My hedgehog does a great job of sweeping up all the sunflower seeds that the birds drop. Best place to see him / her as it gets dusk under feeders. Then it's down the path for a drink of fresh water and then a tramp on my aubrietta

AWB  hope your's doesn't peck you

Thanks Panda  I'm now chilled I think, hope no nightmares. I once went to put something in a waste bin and a huge great black crow thing flew out and brushed past me, I 've not been right since  That and as a kid on shoe cleaning duty down the cellar I missed on the way down 2 pheasants hanging on a clothes horse to mature, scared to death to come back up past them.

How do people with big garden's cope?

 I've got one a 1/6 of the size of one person's I've visited and I'm yet again tired, been hoeing, moving netting, weeding, watering pots and had a trauma  Went to neighbour's to close GH a bit as cool and rain and 3 blinking magpies in there. No scary face smiley ..I'm not good with big birds unless I put them in the oven.

They were flapping about I stood back and two adults ?came out and slightly smaller one going nuts amongst the toms I couldn't get behind GH to scare it out the front then it got behind inside netting used as shading..I fess up I had to shout Under Gardener who went in untangled it and got it out. I hope they are as smart as they and don't go in again.

I need Ice cream or a vino

chaz, I might be wrong but if the leaves are aphid free and look healthy and green I was told years ago that it is a good sign. However a lot of what we did and understood years ago isn't spot on, so I'm sure someone else will will add to your post

Hi Stacey glad to hear that all is well

Verdun didn't think you were English thought you were Cornish  

Just eaten bacon and mushrooms so I'd better go and burn it off.

See you all later
