Raining here in Bristol and more to come overnight so we have been told. Not a bad day overall at least the wind has dropped quite a bit. Had family here all day so done nothing in the garden again. Washing dried nice tho'. Have to go and put some plants in for mother-in-law tomorrow so here's hoping for a dry day.

Making a woodland garden

Lucky you for acquiring some more land. if it is woodland hopefully you would'nt get too much grass growing there. Is it quite shady ? As for getting a message to Monty I dont know. Wonder wether he logs on to this site !!! Good luck with the new garden.

June in Your Garden!

I have a Eucalyptus but not sure what one. It is not multi stemmed and grows huge, we have to keep getting a ladder up to chop it off. It is a lovely tree, the branches are very twisted and the bark peels. It too has lovely foliage and white flowers. I love it.

Can you help me ID this flowering plant?

Sparrowhawk dilemma

We get the odd sparrowhawk in our garden. Have yet to see it take a small bird only doves and wood pigeons. It is such a beautiful bird and like you say Obelixx, it has to feed too. I dont like to see it but thats the circle of life as my young grandaughter told me.

Same here. Rain rain and more rain and very windy. I can almost see the grass and the weeds growing. Why do slugs not eat my weeds ?

Flippin' pigeons

We have lots of wood pigeons too. Hopefully when the lastof our conifers comes down we wont have so many as they do nest in it. They are a real pest...and ugly too !

Will keep you informed about the freesias Shrinking Violet. I planted an Acanthus last year that I bought from a church sale. It has thrown up 4 flower buds and I was really pleased. Now I have read they are very invasive and hard to get rid of !! Anyone had any problems with these ?
