Bees are great, the more the merrier

Great pictures, I really enjoy seeing them.

Here's my toad that has taken up residence

 I first saw a toad, last Sept- he/she was tiny. Not sure if this the same one, if it is, it's grown a lot ! I've glimpsed it's head a few months ago but it shot into the grass as soon as it saw me coming. Today though he/she was out for ages- on closer inspection of the pond- there are loads of tadpoles. I figure that the toad is out there looking out for them.

I don't know anything about them- but very happy.

Does anyone know how long it takes tadpoles to grow into adults? What is their chances of survival?

I would definately get rid of the buttercup thing, it looks like what I have been battling with. Spreads everywhere, can choke everything and has very deep roots. Horrible things

I've got some of this  sprouting up in my garden. For me it's not a problem as it's a wildflower and I really like it.  So do some insects. I guess you could dig up what you have or use weed killer on it.

fox and cubs is another name it goes by

I would love to be able to save the really useful advice that I get from this forum in my scrapbook ,especially the advice I get about propagation  and cuttings.

At  the moment I can't access all my posts, apart from doing a search, which may or not bring up what I what want. I can only access page of 1 of so many. Many of my questions are asked in advance, as is the nature of gardening  and it would be great to be able to store these for future reference

Is this possible?

What's the weather like in your area?

I've seen & felt  the sun I've been in my garden in a vest t- shirt and flipflops.

Everything looks so much better with some sunshine
