I'd love to feed the birds, but I have two cats and a small garden so don't want to encourage them in. I don't see a lot of  the smaller birds but at this time of year I can hear them

It's been another mild winter here, think we've only had 1 or 2 hard frosts

Newbie here, bulb lover

I've been really happy with my layered pots this year, planted in last Autumn.

I think spraxis bulbs may still be out in the shops. I seem to remember them being a later flowering plant.  I've had them before but not hardy

Maybe it's just a good year for them. There's plenty of them to go around by the sound of things

Can you identify this please

Some sort of sedum? The growth and leaves look a bit similar

Thanks for the link Alan,lots of info there.  I think I'll try and get more hoverflies in the garden in the hope that that there's more of their  larvae about.

I've been saving bits and pieces for the bug house fidgetbones, so thanks

Nice pic pansyface, beautiful creatures. A bit too angry and aggressive for me though

English vs Spanish bluebells

I will do aym. Just been looking at the 2 different types that you have named. The butterfly one is more subtle than the suminagashi. I always think of that red when I hear acer. I don't tend to buy special soil/compost for anything so will give  them a bit more thought if I see one cheap enough

Thrilled to see ladybirds in the garden this year. I know they are liking the honesty and I have just sown some phacelia but that will be for next year.

I grow a lot of things for insects but have people any ideas of what other things they like, to eat or live on?  I've read that lacewings too like to eat aphids and greenfly

Wow Dove, frogs and a grass snake You've done such a good job with your pond. I can see why you can spend hours looking in to it. Very natural looking and brilliant photos too
