The Garden Party

I have a Bose sound dock and an Ipod. My brother has a juke box in the living room.

He acquired it as broken, and then spent I don't know how long taking it to bits and fixing it.  I suppose it's better than a motorbike in the lounge.

I must have a bedroom declutter before the new bed comes. It does however have four storage drawers which we never had before...

We had a new visitor today. A green woodpecker. Ist time visitor. We have had a greater spotted woodpecker for some time, but not the green. Not a brilliant photo. The blackbird sunbathes by the hedge.

How old are they?

what sort of aspect do they have?. I have blackcurrants in quite shady position, but they also do well in sun.

This is the time for pruning old wood out of blackcurrants, but if they are new then they shouldn't need much.

I would move any of them in the dormant season, after the leaves have dropped.

Seed saving

A lot of seeds need a winter frost or two before they will germinate. Sow fresh seed now in a cold frame, and they germinate next spring.
