Cut some of them this evening to bring indoors for the first time and the smell is amazing. They do work as cut flowers. Looking forward to cutting the sweet rocket next year that I have been growing

It's very strange, I've seen ajuga in flower and the spring bulbs that have been sprouting I think are grape hyacinths.  Some of my primoses have small flowers on them. figrat-  bet that looks lovely but who would have thought it in Sept

HI Tim, Sounds like he will be fine to let him go, if your worried you could put a meal out for him too. For what is worth I think you did the right thing in drying/warming  him up before he gets put back out

ID help please

I have this growing wild outside my garden, thanks for the id- flowers are really pretty and I think they are good for birds as well.

What is this plant or weed?

A while ago I got some oxalis from a free T&M offer, I did some research on it and I only planted the bulbs in a large pot, I'm so pleased I did. I don't like them at all.  I would just apply weed killer to the leaves and try to kill it off.

I think there might be some truth in the wet hands approach to handling them. The reason I say this is when I kept tropical fish if you really had to take a fish out of it's water by hand, using wet hands prevented any damage. Having said that if I was being chased by a cat, I don't think I would mine a dry hand and then being released.

A friend of mine a while a go for some reason has an onslought of very tiny frogs/toads about the size of a 5 pence all over the house. She has cats, she just swept them up using a dust pan & brush. Never knew where they came from,

My cat would love to go up into the loft and get those mice
