My first thought is a Sambucus of some sort but I am probably wrong

Lovely photos Gary and Chris

I phoned the surgery to make an appointment for my flu jab - I had a text message the other day  reminding me - was told I have to wait about 2 weeks as they have run out  

Horrid murky day here - I have put the washing on,cleared out a cupboard in the kitchen -things were starting to fall out when I opened the door  Just going to do a bit of ironing now

Was reminiscing about Wombles and spam fritters with one of my Sons at the weekend - now I fancy spam fritters for tea Haven't had spam for years

Good Morning Everyone

Even though I grow lots of Chillies I don't eat many - I just love growing them  I give most away  . Yesterday I made some roasted pepper and butternut squash soup - it was lovely  Delia's recipe using chicken,peppers,rice etc. is very good

I can't believe it is friday already- off to Sainsburys and Waitrose this morning.

Have a good day

Talkback: Leaf-cutter bees

Posted: 01/10/2012 at 06:35


I love watching Leaf Cutter bees  I always have one nesting in my greenhouse behind the wood with the plug on it and I have noticed some bees have been using my small bug box

I tried to take a photo of a leafcutter bee - if you look closely you may be able to see it
