One identifier is the white "dogcollar" clearly evident here.

Went for a stroll around a nearby disused aerodrome near where I live today and came across this little fella...

 First time Ive ever seen one in the flesh. Someone had placed some pieces of metal corrugated roofing panels in the grass, and I know snakes like to hide under them.

 

Best Compost 2013

JAB with added JI is better than plain JAB which is very poor this year.

True. Ive had to mix my JAB with other compost, just to make it useable.

I recently picked up some bags of JAB which I have been impressed with in previous years. However when opening the bags it contains the worst compost I've ever seen. And it smells awful. I'm not even sure it's worthy of spreading on my borders.

Sorry it wasnt as good as expected. I really dont think I'll be going again to a GW Live show, they do seem to be a bit of a let down lately dont they.

The one in 2009 was quite good and I ended up coming home with a new greenhouse! But last years was poor, even the GF Show was bad. Seems they are really going down hill.

What did you do in your garden today?

Potted on 30+ sunflowers, most of them kindly given to me as seeds from Lilylouise.

I was on my hands & knees crawling through the borders pulling them out. Then of course you find a stray bramble, and a nettle....
