Dogwood Cuttings

Posted: 07/01/2013 at 18:22

when  its spring,i cut back the dog wood and use the sticks for supporting other plants,they tend to root and you will have lots off new plants.

what you find when out walking

I  found a toddler once at the edge of a country lane ,He let me pick him up and I went to the first cottage some way down the lane,(the lane was stony and ditches both sides) and the lady did not the toddler and we walked half a mile down the lane to a cottage where a car with a door was open in the drive way.The mother came out in total shock she thought he was still a sleep in the car seat,she burst into tears.I was glad to get the baby back to his mum but he could easily have disappeared into nowhere. 

Talkback: Black-headed gulls

Posted: 06/01/2013 at 15:03

here in Bristol the black headed gull lives on small island on the Severn and fly in when the weather is bad(or they are search of food since man pinches theirs)I forget the name of the island but its very small.They come to my shed when I leave bread for them and its gone in instant,they are splendid birds up close .We also get blackhead gulls that have been coming each winter to the common and to the lake but thier numbers are less with the increase of people in the area.

what you find when out walking

When you are walking or driving in the countryside its always pleasant to come across something rare or unusual .I have come cross dead foxes,badgers ,rabbits etc as well as live ones,especially in those quite corners of nowhere .We once were walking on a very hot day with the dogs a collie and a black lab up through a wood at up cerne,this was a few years ago,it was boiling and the grass was really dry,the time being midday in summer.We came across a badger making his way up embankment unaware we there,a little later we were crossing a field and I looked to the left at what I thought was a black post which my husband was pointing to, in hushed voice saying he had seen it move,with that the head turned the eyes yellow with slits. looked at us,(good job it was a little way off) I indicated we better move slowly but with haste out of sight into the lane ,make what you will but I think it might of been  a big cat and not your domestic feline type,and I haven't seen anything like it since.
