I have heard it called that too, and must try it this year. Turned very warm here, so all the flowers are coming out. A real mix with primroses, bluebells, wood anemones and violets to name but a few. ...

They are probably offspring of an escaped domestic rabbit, although sometimes melanistic (?) animals do occur, but not heard of it in rabbits. Not sure if I have mentioned it before, but one place I w ...

When I was at school we were told mouse urine smelt or acetamide. The wood mice we sometimes see are lovely little animals, but like most mice, they do have this bad habit....

We did our first charcoal burn of the season yesterday, so were rather later in the woods than usual. I was sitting in the van reading when an adult hare went lolloping past. Husband was sitting by th ...

I would suggest 2-4 weeks too. If you are growing climbing beans, try to get them out before they start climbing up each other.

Nice picture again. I do sometimes wonder about the descriptive smells; in the mind of different people I think. Some are quite strong, but others just smell sort of earthy of nondescript to me.

I assume Early Purple Orchid. Dpack always writes in code!

We are on a hill, and I noticed when my parents lived only a couple of miles down the road from us, their garden was up to 2 weeks ...

Yes, Spanish bluebell are a constant threat. If we see any that look Spanish or cross, we destroy them to stop them hybridising. You may find the colour of the bluebells depends on the time you see th ...

Odd you haven't seen bluebell foliage yet, as with us it starts to come up some time between mid-December and mid-January. It is no indicator of when they will flower though, as the foliage started co ...

We get a few white flowers every year, but not noticeably the same ones. They don't seem to spread, so just the odd on here and there. A professional gardener told me that his pink ones seemed to spre ...

Quite a lot of the daffodils round here have gone over, but some of the later ones still in flower. Our bluebells are starting, and passing another bluebell wood yesterday, they are quite obviously st ...

We had a wet day yesterday, so husba ...
