who/what has been eating my Red Robin leaves?

Posted: 03/03/2015 at 17:19

Looks like Weevil damage to me. It's not likely to be frost, wind or fungal damage, the marks are definitely eaten. Snails can do this damage but they can also eat holes at the centre of leaves as well as the edges whilst weevils only go from the edges. Since it's this time of year, I would hazard one of these culprits or both

Clari, If Reggie wasn't growing then he's likely put on weight but since he's busy doing that, I expect all that food is being used to grow, a bit like teenagers with hollow legs

I think that makes sense although I'm  this afternoon so it could be complete nonsense

Took Flynn for his second walk of the day at 8am, perusing my garden for signs of life then the online shopping turned up (nothing missing for once) and I finished putting it away at 9.15! I think I broke the laws of physics getting it all in so now I'm chilling a bit, washing on, bathroom cleaned, washing on, beds made...puppy play date looming and OH has decided to paint the stairs we'll see how that ends up

Crocus and more Crocus And A Sprinkling Of Saxifrage but I have all my tulips showing through the pots now, and more alliums by the day coming through the soil. Buds on the Eremurus are stretching, Spirea goldflame is unfurling it's vivid spring foliage and the roses ofc. Clematis buds are woolly fat, I can see the flowerheads on my Euphorbias and the rosemary is laden.

Morning snuggers

Grotty wet here, OH missed the downpour by a whisker when he took Flynn out

What to do today? Have a whole morning free and puppy play date this afternoon.

Not sure gardening will be involved and going shopping at GC tomorrow with a car!

Go me!

T-shirt, long sleeve top, jumper, cardi, hoodie and scarf and a blanket over my knees and Flynn is giving me the tinkle-time stare
