Been outside for a mooch in my dressing gown after watching the dawn chorus programme, was very informative.
It's still gusty out but nothing broken, just a couple of flappy bits. Birds were waiting for their breakfast, the starlings formed a queue in the tree canopy waiting with their beady eyes on me and started advertising the free food to their mates as soon as I was done. Some happy baby birds this morning
Checked known plants for slug damage, took about 7 from one iris last night and this morning, newly planted Liatris are also struggling whilst the older clump is untouched must be all that leafy growth they put on early. Also more clematis buds popping, one Miss Bateman cutting that I took last year is already a decent sized plant, guess I should be pruning it really, also got my prize Rebecca just about to show me what all the fuss is about
Have a great day
