Hi OL,

I'm further south than you but I've had my cosmos outside for a few days now hardening off so hopefully they'll be okay. Heavy rain now so might have to wait 'til tomorrow before they get planted out.

Lovely photo of the cranes BL. It was the noise that alerted me to them as I'd never heard anything like it before.

Good morning everyone,

I'm hoping to plant out some cosmos before the forcast rain but sky looking very dark.

Yesterday evening I heard some strange cries and thought it was a bird in distress but when I looked out two huge birds had just passed overhead and I'm sure they were common cranes. I googled their cries and that's what they sound like. I reported the sighting to the Cornwall birding site as I'd be interested to know if anyone else had seen them.

Good afternoon all,

Rain has just started here in Cornwall so chance to sit down. got the grass cut in time.

I've hatched a few chickens in an incubator. It's really exciting listerning to the cheeps before they hatch. The only trouble is 50% are going to be cockerels and they fight each other so unfortunately you have to get rid of them and no-one wants cockerels.

Hopefully it's not a magpie. I believe that when the chicks hatch the parents carry the eggshells away fro the nest.

Photos of your ponds please

I better go and cheque on Robbie, Dove, but he's a bit loopy already. I once caught him standing  in a trailer so he could reach the leaves on an ash tree.

The first bud on the waterlily. I hope Robbie doesn't get a taste for them.

My naughty shetland just finishing off the miniature bullrushes. I hope the dragonflies can find something else to climb up!

Hello all,

Yes it's been lovely today. I missed the last ****up so please can I come to the next one?

I saw a dreaded lily beetle today on the snaky heads. I've had lilies for years and never seen one before. I checked all the lilies that were coming but but didn't see any more. There are no gardens anywhere so I was hoping they'd never find me.

Glad your mum is better. Verdun. even if they are keeping her a bit longer.

Good morning everyone,

Lovely mornin and my mission for today is to dig a sweetpea trench and  put lots of rotted pony poo in. My sweetpeas have been in pots outside for over a week so it istime they are planted out.

I love Bishop's Children, Chicky. I'm not the most successful gardener but these dahlias were so easy from seed and did flower in the first year and made small tubers. They are still going strong after four years. I leave them in the garden and cover with some bracken in the winter.

Have a good day all.
