Morning all,

Hello Whiteheather.

Lovely yorkies, Jeanie. Is it possible to give us the recipe?

Poor Brumbull.

What a sad lonely person he must be. I'm glad most people understand that, especially Verdun with his Samaritan training.

I might be coming in for some flak but when some people were upset by him and started another forum they should have been mature enough to rise above him.

A hoopoe I caught on camera  about ten years ago.

I'm getting hoopoe too.

The bird theory might be right. A heron does visit the pond also crows for a bath. The two toads affected also looked really big so might have puffed up.

Verdun is too modest to post photos of his garden, Ashleigh.

Some branches were snapped off my camelia in the storms so I put them in a vase indoors and they've opened up. There's no sign of colour on the bush outside.

I don't know the name of this one but  I have 'Donation' too and a lovely double white.

Hi Fairy,

I hope 'stuff' gets sorted.

I've been out in the garden this afternoon spreading rotted horse poo about (or pony poo in my case). Ii's lovely to do things outside. I keep waiting for the cold frosty weather to arrive. Do you think we've escaped it this year?

Good morning all,

I'm bright and breezy this morning inspite of being a year older and I hope everyone else is feeling good too.

My intentions this morning is to cut down the cobaeas that have splawed over the border. I assumed they would be killed off in the winter but I suppose it hasn't been cold enough. Cutting them down might be the end of them but they only had a few flowers compared to the ammount of foliage so i won't be too upset.

The heavens have just opened and it was lovely and sunny earlier so I'll just have to have another cup of coffee before I venture out.

I've lots of toads laying spawn in my pond at the moment but I was really upset to see two large females with lots of males clinging on them that had burst open. One was already dead and had spawn and intestines coming out of its side. Has anyone else seen this and could it have been caused by the attentions of the males?

Thank for the greetings everyone.

I've not been arround lately, Mrs Garden because my brother and SIL have been staying while in between houses. Why the solicitors can't organise the exchanges on the same day I don't know. Just more expense putting furniture in storage for a few weeks.

It feels a bit more like spring. I saw two bumble bees this morning and the goldfish are up in the pond. The toads are also playing piggy back.

Good morning all,

I must be Kef's twin, it's my birthday too, although I am now 28.

Happy joint birthday Kef.
