No rain so far today. Quite windy but dry and sunny. Will definately sort out compost bin today.Forcast for weekend is the same. Hope to get to allotment on sunday i daresay the weeds will have grown again. Why is it that weeds grow so much faster than the veg?

Looks like a honey bee to me. Has anybody see a bee fly? I dont mean flying. Saw 1 in the garden and was totally mystified luckily th RHS magazine had an aricle on them. They really look like a cross between the two and of course didnt have the camera or phone to take a picture.

Have tried the cat flap with the microchip was ok until i got Lennie, talk about paranoid last time i took him to vet ended up gettting bitten. Not good. Pleased to say no mice yet this week but it is only Monday. My Mum used to have a dog and kept the dog food in cupboard under the stairs, she ended up with very fat mice. Ended up calling pest control in he came disguised as the dog warden. the mice were coming in through the air brick. She is now mouse free.

We occasionally get rats at the allotment when this happens the council get involved and put down poison. Not at all nice. think i can cope with mice better than rats. My cat Lennie decided to bring in frogs now, have you ever heard them squeal? and why does he have to do this in the middle of the night. The pleasures of having animals, i wouldnt be without them
