He's happy Joyce, believe me.


Well he was happy yesterday when he grabbed my sons teddy from his room and took it on a sprint around the house, and he was definitely happy a few moments ago just before I caught him with his front paws up to the kitchen worktop with his face in my plate of leftover chips.

We are now fostering another unwanted labrador, this one is called Rolo, a 3yr old beauty. We are very tempted to keep this one as we have kind of fallen for him, but he does need a bit of training....

WHERE SHOULD I SITE NEST BOXES?

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 22:25

Ive had blue tits nest in a nest box on the north facing side of my shed, and blackbirds nest in a box on a south facing wall. Id like to know more about the best orientation/aspect of different birds nesting preferences.

I dug up quite a few plants and took them with me when we moved house, but I did tell the buyers in advance.

Nice present from your garden to you then Leadfarmer 


which persicaria is it, by the way?    I have a couple here that have been flowering since early June with no signs of them wanting to stop.  


Looks a lovely tramquil oasis there by the way 


See original post

 To be honest Verdun I'm not sure which variety it is. A local school was having an extension built over a planted border and they were happy for me to take a few plants rather than them being destroyed by the builders.


Along with the persicaria I saved some geraniums, giant scabious which I've grown many more from by collecting seed, and a lovely Ligularia przewalskii which sadly didn't reappear this year so I assume it is dead!

Just got back home from a 2 week holiday in the New Forest to find crocosmia and persicaria amplexicaulis are now in flower in my garden, with the sedum not far off..

I ride an R1200GSA and I love it. I use it every day, commuting to work regardless of weather. Heres a photo of me at Cadwell..


The birds are eating all my bird food!
