I'll try Runnybeak. You go into your account settings. On the top right of the page you can see, there's an down ward arrrow. Click on that and you'll see some options. Click on My Settings. This will take you to another page.

On the left hand side, you'll see the faceless T- shirt boy, click on Edit

On this page you will see Change your profile picture. You will have to click Browse. Then you can pick the picture you want. All the avators are small so too big an image wont work.

Do you have a pic in mind and is it on your pc?

Good for you fidget, at least those oak trees are safe. Does you neighbour own the land? Or has he got protected rights?

I'm in a different position to you I live within 40 acres of private land and the land owner is very big on conservation and wildlife

Hello, I'm a very untidy person/gardener so probably not the best person to advise. They grow off little corn type structures and over time the corns divide so you get more and then more plants grow from them. They can grow quite quick so next year you will have a much bigger patch of them.

I don't think dead heading would work on these plants, I think once the flowers are over that's it. I tend to leave mine for shelter for insects etc until the Spring and then I remove the dead leaves. I don't think it would hurt to cut them back now. I'm sure someone will be along to give better advice.

I don't think there are any basic questions, we are all learning all of the time

I moved last November so most of my favourites were still above ground fortunately.

I live in the real world but I do get sad when I hear of the loss of habitat, without nature as humans we are nothing.

I know that feeling Beaus Mum. I moved last Winter although I wanted to go, was really upset about  leaving the garden, there were tears. I move around a lot but what I have learnt is that once you've  made a garden you can do that anywhere. Your knowledge goes with you.

That didn't stop me digging up  a lot of plants and chucking them in pots and bags mind you. Amazingly most pulled through.

Dragonflies

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 20:43

Two great things happened today when I was putting the washing out I saw this huge dragonfly. I think it might have been an Emperor, it was really big and so colourful. It hovered about a bit around me, just checking me out and then flew off. Not ever seen one before, they are really big and so beautiful.

I saw it again, I think enlocked in an embrace with another, I take it they mate in the air?

I also had a tiny frog/toad land on my flipflop feet...........happy days
