HELLO FORKERS!

Hi all, been pottering around a lot today

Got quite hot in the greenhouse at one point but the showers have started now.

Managed to repot some of my Dahlias into their final patio pots, kept in the greenhouse for the meanwhile though.

Also managed to pot on some 20 Zinnia Plants into their final pots before they go out into the garden in about a month or so

Strange thing Dove is that he left it there 

It was a pretty big caterpillar mind you! :P

Haha I like the idea of Hide and Seek. Though I guess they are picking up insects too, I spotted him throwing a green caterpillar about underneath a big Lavender bush :P

Strange he didnt eat it though, my bird food must be more appetizing!

I have a pair of Sparrows I think are nesting at the back of my garden, they seem to wander round the garden in circles, anyone know what they are doing?

Also blue tits pecking at my Lavender? all seems a bit funny 

What have I got here

I guess I stand corrected

I've rescued it so that at least it comes back well again next year! Would be nothing worse than the whole plant snapping and dying on me due to a lack of photosynthesis 

Hopefully the bumblebees can enjoy whats left of it more than I can

Came home to a wind damaged Dicentra today

About 3 of the stems had been ripped out by the wind which has come out of nowhere 

Managed to prop it up to a certain extent and move it to a more sheltered spot so it doesnt look so bad

 It looks better in the flesh, its just that the wind is so relentless

Thats a cheap Marguerite Tray , although you may have gone a bit overboard with those slug pellets.
