I hope the mid-summer venue has some stones we can dance arround when we sacrifice Alan.

Ooooo can I come in spite of being AWOL. What is the dress code? Will a white sheet do? Haven't had a druid for a long time.

This is where you are all hiding. Thought you could get away from me eh!!!

In the middle of a storm here in Cornwall and I can't find my hatches to batten down.

Got to feed the chucks in a minute.' I may be gone  for some time'.

I have a broody one too. I put them in a separate shed and it usually does the trick but they do get distressed thinking they are leaving their  babies.

Good to catch up with your lives again.

KG and David lovely photos.

Winter you have some amazing plants.

Wow, Geoff, you did catch the sun,but it looks a bit like fake tan to me. Is that Cody beside you?I thought you left him at home. Sorry about the chicks. The foxes are even worse this time of year trying to feed their babies. I've lost so many in spite of doing everything  to keep them safe.

Sad news, Inkadog, but at least your friend knows what happened to her son, even more tragic,if possible,  if he was never found.

The sunshine has been lovely but even that has it's downside. There was no calling for food from the wren's nest in an outhouse and I thought they'd left the nest but they were all dead. then later this afternoon I saw a bluetit pulling a dead baby from the nestbox. Again no frantic calling from the nest and the parents have stopped visiting. The nestbox faced east but I can only put the failures of the two nests down to the heat.

Sorry you missed the eclipse, Inkadog. Hope your plants escape the attentions of the deer. The b****y rabbits have nibbled the first cosmos I planted out. I have plenty more so I'll try putting some hair combed from my dog round them. It works until the birds pinch it for their nests.

Sybille suggested bicarbonate of soda. My daughter heard that if you mix it with icing sugar the ants take that back to the nest and it kills them. I tried it in the conservatory and it seems to have worked, just the occasional ant now.

FloBear- Apart for the grubs doing damage the worst thing is when they blunder into your face in the middle of the night but they do look spectacular.

David- We were lucky to see a total eclipse in Cornwall in 1999. It was overcast but just at the last minute there was a break in the cloud. Unforgetable time. We had a big bonfire as the Chinese beleive it is a dragon eating the sun so light fires to scare it away. We weren't taking any chances that the sun would be eaten.

Did you see the eclipse, Inkadog?
