I agree,Fairygirl & co. I thought the same but felt that I was being baised as the double act of Monty& Nigel always bring a smile to my face. I have felt that Monty is very basic and down to earth.Especially the manner in which he dealt with his recent illness. He comes over as someone who is self effacing and happiest when he is in his bit of "paradise" with Nigel in tow.

He has no airs and graces, him apologising to Nigel reminded me of me saying sorry to plants when I accidently break a branch; but I am soppy anyway

AAhhhh......thank you walkiestime, I thought I was the only one who had missed him. I assumed that it was probably filmed when he was recuperating after hurting his back........poor baby.

Thank so much Daintiness and PeterE17.You have confirmed what I dreaded, I had "red leg" in the 1980's and I found bodies on the lawn. Unfortunately this time there were much more as the frog population had gradually increased.I hope they recover. Thank you again, I am truely blessed to have found this forum

I feel very sad reading this post, but I am glad of it and hope someone can help me.I have had a pond with fish for years but NEVER seen what I have seen in the last fortnight. I have had frogs having froglets every year and they have done well coexisting with the fish. Thery were about 15 in all(they used to bask in the sun on the rocks surrounding the pond and thery were babies in various sizes.I asume they were last years and this years' babies.But now, every morning there are up to 4 dead frogs by the pond. I am so upset, the fish are ok so far so it can't be the pond.I hope you will respond with ideas, thank you.

Fairygirl, I'm sure you are very proud of your baby. They do surprise us , don't they? The important point is if they are happy doing what they are doing you are entitled a BIG pat on your back! Who knows, we might see her on Tv some day eh?

Aah Fairygirl......I hope you are nurturing a zoologist or naturalist. It's amazing how much children absorb and emulate adults around them.

Aa Verdun, it is lovely, warm feeling to see forum members being nice to each other. Speaking of warm, time for another 'coffee and curl up on sofa' time here. Much needed rain ahead of promised 30C on Thursday......nice.

Are you getting your coat?

Hi KEF who mentioned AGE in the same breath as veteran then? By the way, I'm 16 going on 70, so there, the secrets' out now. Like Verdun, I'll get my coat.

On second thought, I'll make Nutcutlets or bake a cake. We are experiencing a monsoon here in Surrey.......VERY welcome, it's going to be 30C on Thursday.

I am a newbee too but feel so welcomed and I feel part of a very caring and protected  family who generously nurture us newbies,especially when an occasional hurtfull remark is made.There are certainly many,many, wise and generous people here.We are truely blessed.I wish I had found it years ago. I have tried other gardening forums but they were another version of Twitter!!  I salute the "veterans"...and you all know who you are.
