Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

How lovely Chicky! Did you have a nice time? Any favourites from the day?


Great photos. Don't they look smashing! Really effective and a nice bit of structure. I hope ours get as full as that one day!

Help Save The Hedgehogs

Posted: 22/05/2016 at 21:56

Spotted a big one by the back door on Friday night. Not long after the cat came in and his head was covered in fleas! Never happened before. Took 2 hours to pick them all off followed by an application of flea killer. Is it likely that he sniffed at the hedgehog do you think? i know hedgehogs often have fleas; poor things. I wonder if it bothers them. Put some more food and water out, and locked the kitty in!

What is your weather like?

Despite forecast of cloud and showers, it was lovely and sunny all day here on the Notts / Lincs border. Spot on gardening weather.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

yep, re-arranging things in the greenhouse is obligatory for me everytime I go in there!


planted up one of my front borders. Hoping for a more coordinated look this year. Put in another bleeding heart - a huge one and it was only £4. 


emptied  of the cold frames. One more to go. 


got around to feeding all of my acid loving plants and topped them up with eracacious (spelling, sorry!) compost.


one water butt empty already. Eeek - wouldn't say no to a spot of rain!

Looks great Sophie!


Mine is starting to come out in flower. Quite slow but I like that as it means it lasts longer and is tempting me to have a look at it every day! Must remember to take another photo.
