. Has the damage just appeared Marion or has it been there a while? If it's just happened then it's unlikely to be these but then again, with the way the weather's been this year they may have laid their eggs earlier than usual!

Yes and photos please  if you can! 

We love a bee pic on here 

wb- that was nearly as bad a joke as Verdun's!

singy - I used to enjoy watching Tool Time starring Tim Allen ....but that was an entirely different show! 

Very funny too 

wb- not sure about my Mum but she wasn't even happy switching on the tv let alone dealing with electrical cables!

It worked for me when staying on the midge-infested Hebrides - and if it makes you all soft and nice to snuggle up to who's complaining 

I'd heard someone was trying to get it marketed as insect repellant but myabe it was an urban myth!

Watched my neighbour (male) once mowing his lawn with an electric mower. Said to him over the fence "mind the cable it's.........." Bang!

My mum was never allowed to use the mower because she was always doing that!

I've just noticed (and maybe it's a by-product of the recent forum 'blips' ) but why is everyone putting hyphens between -every- word -on their- thread- titles!!!

Is it a new fashion ???
