I've got corragated tins in my rough area and photoed this grass snake today. It was very dull and it's eyes were cloudy so I think it's getting ready to shed it's skin.

Also took a photo of an adder today and posted that photo too.

I know snakes aren't everyone's cup of tea but I'm always thrilled to see them and took this photo about 50 yards from my house. Also took a photo of a grass snake today. I'll put that on the grass snake forum.

I might be wrong about Verd and Monty. I don't think Monty has a new pair of trousers. Would be spooky, though, if Verd's dog was a retriever.

Good morning all,

Have Verdun and Monty ever been seen together in the same room? It's strange that Verdun mentions plants that are then featured on GW. Last week  it was geums.

I'm a bit worried about Nigel. He always seems  to be lying down. Not normal for a young dog like him. It could be he's bored silly with the filming.

Have a good day all.

 

 

LEAVES YELLOW EVEN WHITE

Just looked on the RHS website about contaminated manure. Apparently some pastures are treated with aminopyralid which does no harm to the horses but passes through them into the manure.

Hi Lynne,

I believe there's been a problem with some manure bought from garden centres. It  may have mixed with straw that had been treated with weed killer when growing. It was suggested to try to sow some quick growing seeds such as lettuce to see if they germinate in the manure.

Need help identifying trees please

Hi Robert,

Could it be amelanchier? The berries are edible but the birds always get them first.

Good morning all,

Lovely and sunny here in Verdunland. Looking forward to going to the Royal Cornwall  Show on saturday.

I spent yesterday erecting a temporary rabbit proof fence. (just about 12ft long not hundreds of miles like the one in Australia) . The rabbits have been giving my plants a Chelsea Chop but hopefully once the plants have grown a bit I can remove the fence.

Thanks MMP. Max seems to be getting better so good luck at the vets tomorrow.

I quite agree with MMP about dogs. They are happier when they know their place in the pack.

This is my German Shepherd with his security blanket. He's nearly 11 now and according to the on-line dog age calculator that is 87 in human years.

How did you get on at the vets with Max's paw MMP?
