I grow wild teasel Alan(some people call them weeds!) and it is such a pleasure watching the gold finches performing acrobatics as they pick the seeds. They seem to be very gregarious, like the starlings and always arrive in groups of at least 6-7. The Jays still reign supreme, giving the squirrels a hard time competing for the peanuts! This year a pair of parakeets nested nearby and produced two young ones. They keep us alert with their loud chatter. Watching the wildlife does help to get through the bleak winter months......roll on spring

Soto is being very polite, I can think of stronger words. These people are PAID good money to monitor our environment. As it is, we are losing our green sites through indiscriminate encroachment on the  land.

Wildlife is suffering....i.e. hedgehogs, due to garden owners constructing 6' fences and concreting the gardens.

If we carry on losing our woods there will be nothing left of our "green and pleasant land." It takes a foreign visitor to remind us with a passing remark that our green sites are very precious.

Thank you GW and MD, what a treat, seeing Nigel for more than a second........and he performed the apple trick so effortlessly too. It makes the withdrawal symptoms a little less painful. Roll on 2013.

And yes, thanks too for an enjoyable series........any chance of extending it , pretty please

 Please could someone tell me the name of this small tree? It is deciduous with small white flowers in the summer. Then in autumn it produces these stunning blue berries nestling in purple calyxes. Thank you.

Hi Alan, your garden is so lovely. I have a similar arrangement as I wanted a "waterfall" instead of a fountain. I have planted a varigated bush behind the pump and it hides it so it all looks as if the water is flowing from a hidden source!(Bless). I think it is an Euronomus.Try a plant with year round interest and an evergreen. Your pond is going to develop nicely and look even more lovely next year. You clever young man....ENJOY.

Where is Nigel?

Shame on you Graemegarden,  behave, have you forgotten when you first started this gardening lark you were nurturing weed seedlings and digging up flower seedlings?

You could be discouraging the next AT !!
