Love the moth. Cruella de Vil could make a coat with a few of those.

The pineapple was grown in the conservatory, Becks. It's a few years ago now but I seem to remember it took a few to produce a pineapple.

I've bought a ticket for the Euro Lottery tonight so send in your wish lists everyone.

Poor Geoff

Becks, good luck with growing a pineapple. If you pull the lowere leaves off underneath there should be some small nobbly bits that will be the roots. I'm boasting but I grow one and actually had a pineapple. It was a lot smaller than the original but  a lovely fresh taste.

I haven't seen any swallows for a few days but there are dozens swooping about over the pond just now.  I assume they are from further afield just making a pit stop before continuing their journey

That's tea sorted then.

Sage _ Why Can't I grow it?

They say sage only grows where the woman rules the household. 

What's the weather like in your area?

Hope you are okay, Frank. It seems to have been bad up your way.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is feeling better today.

Lovely photo Pam and like your moth Jean.

This photo was taken two days ago. Ivy is a bit of a 'marmite' plant but brilliant for wildlife. Still a lot of Red Admirals about but not a good year for butterflies. The ivy is covered with honey bees when the sun comes out. 

Geoff, I hope that photo was before your visit to the dentist.

Oooh, Kate. Isn't mahonia a bit spiky? But kill or cure, that's what I say.

Like your moth, Jean. He looks as though he's waving.

I haven't started feeding the birds yet. I had a nuthatch visit last winter. I had to look it up to see what it was. Lovely bird. Black sunflower seeds is what it liked. I find birds are getting fussy and are not so keen on peanuts. I fill one feeder with sunflower seeds and the other with the chicken's mixed corn.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is okay with all this rain. not too bad here just the odd heavy shower that waits until I take the dog out.

So sorry about Lydia Rain.

Hope you are better now Hollie. I didn't know that cats get PMT.

Geoff, are you still suffering from something you picked up in Amsterdam?   

Lovely photo, Pam

My nickname at school was 'Spammy'  but it wasn't me, honest. I missed the posts, what were they selling? Have I missed a bargain? 

Glad you are okay, Inka. Really scarey.

Good morning all,

Poor Becks. I hope Jess is feeling better.

My OH once had some maggots in the boot of the car and they got out of the container. (for fishing)  Later on the car was filled with horrible bluebottles for weeks on end.

Has Michael Fish from Soton given a long range forcast yet? I think I might start taking the geranioms and begonias in. They are still looking good but there are some cold nightd forcast.
