Garden animal droppings

I would say a hedgehog that has been picking up seeds. I know they are supposed to eat slugs and worms, but our hedgehogs will eat any sunflower hearts on the floor, before progressing to the dog food.

Clarington, when you kick him up the bum, tell him about BACS clearing system. I dont know anyone who pays wages by cheque, it just gets transferred automatically from employers bank account to employees.  We're in the 21st century now, not the 20th. An emergency locum I did at the beginning of the month, was paid that night and in my bank next morning.

Rudbeckia seedlings

Slugs and snails like the seedlings, but are not keen on the larger hairy plants.

I use slug pellets on the benches in the greenhouse for seedlings, but  use slug pubs in the garden.

I've seen Yew cut back hard, it grows a new fuzzy layer in months. Yes it looks bad for a year or so.

If I can, I will try and persuade himself to have a run through to Harlow Carr on Sunday, as were almost there. It might depend on the weather though.

Big Garden Birdwatch 2016

Posted: 29/01/2016 at 11:01

I have been videoing the bird feeders this week, to make sure the video  camera is working properly before we go on holiday.  There seems to be a definite three feeding times, with the biggest between 12 and 2. Then they seem to have an afternoon nap before tea and bed. The wind has been playing havoc with the landings.

I wish I had red squirrels. I just have three fat greys, stuffing themselves on the blackbirds food.

Hubby was supposed to be having the week in SHetland, sailing back today. Fortunately the client kept on prevaricating as to what the job entailed, so he wouldn't do a quote, and he's now going in March instead. It just happens to be the week I am having the kitchen refitted, isnt that handy?

We're travelling up to Wetherby tomorrow for my brother-in-law s 60th.  

have a good day and keep safe, folks.
