We went for a walk in a woodland we hadn't really visited for about 50 years yesterday, although it isn't very far from home. Interesting, as I didn't realise it had a wood bank round it. Hard to see ...

The Holy Grail of any polymer production is that it does its job, is stable when needed but breaks down into non-toxic by-products and ideally isn't based on fossil fuels. Of course during production ...

Nice story.

This year, rather than birds, we have bumble bees nesting in our timber frame. They aren't too keen on the thumping as a piece of timber lands, but apart from buzzing out a bit, they h ...

Some types of wasp look a bit like that, and one of them stung husband some years ago.

Butterflies are starting to be a bit more common. May have seen a silver washed frittllary the other day, bu ...

I would think you would have seen life from the willow. I might be able to send you some rosemary cuttings if you want. If I send a few, you could propagate from them once they really get going.

I suspect the fence was to mark the boundary more than any other reason, and was probably the cheapest option. Agree you want to keep the cows out of your bit so they don't use your supports as scratc ...

Interesting article.

The warm weather has brought things on in the garden well; the wisteria is in full flower and the ox-eye daisies are opening. The blackbirds are actually nest building rather ...
