Windchimes

Posted: 30/12/2012 at 10:05

I have to say I hate wind chimes that are like doorbells gone wrong.My neighbour ,bless,has these annoying clanging tubes blowing about and disturbing the peace.He does not sit in  the garden and does not have his windows open to listen to the noise of it! I will have to admit to dislodging it one night (with a long pole) where it now lays forlorn  on the floor,he has not even noticed.

drought vs to much rain.

Posted: 30/12/2012 at 09:54

I think it was lack  of sunshine and sodden ground rotting some root vegetables,some of my plants did well because this was weather they liked others it was opposite.Now will I plant more drought resistant plants or swamp plants of the amazon.?Who ever is doing the rain dance please stop now.

Well if its not your dog(you can use tomato juice to stop this,that is what I have been told but how?do you make the dog drink it or do you pour it on the lawn) it might be local wildlife or a fungi ,hopefully not honeyfungus.

be careful not to disturb to much of the bottom pond life as Dragonfly larvae develop in the bottom (they take 7 years before they become a dragonfly)and most things hibernate in winter.

Toads are good for the garden as are frogs,they live out of the pond after mating time and mine live in the garage under shelves e.t.c. .They are lovely to listen to when the mating season starts along with the frogs.Toads walk as frogs hop.

Revive drowned Christmas tree

Posted: 28/12/2012 at 14:37

dont give up,I have a second Christmas tree I rescued and it loses its pine needles each year and renews them in the spring,let it dry out and then feed it in spring and water regurlary (if not bucketing down) and make sure drainage is OK.
