NYD flower count 2015

But it's not New Year's Day yet! Wait for it.....

I won't have much as my garden is still covered in snow!

Wild Flower Identification Needed.

That's very unlikely to be found in woodland, though.

I've been impressed by my Grubs Boots, which are similar to MuckBoots. They are easy to get on and off, keep my feet warm, haven't leaked yet and are purple! I used to buy cheap ones, but they didn't even last one season as a rule (I wear them every day).

If you pull off all the brown bits, you should be left with a cone shape in the middle - a bit like a strawberry hull. That's if it is Echinacea, but I agree that it's an unlikely place to find them.

I don't suppose it could possibly be a Burdock??

No, it isn't knapweed. Looks more like a member of the onion family to me.

You could try the Wolf RS2500. They are quite small, so fit my hands, and the slider for the lock is stiff so that I don't move it accidentally.

Mole hills

Posted: 09/12/2014 at 12:27

Moles can be a serious problem. I reseeded a large patch in the paddock in the autumn, the grass was growing well when Mr Mole discovered it. The patch looks like the surface of the moon now! I did buy some mole traps, but haven't had the heart to set them up - yet!!!

Kindle e readers

The Kindle Fire is a tablet, I love it and use it all the time. It's also much cheaper than the Apple offering. For reading, it's full colour, you can change the size of the font and enlarge pictures. You can also read and annotate PDF documents. You can get all the usual apps as well. The battery life seems very good.

Washing fleece

I've machine-washed some pieces, they did go a bit fluffy in places but held together. Some kinds are much stronger than others, I've found. I'd give it a go, on a gentle programme.

Are these damsons or sloes please?

Posted: 02/12/2014 at 13:28

Damsons are always cultivated, although you might find them deliberately planted in hedgerows. Bullace are more the size of the marbles that I used to play with, around 20 mm, the sloes are smaller than that (8 - 15 mm, usually not more than 10 mm). Any will do with the gin!
