This is Mr Sydney. We adopted him from the Cats Protection League almost two years ago. He's about 9 years old and is partially sighted and just adorable.


We didn't hear him meow for quite a while. He has certainly found his voice now!  He has become such a character and has us wrapped around his little paws! We love him to bits.

Courgettes - anyone put theirs out yet?

I hope they'll be more little seedlings waiting for you Zoomer. 


i spotted some for sale in a local garden centre so if all else fails you could still maybe buy some...but I know it's not quite as satisfying as growing your own from seed. 


I've only ever had a bumper crop once when I lived in London and sowed them into a patch at the end of the garden. Had loads that year.  I've had success with them since but never as good as that year.  I'm told that consistent watering is the trick.

What was the winning name for the sweet pea competition

Nope but was just talking about this today! Would be good to know which name was chosen.

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!
