Morning all,

Patchy blue skies here,rain during the night and lightening for about an hour,but only heard one clap of thunder.

We have a Hummingbird Hawk Moth caterpillar on our small Kilmarnock Willow,it is huge !,have never seen one before,have double checked in books and internet just to make sure that is what it is.Hardly any leaves left on top section of tree,it has an enormous appetite.

Well done Joyce,

Weekly sweeping is unusual,we get monthly sweeping here.

Had to complain to the Council recently though as the sweeper did not use the water suppression unit and it belched dust everywhere,it was a hot day and came in through the windows which were covered in dust as were the cars.

Have both the above recommendations Aimee,both of them are excellant choices,

The Dr Hessayon series of books allow you to buy the ones that apply to the type of gardening you are doing,flowers ,shrubs,containers etc,and I would probably start with these as they have good problem spotting sections.

Evening all ( note subtle joke for Verdun in view of his recently disclosed criminal status  )

No rain at all today until the last 15 minutes,it has been warm and sunny,I was forced to abandon planned HW and go out into the garden .

No GW tonight so watch this
