Like that Henry.

I haven't been out in the garden much lately, but think the daffodils are starting to come through in the front of the house at least. A few new primrose leaves in the woods ...

I am sure you are a lot later than us. Ours can vary by up to a month, and it seems to be no indicator of when the bluebells will be out anyway.

I think I will believe you are retired when you act ...

Although they might be of all sizes, another way is to recycle pots in conjunction with Dpacks idea. One of the free recycling web sites is likely to yield lots of odd pots from gardeners. I know we h ...

Rather odd. We haven't seen or heard very much evidence of birds even setting up territories yet. The pigeons at home are courting, but they always do regardless of the time of year, and heard the occ ...

That could well be positive enough Gregotyn. A number of our coppice workers are in their 80s and still going strong with a 'strong lad' usually in his 50s or 60s to do the heavy work.

We had ...

Sadly that bit of top was too bad even for a sun shade and no way of getting it to close.

Getting small quantities of things like nuts and bolts is expensive, so any odd ones you can pick out the ...

Ours seems to be a bit variable. The bluebell leaves are a bit late coming up, but I saw some wild arum leaves fully opened and some other unidentified leaves starting to come through the ground in th ...

The difficulty is collecting and using what is usually called 'brash'. We use rather more of it, but some is always too small, too contorted or otherwise unusable. Our problem is the tops of the hazel ...

Nice you have got a wood mouse back again. So Yungi may be the new patriarch then.

Apart from pigeons and the odd rook, haven't seen too much of interest in the garden. We went into town yesterday ...

Probably true, but trees the size Gregotyn is talking about would be better converted to larger items imo. Smaller trees could be used for smaller things. One thing that really annoys me is large tree ...

That seems the most likely reason. Setting up territory and then the ladies decide who they fancy. We once had two blackbirds with territories that met in our garden, and we had to put out two lots of ...

Just saw a post from her about a spinning meeting at the shop she has been sitting. Looks as if she is enjoying life, apart from losing Seb. The two cats are vying for place as top lap cat, so all see ...

I am not sure what size our wood burner is, but we get all the reject wood that is too long for other people, or is too knotty to split. The really impossible stuff goes in the charcoal kiln, so we ha ...

Managed to get round the wood on Wednesday, even through it was more of a slippery slide rather than a walk over most of it, and the bluebell leaves are starting to come up in the south of the wood. A ...

We have a small saw mill, and run it occasionally when we have some good saw logs. I would like to develop that side of the business, but seasoning the timber is a problem as we don't really have anyw ...
