Sweet peas

For me at least the mice are only bothered about eating the seed but I have lost young plants to slugs and snails. If the plants were too wet they may have dampened off.

I'm glad it's not just me who wasn't keen on the winner. My better half is a keen photographer and we both love going to the mountains so we try to get to see this exhibition each year.

HI PANSYFACE, THERE ARE PLANS FOR THE EXHIBITION TO TOUR OTHER STATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FROM FEB TO JUNE NEXT YEAR. NO DETAILS RELEASED YET BUT MIGHT BE WORTH A LOOK TO SEE IF IT COMES NEAR YOU.


MY FAVOURITE WAS THE SCENE OF THE MOUNTAINS BEHIND BALLACHULISH BY ROBERT BIRKBY, ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.

For anybody who commutes into London via Waterloo it's worth popping up to the mezzanine floor to see the Landscape Photographer of The Year Exhibition.


It opened on Monday and free to view. I have to say I preferred many of the other exhibits to the one chosen as the winner.

Cow manure

Sorry Redwing but herbicide affecting manure isn't rare, my brother lost a lot of plants when he was given some manure that was affected this way. I don't think it's offensive to ask if the pasture has been treated, it would save a lot of hard work and hassle.

Another thing to consider is the use of herbicide on the pasture, I would politely enquire whether he treats his land with any form of herbicide that the cows then graze on. It passes through the cow and lies active in the manure. It will affect the growth/ germination on plants grown in it.

What is your weather like? (2)

The wind is only just reaching us here in West Kent, expected a wild and windy night but just a bit of rain. Hope everyone stays safe and doesn't suffer too much damage.

Beautiful morning, cold and crisp. Took the dog for a blast on the beach. Now it's chucking it down, think the storm that's forecast for the SE is on its way!

Shed problems - thoughts please

You could buy some old fashioned stink bombs, they still sell them, place them under a mat by the door. That would clear them out in no time but not leave a lasting smell for you.
