I live on the outskirts of Bristol not far from the N Somerset border. The garden was just grassed over when we moved in 19 years ago, with a large area of brambles at the bottom. It has been totally transformed to a garden full of shrubs and trees, a bit wild but thats how we like it. Having took voluntary redundancy at the end of last year I now have more time to spend pottering in my favourite place. Having just passed my last birthday starting with a 5, I am no youngster ( only in my head)

Have seen a few ladybirds but not many. Had a couple of butterfles flitting around today and have loads of bees.

Dean Lovett, I think your bug is a Shield bug. I have seen green ones and very dark ones but not that colour, but it looks the same. They dont cause any damage, so a friend.
Gardeningfantic I do not think there is a yellow cranesbill.
Bought two lillies today, one pink one yellow. Only went to Morrisons to get milk ! They were only ??1 each and look really healthy with lots of buds. Have planted them in pots

What's the weather like in your area?

Misty and drizzly this morning but humid. By 3pm sun came out and it was lovely. Out in the garden til 9pm, it was so warm still. Forecast not too good for tomorrow.

I get this every year with my honeysuckle. It starts off great, then like the pic above all the leaves start to fall and the dreaded mildew has struck again.
Will try the milk and water spray, not heard that one before, thanks for the tip. Good luck with yours Nik Zuk.

slugs and snails

I have had the same problem carolyn, nothing seems to stop them. I went out earlier just before it got dark and managed to slice a few of the slimy critters. With all this wet weather we are having things will only get worse. Nothing is safe from the little varmits !

Talkback: Feeding the birds

My brother fixed an old hanging basket (empy ) under his bird feeder to stop a lot of seed falling to the ground. Works a treat.
