Well don't see that very often - heron walking along afootpath to get to its favourite fishing spot. Pond just outside the butchers. As ever no camera when needed.

Morning Forkers

Lay in bed this morning watching the fog Descend , clear, decend on Hills. Really interesting - better than Tv. Ever changing scene.

Will ahve to watch GW on iplayer as went tosleep during it. Often do, think it's MD voice!!

Back to rhubarb. AS bed for it is nowhere near finished - soil depth and quality- is it OK to pot small one that arrived yesterday into a larger poy, or prepare a small say 2ft square area for it and plant it now? Can do most flower stuff but total novice in veg/fruit stakes.

Back to Nigel Slater Kate - I just thought his garden/herbs looked too good to be true!

After trip to butcher - gardening. Now bright and sunny

What's the weather like in your area?

Up late here as been watching the Hills. Sunny above then a white bright fog covers them , they then slowly re appear out of the mists and then along comes the white ethereal fog and covers them again. Looks like it's going to be a lovely day. Sun above the hill fog

I have some 2 year old fruit trees on a cordon that have cropped a little this year. I do not understand what grease bands are. How essential they are.?
