I prepare the soil before planting with blood fish and bone. I don't feed after that. They like a lot of water, but they are certainly getting that this year.

Bugs in Wheelie Bin

Fly maggots from rotting vegetation. Spraying the bin with  household fly spray should kill themm. Give it a huge squirt and shut the lid.

I know the nutters always claim that their God is on their side. I was reminded of this while perusing an auction site. A german WW2 belt buckle with (God is with us in german) on it. The men fighting the Germans also thought  that God was on their side. All Abrahamic faiths have a common starting point in a translation of the Old Testament.  Thou shalt not kill.

I had an argument with a catholic priest who was bought in in an attempt to convert me when I married my first husband. The Irish troubles were at the height. My brother in law was a catholic british soldier, who dared not visit family in Northern Ireland because it would make them a target.His mother sat glued to the news every night, hoping it was not a member of her family being blown up.One mans freedom fighter is another mans terrorist.Protestants versus Catholics. All supposedly Christian. Thou shalt not kill.

As  I said to the priest. If that is religion , you can stuff it.

A sad day for all peace loving people.

I caught the news just before midnight last night. I hardly slept.  It got worse, the figures came in, another gunman on the run, hostages in hotels. It seems total chaos.

All in the name of religion.

Look up coral spot on trees on the RHS website, and see if the picture there matches your red spots.

I've just picked 160 stems of sweet peas. Just waiting for them to be collected.

I've got raspberries to pick as well, but I daren't disappear back up the garden or I won't hear the knock on the front door.

I've been chopping down and shredding all day. I'm ready for a bath. I think it will be fish and chips for tea tonight.
