What is this caterpillar?

Thanks Dave. I can't double check or take a better photo as he has disappeared! Either I or the local wildlife upset him!

When weeding and pruning around a honeysuckle, I found this beautiful caterpillar, which I had mistaken for a dry and crumpled leaf! I wondered if it was a Dot Moth, a friend has wondered whether it was a Peach Blossom Moth. Any ideas?

I usually use the branches pruned from the buddleia to form some type of support, as they are quite thick and tall, and it all gets hidden when the plants grow! It also then doesn't cost me anything! Good luck!

is it ok to feed birds ordinary suet rather the prepared bird suet you can buy

I use a brand called 'Suet to go', from Pets at Home. The ball has a greasy, soft feel to it, making it a bit messy to deal with, but the birds seem to love it! It is not hard and dry like most you buy; it has some 'give' to it, just like home-made ones. I have also bought suet to make my own, with dried fruit, bird peanuts and cheese in it - they didn't last long either!

Can anyone identify this plant? It came up where I planted some 'Rip Van Winkle' daffodils several years ago. Thanks.

Spindleberry Tree

I have a Spindleberry Tree, about 6 years old. Each year it produces masses of buds, a major proportion of which then fall off. Last year, I had 6 buds when autumn came! Does anyone else have a similar problem, and what have they managed to do about it?
