Son messaged us yesterday and we now have 52 bags in arrears. Came home from holiday today, and he has collected and cut some wood and collected some more, so with any luck we can get going tomorrow b ...

I like valerian when it grows with all three colours together in a big drift; the white, pink and red look lovely together. There was also a fair bit of vipers bugloss, which is interesting colouring.

That looked bad Jam Lady, so hope you don't have any repeats. I have heard of the Delaware river and know it is pretty big.

Gregotyn, some of the ash might be ideal for tool handles. Before we tur ...

Good fines and under the circumstances, good photos Buzzy.

We went to our bee orchid site yesterday and were rather disappointed as we only found 3. Usually we find if not hundreds, enough to make ...

I think it is this property of molybdenum sulphide that has just been discovered, or does this just happen when mixed with titanium dioxide? A bit short on fact, and as you say Dpack, needs a lot more ...

Lucky you missed the thunderstorm then Jam Lady. Are you very prone to flooding? I thought you were on a hill, but the area round you might be low lying of course. It is hot and hazy here with very li ...

There will be at least one inquest, probably a series of them, as one has to be held for any unexplained death. It won't cause any prosecution though, as even if an 'unlawful killing' is proved, it is ...

That house sounds amazing Cassandra. They are fortunate to be able to keep it up themselves; most here get turned into flats, or hotels if in a suitable place.

I think the repercussions of the Lon ...

It does depend on the size of the dumpy sack Gregotyn. 80 for a full cu m isn't bad, but a cu yd, or 1 ton sand dumpy sack is about 50-60.

Down here work has already started on silage and hay ma ...

We are probably more expensive than round your way Gregotyn, but we are selling a cu yd. dumpy sack for 60. That is what we call a half load. A cu m dumpy sack would be anything from 80-110 round h ...

Sounds as if you had a good time Jam Lady. The talk on chestnut blight sounds particularly interesting as I think it has just been detected in the UK. They are doing their best to contain it and chest ...

With the help or our Volunteer Group, husband and son did the deer fencing they wanted to do. I went with the less active group to look at the flora. Found a few interesting things including one we ha ...
