, Thanks Geoff for the advice about the photos. I'll have a go. I just about managed to upload photos on the BBC site.

It must be frustrating waiting for parcels. My porch is always open so most drivers leave parcels in there for me or my son who lives next door.

Talking of parcels I sent for some dried lavender to make pillows etc. It arrived within a day from Amazon and I made a pillow yesterday. Lovely to wake up to the smell of lavender this morning..

Good morning all,

Another popper-inner here. Still raining on the Cornish Riviera. (I hope Kate is okay)

I saw a blackcap eating the last of the red currants,Jo. The blackbirds had the rest but thankfully they seem to leave the blackcurrants and raspberries alone.

Not many butterflies this year but I've seen glow worms and a lovely big grass snake under a sheet of corrugated tin. I managed to take a photo of the snake.When I've tried to put photos on here I get a message to say my file is too big. Do I need to go on a diet?

Hi Jo,

Hope you are doing okay. My daughter told me to mix icing sugar with bicarbonate of soda and the ants take back to their nests and it kills them off. I've tried it and don't seem to have too many this year.

Is it a hawk to scare the seagulls away? Can you get them on Amazon? I hope MI5 and MI6 don't monitor this or they might have you in for questioning,Geoff, if you order a machine gun.

Talkback: How to water hanging baskets

Posted: 05/07/2012 at 08:54

I buy the cheapest pack of disposable nappies and when planting up the baskets I split open a nappy and put one in the bottom of the basket. They hold a good deal of water and works even better than the water retaining crystals

You should have sneaked Kevin into Heligan, smallswan. He would have loved it there.

Heligan is my favourite garden. As you say, even if you are not really into gardening  there,s lots to interest most people. I love the glimpses into way the garden was run when they had teams of gardeners in the big houses.

Not unless you can weave a wicker man.
