HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning again,

I wish  I hadn't put fish in my pond, Dove. Only six rescue goldfish were put in and now there are hundreds. It's a big pond and toads and dragonflies do well but the fish must eat a lot of creatures.

 It looks a bit bare at the moment not like this.

I've just heard on Radio Cornwall about the grenade on Gwithian beach,Verdun. I hope Spike didn't dig it up.

Good morning everyone,

Just watched your youtube link David. I like Carol but she has certainly changed her presenting style since then. Lovely to see Geoff H. too. Never realised they were on telly at the same time.

 

New perrenials... Should i protect?

Wasn't  Monty mixing garden soil with compost when potting plants up? He said that the plants would build strong root systems as the soil would have beneficial fungus. It seems to make sense.

Good morning all,

Officially the first day of spring.

Thanks for the kind comments about my camelias. I'm lucky to be able to grow them here although roses don't do well here.

I bought four clematis from Morrisons last year. I potted them up as they were quite small and planted them out in the autumn. Three of them are growing away. Last week I found Clematis Etoille Violette at Morrisons , again for only £2.00. I have been looking out for this one ever since someone posted a photo of their's, I think it was Bizzy Lizzy.

My mission for today is to dig up some clumps of daff that have gone  blind and plant them round the pond. I know it's not the time to do this, unlike snowdrops, but I've done it before and they are now flowering again. I'd never remember which were the blind ones if I left it 'til the 'right' time. Going to rain later so will have to get out soon.

Have a good day all.

 Hello everyone,

A few photos of my camelias. The white has always been in a pot since I bought it as a small twig. The red one was a bit bigger and planted straight out in the ground. They don't get any special attention although I make sure they are never dry in the summer as that's when the flowers for the following year are formed. The red one was hit by a fallen branch a few weeks ago and had the top broken but hasn't come to too much harm. The blue tits are really attracted to the red one. The bees aren't interested. The blue tits aren't harming the flowers just pecking in the centre. It seems to be the pollen they are after because I can't see any insects there.

Oh eck

My not very impressive photo of the basking shark I saw off Falmouth.

I've been lucky enought to see basking sharks on a boat trip out from Falmouth and a few years ago there were at least 12 swimming round in a circle just off Perranporth.

Orcas are occasionally seen on the crossing over to the Scillies.

I saw my first adder last week, Verdun. I know there not your favourite creatures but I love to see them. This one was only a baby. I've taken the camera back every day to try and get a photo but it hasn't re- appeared.

Good morning(just),

I think if Lydia the Great White shark tries to get Verdun's donuts, I know who will win Dove .

Photos of your ponds please

Another view taken at the same time. I've got lots of toad spawn now but never get any frog spawn.
