Take care where you put the mouse traps

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 09:55

We had a blackbird caught in a mousetrap yesterday. Not one of ours, they're all inside sheds and are all still there.

OH managed to net it when it got caught up in a bush. He got the trap off but I fear it won't survive, there was blood on the trap. 

Just be careful where you put these things

Sparrows were always blamed for this years ago. Have you got sparrows.

I have no sparrows are my primroses are intact. I know that proves nothing

Mine look like Rhod's, maybe a little bigger, hard to tell amongst the weeds

Pronounciation

I find them a lot easier than remembering which of the common names belongs to which plant. 

I prefer 'binomial system'. Two names, genus and species, variety or cultivar added when  appropriate. Can't go wrong and no need to justify all those words that aren't Latin.

I don't think there can be one JB8, I've heard many 'experts' talking about plants using some very different pronunciations. 

I have heard the word Ribes as rybes, (one syllable), ribees, reebs and reebees.  

 

Foxglove cuttings - anyone tried it?

They'll be OK primrose. Quite big really. They'll grow on quicker in new compost

Plant ID please

I think that's what it is. They're in those winter container mixes you find in GCs.
