Just looked it up Runny. I think it's a gatekeeper.

I hope your family's dog can be treated Lily. I think my daughter will change her vet after this. They certainly do know how to charge. The breeder's insurance had just run out a couple of days ago and she hadn't got round to taking another out. It's going to cost about £1,500 and I've told her I'll help with the cost but all be are concerned about is the pup.

Hi Runny I think the first photo is a butterfly not a month. Not sure of the name. I'll try and look it up.

Good afternoon all,

Glad your ordeal is nearly over Wonky.

I know we have lots of dog lovers on here. My daughter took her 14 week old bulldog puppy on the beach yesterday for the first time after her vaccinations kicked in. Unfortunately a labrador fell on her while they were playing and she has broken her front leg above the elbow. She is registered with Pets at Home vets and after xrays they said she couldn't be operated until tomorrow  because she couldn't have any more anesthetic. She was sent home with painkillers without it even being strapped up. I think it's scandlous. Their  website.  says 'we look after your pets like our own'. I'm sure they wouldn't leave their own dogs in so much pain for two days.I 've been to see her this morning and being a little wriggly puppy she doesn't realise it's going to hurt when she moves. I just hope she doesn't do any more damage until it can be treated.

Was only a thought Victoria. Sadly, although I didn't  think there was anything wrong with hearing, can't hear crickets now although my children can. Must be an age thing as I'm now 27 .

Could it be a cricket?  

Alan's new series

Posted: 25/06/2015 at 14:21

Apparently Alan has done a garden in our village near Perranporth but I don't know when it is to be broadcast.

There's a high fence round a very small garden and the tops of lollipop bay trees can just be seen over the fence. the team wanted to bring the plants etc. through next door's garden but he wouldn't allow them to. They had to hire a crane and managed to break some windows in the garage in the  process.

There was one on my sweet rocket about two weeks ago but haven't seen one since. Also some painted ladies butterflies. One looked very bedraggled as if it had over-wintered here.

Good morning all,

Beautiful day here. Must get out soon. Sweet rocket has been marvelous this year. will I get a second flush if I cut it down? Thrilled to see tiny flower buds on the brugmansia. I grew it from seed two years ago but it never flowered last year. 

Pippin is lovely. I think she has landed on her feet to have found a home with Mattie.

Lizzy, how long do new mums stay in hospital? They kick them out within hours in the UK.  When my first was born we had to stay in ten days and the second four days. I had my second at home as I didn't want to leave my daughter for four days.
