Thanks for your comments.

There's an area of old mine workings opposite the house that we bought quite cheaply a few years ago. They are always adders in a certain spot in the spring and I've put corrugated tin sheets down, they are quite often under there along with grass snakes.  I try to take photos in the morning  before they warm up as they are off  before I get the camera ready then it's a matter of getting as close as I dare.

Love everyone's photos. I'm a rubbish photogragher and I've only got a cheap digital camera. I just take photos to keep some sort of record of the garden and wildlife arround me.

Adders are not everyone's taste but I feel privileged to see them. I always keep the dog on the lead where they might be as we've had a few dogs  bitten this year.

Good morning all.

I'm glad they managed to see you Stacey. It's criminal that you have to wait two weeks for results.

How do you manage to keep sweetpeas going? They always give up on me in the middle of the summer and I do try to keep picking them.

Same here  Stacey. Good luck. Think nice thoughts about your garden next summer while you are in there.

Could it be a form of impatiens?

I daren't buy those tubs of sweets yet either. But really it's not our fault. We are not greedy or weak willed as, according to last week's paper, they have discovered it's a mental disorder if we can't resist chocolates or biscuits. So we can't help it.

I wonder why badgers have come so successful. You are right Woody that there are so many dead badgers on the roads now and have never seen a dead hedgehog for years. Although I certainly don't agree with it maybe badger baiting wiped out a lot of setts.

I hope I don't open a can of worms but sometimes fox hunting can be more humane than a fox being wounded by a shotgun and dying days later.  Hunting got rid of a lot of the weaker foxes and although it must be terrifying for them to be chased the end is swift. There are foxes round here with mange and that is a horrible disease. My dog was infected once and although he was soon cured the poor foxes aren't so lucky so it must be better for them to have a quick death.

I hope I haven't upset any one. I know you won't all agree with me.
