That was lovely,Geoff but sad somehow.
Geoff, do they still have the walking races? I could just see you being good at that, especially if you could wear your speedos. But I must admit it looks harder than running.
Is that a Linford Christie tomato, Dean?
Hi I think it's definitely an earwig as Geoff says. They nibble dahlias but I don't know about strawberries.
My chickens were making a bit of fuss earlier so the dog and I had a walk round the fields to see if foxy loxy was about. I couldn't believe how many ripe blackberries there were so went back to get a container and have enough to make a blackberry sponge. They seem to get earlier every year.
Should dd get Sarah Brightman to sing 'Time to say goodbye'?
Thanks everyone for your comments.
Geoff kindly tried to explain how to upload photos through photobucket. I managed to do on the BBC site but not here. I'm useless with computors. So I was pleased when I was trying to place an advert and my file was too big, so after having a fiddle with the camera found I could make the photos smaller. Now I'll be boring you all to death with my photos.
Hope I've managed to upload a photo at last. I bought these begonias as plug plants but didn't expect them to do so well as they were tiny.
Hi Jean, sorry you're having a rough time at the moment. I think we worry more about our children when they are grown up than we ever did when they were still living at home. Things seem so much tougher now for them than we we were starting out in life.
I would be frightened to take my hands off the handle bars when I won a cycle race in case I fell off. Is that compulsory?
Hi Annie I mixed them dry in my conservatory and it seemed to work but outside you'd have to put it into some sort of container that the ants could get in but at the same time keeping the mixture from getting wet or washed away.
Hi Andrew, I think the ants on your lemon tree will be after aphids as they like the honey dew the aphids produce.
My daughter told me that a mixture of icing sugar and bicarbonate of soda kills ants as they take back to their nests.
