Re: Coronavirus

I've had mine too. I've been getting the flu jab for over 20 years, since I got a horrendous bout of flu. Was so sick, I couldn't get to bed, never mind a doctor or hospital. My husband was away at the time, and dau was about 11 or 12. She, bless her, was taking care of both of us, and getting herse...

Re: nature notes

Sorry if I'm being a bit slow, but why are you concerned about things growing where your septic tank drains? I'd guess that they're taking advantage of all of the natural fertiliser that your septic tank provides? We have cobnut trees & rose bushes around ours. The wildlife enjoy the nuts & we enjo...

Re: nature notes

Too true bym. And LadyA a patchwork of different mini habitats is better than a huge area all the same, unless you’re trying to conserve orangutans of course. If everyone with a bit of land did it the wildlife of the British Isles would be in a much better position. Lawns might give a source of wor...

Re: nature notes

No opinions on what you should do with the poly tunnel but I love the sound of your field. Sounds like a wildlife paradise. Is it a closed canopy or do you have lots of woodland flower too? Well, it started out as a sort of take on ancient "sacred groves". I mean, it's very small, for what he plant...

Re: nature notes

I've got lots of thick hedges here. A massive hornbeam hedge (which I'm now letting grow) which has several other trees incorporated into it including oak, hawthorn, willow, elder. One huge leyandii hedge which tbh, I would love to take out, but my neighbours plead with me to leave it because (a) it...

Re: Coronavirus

:lol: :-)08 :-)08 We went and did our panic buying yesterday. 4 trays of winter pansies, 2 bottles of wine, some tuna, newspaper, milk. That should see us through. We did get a few strange looks as everyone else had trolleys full. In our defence, perhaps the paper was over the top, but it was for m...

Aw, how very lovely, Margaid. It's lovely, especially in these weird times we're living through, to have such a show of support.

Re: Save our badgers

Put me in charge of all 60,000 of them. Then all of the badgers can sleep securely at night. Why not just vaccinate the cattle??? Hen-Gen, can you tell us why they don't??? So far as I read at the time it was to do with the export market of breeding stock. It is, apparently, a fact that one can’t t...

Re: Distraction...

The real office is a hermetically sealed air con box and not nice at all but I do miss the travelling to get there - somehow wandering upstairs with a cup of tea doesn't feel like arriving at work. .... love the photo montage, by the way. That's why a lot of people working permanently from home hav...

Re: Cheery Pics

Gosh, though, you really do have to admire the brass neck of the makers, don't you?! And of course, if they weren't selling them, shops wouldn't stock them. So, there are obviously those who's desperation to be seen as "chic" cancels out their common sense!
