Unwelcome garden visitors

An air gun pellet above their heads will see off Magpies, they are very clever and quick to learn. I remember getting plagued with crows once, it worked for those too.I hate to see them ripping the fleglings apart after all the efforts from the parent birds.

I know they have to eat, but there's plenty of forests, fields and hedgerows they can go.

You're welcome to some of our rain Pat. ( Morning by the way ) Hubby was talking to a chap earlier, late 60s, Devon born and bred, lived here all his life and said he's never known a winter where it just rained and rained and rained.

I want to get stuff dug up , but the ground is so waterlogged , I daren't walk on it.

1000 messages already Dove.

Ask him about the one not so long ago when it rained through the winter for 100 days without stopping.  Can't remember if it was 99 or 2000. It was always warm and wet around that time, this is nothing new here.

Canes wouldn't be strong enough here, I grow my beans in one long row, using  4 x4" wood stakes either end and scaffold poles in the middle. Sheep wire across the lot. But then I only grow 50 plants.

Clay ones are nice but need much more watering.

I don't put hydrangeas in pots, they prefer to romp away in the garden, but it's up to you as long as you keep watering them.

They're mine Dove and I was wondering that myself.  No idea why pictures have suddenly turned turtle again.   

Do you take your upside down photos on your iPad Runny?
