Not sure, but the first photo looking s like the creeping potentilla. It puts out runners and you will never get rid of it.

You could turn it into a standard, I had one given to me on Mothers Day and it is still full of flowers. Guess you would need to find a central stem, bit like doing fuchsias.

Slow worms and roe deer

What a beautiful photo. We get deer now and then on the park opposite us, mostly when they are looking for food in winter.

Got a surprise this week to find some highland cattle walking up the road along the pavement. Had 2 calves with them. They had been on the park (just a landscaped field really). On the other side of the road a ewe and 2 lambs were wandering up the verge wondering how to get back in the field.

Today I feel so happy....

Hey Greentooth, just checked out your location. Where is Breckland, that's a new one on me. If your're worried on privacy issue, I understand, just being nosey! I suppose I could look it up on google maps.

We love to answer questions, unfortunately I don't always know the answers.

What's eating my seedlings?!

I'd go with slugs too, that's how my wallflowers are looking at the moment!
