HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Yes, they hung around together, prettyface went missing for a bit and Grommit used to get mouthfuls of food and disappear and then come back. We think she was injured and he was feeding her, because when she reappeared after a week, she had a bit of a limp.

They dispersed at the end of the summer.  There was some work done in the wood next door, and the foxes have moved elsewhere but we still get transients through the garden.

A very nosy little fox, he let me pick him up and carry him around the house, all the while very curious about what is going on. His sister was always more wary.  usually with the foxes, we have to sit absolutely still when we watch them.

That's a fox cub  that I hand fed a few years ago.(2010) He used to come to call each night and take food out of my hand. As he got older he got more wary.

I think I have put this on before but if you havn't seen it.

Guernsey donkey, the Brugmansia is Brugmansia sanguinea... supposedly better for colder climates, but not as easy to propagate, i find, as Brugmansia candida.

The tree peony looks like P. lutea var.  ludlowii

I have evicted three snails from the greenhouse, and I've filled up all the slug pubs.

I turned the heating on. I hate being cold.

I have been sorting out paperwork for most of today. I suppose I had better check on the greenhouse, as it's been raining all day I have not touched it.

I've never needed to stake phlox.They are one of the few plants that  don't flop in my garden.

I agree on both with Nut. I have Dixter and Fireglow, and the difference between them is negligable.
