Base heat...........I have a heated mat that I got from the pet shop that has just assisted Komatsuna seeds to appear in 4 days.  Is that what you mean

The conservatory does suffer from the sun only really shining in from early morning to just after mid day as the garden faces East

I do a 6 mile walk every Monday and Thursday and there is usually a Robin sitting in a hedge in a lane by my allotment

I swear he looks at his watch and notes if I am late or not !!

If I am clinically insane its a lovely place to be

I am ordering a bird bath to place near my conservatory window so I can get my daily bird fix

Great photos from you both

"Apparently " Robins used to follow pigs or men when they were digging up truffles. Not sure if this has any validity though

They just seem to be on a par with us humans and may it always be so

On a sad note I had a field mouse who visited my garden and I left a bucket out over night and "Rocky" fell in and drowned in the water

I buried him in the garden and under a stone so he could not be dug up

That night I dreamt he burst out of the soil and came after me!!
