wow.. took some reading but glad it did.. super super pictures everyone..

wintersong.. your arty ones are gorgeous..  really love pictures of plants that are close up and personal.. and please do let us see yr paintings.. i have not painted for years.. used to do cartoons for the mags and papers.. but not for a long time now.

the warm weather is really bringing everything to life in the garden now.. everything starting to catch up.. thou i have not had many bees this year at all.. little concerned is it because everthing is running late?

i will endeavour to take soem more pics today and get them added soon. but keep adding love them

oh yes they do indeed.. i collct fir cones when out and about as the dont like going over those.. also seaweed .. just pop down the path to the beach and collect it once aweek.. that stops them..

must admit i was told of this way by a passerby who stopped to chat about gardens etc.. and they told me get seaweed.. its free.. and good for the soil and stops the slugs and it does.
