What's this fatty?

Yep, the dreaded vine weevil.  It's not just the grubs you see but the embryonic ones ??ou can't see there.  Thoroughly check your begonias and then empty the soil onto a board, hard surface or bin liner and let the birds sIft through.  Don't be in a hurry to use that soil.  

I would water your remaining pots with vine weevil killer ASAP.  

Planting Decisions

Sara, what size is it?  Maybe "compartmentise" it into "rooms" with a pathway meandering to "visit" each room.  (instead of keeping to the squareness of the garden as it is now)

My winter heathers provide interest now.......promising colourful buds.....and for next few months into spring.  And, yes patty3,  bees do visit during mild spells in winter.

That's good news Dove.  94 is fantastic age.  My own mum is 91

On a lighter note.......I am partial to marshmallows myself.   But I guess they aren't the most easily  digested !

Health and safety have decided we cannot now hand out fresh food like bread, buns, eggs etc. at the foodbank.  I  guess they're right but what about meeeeeee?  Those cream buns were so good

Hey guys...stop it!  You're tempting me to spend money on a decent camera.  

Out of interest, the new Nokia mobile phone supposedly has 41 million pixels.  as an ignoramus, will this be a substitute for decent dedicated camera?
