Old softie eddie

I once stopped a load of traffic when a hedgehog was in the middle,of the road.  I took him to one side and safely into the hedge.  Later I thought maybe he was going the other way.  

Lovely wonderful creatures

Busy guy.  I thought about a run this morning....tiring isnt it?  (actually used to love early morning run over the Towans and down to the beach and dive into the sea)

Any ideas why only a few carrots germinated?  Slugs n snails amongst those weeds?

Punkdoc, did you,mention cakes?

Fidgetbones, you need to report the intimidation to the police. Please do it.  You are likely to get more hassle if you dont.  

I spent 18 months fighting for my niece when an idiot boy racer hit her ...her brand new car was written off.  She had immediate ambulance service, hospital x rays and physiotherapy....and compensation.  His insurance co was slow to do anything and even tried to proclaim his innocence after he concocted a false alibi.  Fun n games but  we did bit detective work and won in the end.

You were injured, shaken and disrupted through no fault of your own and do not need further harassment.  The police will want to know and it will help your case for compensation.  Good luck fidgetbones

I think it is a double,whammy of sawfly and mildew.  I would prune to allow air into the cemtre of the bush.....good time now.....and give a generous feed,of fish blood and bone.  A winter wash in autumn, after new leaves have gone, will help too.
