if I put jam tarts on mine, I'm pretty sure I'd find my other half sitting up there chomping away!

What a little ball of mischief Willow looks! Hope he is on the mend. I agree though, what kind of person outs barbed wire on a  bird table?? We have a pheasant that is always on our bird table. I dread to think what damage barbed wire could do to feathered friends, let along kitties or kiddies.

Sorry to hear that your Smudge is in kitty heaven Orchid. I bet Smudge is enjoying a big bowl on tuna with new kitty pals up there x

Hi friendly cat folk, in light of the sadly all too regular posts which suggest some awful and cruel methods of deterring our feline companions, I thought I'd revisit this much nicer and happier thread and say I hope all of your kitties are safe, happy and healthy...and don't have the misfortune of living next door to folk with cat issues!

Clematis

Hi folks, here's my Duchess of Edinburgh. I planted it adjacent to my rose which is Madam Alfred Carriere.  I understand that a white rose with a white clematis is a match made in heaven. I'm hoping they will grow well together and eventually cover the arch. Fingers and toes crossed!

Onions and potatoes

Nothing quite like the sound of happy and busy birds. Good for the soul to hear them I reckon. 

Ooh yes, I've seen lots of bees too. All different kinds. They must love the glorious yellow fields.  The scent is just gorgeous.  Hope it means that you get extra lovely honey!

I agree. It was glorious here today.  The birds are still chirping away now. Only just dark too.

Sorry to hear you've been ill Bookertoo. Hope on the mend quickly. 

Which ones did you go for? He's got some lovely varieties on his website. 

I sent off for an offer in the Telegraph. £5.99 postage and three free clematis. Well, they are teeny tiny and look very delicate. Doubt they'll be ready for a couple of years. Whereas I planted the Clematis Mans Duchess of Edinburgh out in the garden on Saturday as it was too big for the cold frame! I hope the weatherman is wrong with the talk of frosts!!

Chickens

Victoria Sponge, what a lovely chicken house! And what a lovely thing to do in making the extra effort with ex battery ones. Good on you.
