Well, the weathermen were right. It's now chucking it down and blowing a gale, again. 

I've been in the hot tunnel keeping out of it and have stopped to make Hubby a cuppa as he returns home from the shop.

"......never seen such a bunch of inadequate self obsessed no-hopers. "

Well, not since the last series? and the one before that? and the one before that?.......

To be fair, I can't imagine why anyone would want to work with Alan Sugar. Loathsome little man.

I guess the residues form such a tiny proportion of the overall mix it can't do much harm.

Punkdoc. It's not just doctors, look at policemen too and teachers!!

They all look like they should have notes from their mums to be out alone.

Seriously though. I'm glad you've seen the Doc.

Morning all. 

Hosta Hugs for LP. 

Pat says" Yippee! We’ve got rain."  That's a level of enthusiasm rarely seen for rain in these parts.

I'm sure hogs are more likely to die from being hit by a car than from slug pellet residual poisoning.

Can anyone produce  evidence that hedgehogs actually eat slugs which have died from slug pellet ingestion?

I do occasionally use slug pellets and I have nightly visits from a number of hedgehogs.

I do prefer the snip of a pair of scissors to slug pellets though.

Can any one identify this tree…
