 Thought I would share this picture as it's so lovely! Not one of mine unfortunately but it's been my screensaver for quite some time now.

dog bite,anyone know for sure?

Gran, thank you for your concern. He is out of the woods with this injury and we were quite worried for some time. He does have health issues to begin with and these were only exacerbated with the dog incident.

Despite CCTV footage the police have been unable to find these people. You would think that after a lifetime of hard work you would be able to enjoy retirement and do a wee bit of gardening without being attacked on your own property!

 

We are a family of dog lovers and my Mam and Stepdad have not long lost their beloved pet. We can only hope this type of incident doesn't happen again with the same animal/owners, particularly the vulnerable.

Thank you again.

I would just like to say something regarding these innocent "doggies" that have been mentioned

My stepfather who is in his 70's was cutting his hedge recently when some people taking a walk stopped to say hello. Their "doggie" rottweiler attacked my stepfather without any provocation and bit his arm down to the bone.

He dashed inside to call my Mam and get assistance. The people did a runner with their "doggie". My stepfather spent several days in hospital and nearly died from blood poisoning. Unfortunately the police haven't caught up with them.

I only hope these people don't suffer the same fate and they keep their "doggie" away from human beings in future.

I have a yearly reminder of this also as it happened on my first birthday. A terrible tragedy which shouldn't have happened.

Tree problem

Just had a look and it is most definitely Sophora Japonica. The slight curl on the leaf and the nature of the pod match nicely. I wouldn't care, I was just reading up on Mycrophilla "Sun King" just the other day although it is quite different.

Didn't think it was a Robinia or Gleditsia!

It's mainly the species of Gleditsia that have thorns. Most of the new varieties are thornless. However I don't think this is a Gleditsia. The leaves although similar are arranged differently and the pods are not Gleditsia. Definitely not a Robinia as the leaves are more ovate. Not that I recognise it as anything else though. Good luck with your search and diagnosis.

Crocuses

We planted ours by drilling the lawn!

We just threw them in drifts for the natural look and then using a cordless drill and a 25mm wood auger bit drilled a hole where they landed. As Mike said double their depth to size of bulb.

The holes were top dressed with a mixture of compost and sharp sand which was brushed in. A scattering of grass seed afterwards to cover.

It's not as time consuming as it sounds and the crocuses have come up year after year without fail.

We did get some funny looks from the neighbours though when doing the drilling!

Rude but funny.

I hate to stick my beak in again.

Here's something I just whisked up although I do feel a bit over-easy about it.

I shouldn't beat myself up about it really but I might be setting a bad eggsample.

Groan!

Rude but funny.

It looks like some people have been given free range to tell jokes on here?

It's a half dozen of one and six of the other really!

I'll get me coop..............!
