Crows and Magpies!!!

Hi Tracey5

Its kinda know your birds, the woodpigeons and crows in my garden like an easy life, and are quite happy to take food from my ground feeders. The Robin likes coming close to the house, so he/she gets mealworms in a dish outside the back door. The tits and house sparrows like getting in among the honeysuckle so I put the feeders in there for them. Being doing this for two years now and everyone seems happy,

Hi Laura

I have a Venus Fly Trap, they are quite reasonable to buy and easy to look after. Water with rain water and re-pot using Peat-Moss. They like full sun, hotter the better. I keep mine in the greenhouse on 'active service' But you can dot them around the garden in pots.

LOL thanks Clarington, I thought twerking was twitting at work. So glad I did not mention this during our early morning meeting. You can imagine it, during the AOB bit.

'Yes' I say, 'Why don't we allow twerking? This would be a good way of expressing our feelings to fellow co-workers!'

Hmm! defo a 'I'll get me coat' moment

This could be me talking here, I'm doing the same thing. The things that are different I can see is that 1. our boiler is in the garage so does not get damp or cold and 2. I have surrounded them with white card and polystyrene to reflect the light back on to the plants.

I just want to say how much I really enjoy chatting to you all in this forum.

I'm not a one for 'Twitter' or 'Facebook' and what on earth is 'Twerking'? But I have found this 'Chatroom', if that's the correct term, a great deal of fun and very informative.

Everyone offers such good advice and I feel I can ask the most obvious question and no-one makes fun of you. So I big thanks to everyone for making this so friendly
