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....

Gorgeous pic nut. Not much can beat watching, and listening to, a load of bees and hoverflies on a quiet, sunny day, just 'doing their thing'

Don't forget you can put all these pix on  the camera thread too - 'Camera talk'.  It's full of lovely wildlife photos.

Just saw your response Liri. You may well be right about the pinks - the fact that they're growing in rubbishy soil probably helps too!

However, my rhodie's growing in neutral soil....

I don't have many flowers yet Jess. The cupanis do tend to get to flowering stage quicker than some of the others though.

Looking after an Aruncus

Astilbes are often known as False Goat's Beard because of the similarity. Just thought I'd throw that in 

I inherited one in the garden round the corner from here. It was in a southeast facing spot and in clay which never dried out thoroughly. I don't think it's a particularly popular plant nowadays, although I may be totally wrong about that.
