Primrose

Posted: 04/09/2012 at 13:22

my native yellow british primroses have started flower in teh last few weeks.. think the wet and cold then warm weather of the last month has confused them..

 

i am sat here still praying for some rain for my garden as hard as concrete and my lawn is near on brown all over form lack of water.. water butts are nearly empty and desperately need some.. have not hda any for weeks and weeks..last lot was on a monday night start of schools hols.. and that only just filled the butts up..

LEYLANDII HEDGE REMOVAL

@sylviaf40409.. that is wierd.. when my new neighbours moved in they knew nothin about the dispute i had with my old neighbour over their falling down fence and the need to repair it to stop their dog coming over mine and messing on my lawn.

so they asked their solicitor who informed them that it is only notifiable if the police or courts have been involved.. other than that it is not classed as a reported dispute... if they did it on all arguements and disputes there would be pages and pages of paper work documenting them all...

so we will have to agree to disagree

@yes pigeons.. we have wood pigeons and we are fattening them up for when times are a bit tough for Sunday roast..

 

I am thinking you have grey squirrels over there.. here we only have red and they are not such a problem perhaps.. very shy creatures.. we are not allowed to do anything to hurt them or deter them.  I believe that greys are counted as vermin and cann be killed if a pest.. would have to check on that. We had a scare here otehr year when someone reported seeing a grey one in the woods.. a fullscale hunt was set out but nothing found.
