That would be great Lyn, yes please. What do they like? I have had them in the past but they dwindled away.

I need to give them something better. I know my soil and garden better now so should be able to accommodate them with anything except permanent bog or acidity

 

Yes, I like a bit of pedantry Berghill, especially that one, far easier to spell

I tried to sign up. was asked for my password. No idea (as usual) so requested another and couldn't make it go. I'll have another try before the day.

Some of my usual winter visitors are absent, reed buntings for one.

Some of my fieldfares are redwings. I discovered that when one made a suicide bid into the window. How can I tell which is which when I have to give numbers of each?

and what is it? the light and shadow? that causes birds to keep hitting the windows at this time of year. They don't do it throughout the rest of the year

A good one for the New Year's Day flower count Mark.

I haven't got any of those

HELLO FORKERS!

New Years Day flower count Lyn. How many different plants have you got in flower on 1st January.

Very variable results here. lowest was none, all frosted off or under snow.

highest was 40+

I expect something in between this year.

Wildflowers count.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hi Gg, I'd just list violas. It's always cold out there  and trying to count each flower would take too long (for me)

OH has very strict rules for our count, flowers have to be  open enough to see the parts inside and not so frosted you can't see colour any more. I'm not allowed any form of cheating (as if I would  )

Plant ID please

Chamelaucium Edd, can't remember the species name, It was nearly an hour ago when I looked it up, my memory isn't that long

Plant ID please

Not my sort of plant Edd, sorry.

Looked at a few pics and thinking lily louise is probably right. Not seeing lamiaceae there.

Plant ID please

Is this from a bought bunch of flowers or the garden?

Egg dilemma?

If they smell OK they're OK Edd, omelettes for breakfast. Or dinner if you haven't eaten yet 

Need to replace what I think is box
