Good afternoon all,

Hope those who are a bit down are feeling better.

Not doing any gardening today as going to wedding and trying to keep my nails looking halfway decent and I'm having a manicure later today.

Dove and Chicky, I think that bracken has been linked to stomach cancer in cattle but I 'm more worried about the odd tick that might be lurking in it although probably only where there are sheep or deer.

Good luck  with the dentist Rosemummy.

My granddaughter (how can I have a granddaughter when I'm only 27) is having her braces off today. She's had them for 2 years and has put up with a lot, mouth ulcers and sly comments from boys at school which nocked her confidence. Her teeth are beautiful and straight now and all she wants today is an apple that she's not been able to eat.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is well.

Gone back to bed with a coffee and having a catch up on here.

I'm going to my nephew's wedding in Surrey at the weekend. It's quite a posh affair and the reception is being held at The Surrey Polo Club. It will be nice to dress up for a change but I hope I don't fall off my high heels. I'm not used to wearing them now. I used to live in them at one time. I'll feel like the 'Country Mouse' going up to the big city.

There was a rumour at one time that Verdun was Monty Don as when he talked about something it was always mentioned on GW the following week but I never suspected he was 'the dike of Gloucester'.

Yes Cornwall were the better team. Lancashire did score more points but Cornwall still won.

Good morning everyone,

Cornwall is empty today as everyone has gone to Twickenham to watch Cornwall beat Lancashire in the rugby county finals.

Verdun you could have been introduced to the Duke of Gloucester at the foodbank but your mum is the main priority. (when can I divide my giant oat plants, please? they've been in ten years and are masive now)

Slugs.. sod the organic approach I just want them dead!

Apart from eating our plants some slugs and snails carry lungworm which can infect dogs if they eat them. A dog near me died a few years ago before he was diagnosed.

I agree with Dove. I've fed the birds all winter and even now have fat balls (hope I don't get banned) in the feeders. The birds are thanking me now by eating all the nasties.

There's also a family of thrushes so not too many slugs and snails.

I never see many ladybirds. Perhaps there's not much left for them to feed on.

Tiny white insects in greenhouse

French marigolds planted in the greenhouse worked for me Lavender Lady. I think to be effective they have to be planted in the soil that the plants are growing in.

Photos of your ponds please
