Another one for you Buzzy, but not an insect. Yesterday we saw a greater spotted woodpecker on our nut feeder. Strange as it is nowhere near any woods, nearest about 1/2 mile or more away.

Weather here was awful here yesterday so had a household day. Husband and son were trying to clear out one of the rooms while I did a load of washing, sorted some of the clean stuff and finally got ro ...

Glad you have been able to unearth the computer again to visit us Cassandra. How are you getting on with the dress, or is it on hold until the sewing machine is working?

I am still spinning my tops ...

The only times we have taken the little tractor out on the road; top speed 12 1/2 mph, we have had the truck driving behind with the hazard warning lights on, so 15 mph with timber lorries zooming aro ...

You are probably careful enough Jam Lady, but nobody can be completely sure of things with the lunatics running the asylum as seems to be the case with both our countries at the moment. I use FB for m ...

I would agree with that. I get the impression, perhaps wrongly, that she is lining the UK up to be a place where industry of the worst sort can do whatever they like.

Gregotyn, hazel is cut every 5-7 years, depending on what you want to use it for and how fast it is growing. In some places in our wood 7 years seems to be a bit long, but if it is shady, or a few yea ...

Is that normal winter temperature for you Jam Lady? I know there has been a very cold area over the US lately, but haven't heard if it has moved. We are back to mild weather at the moment, at least it ...

I hope it was just overlooked, but in the light of other failures, such as contravening the rights of the disabled by welfare cuts, I am not certain that was the case.

Hope Jam Lord manages all right without coming a cropper himself. That is even worse than snow, so careful driving seems to be the rule for the foreseeable future Jam Lady. Glad it wasn't too bad when ...

We finally managed to get going on the coppice yesterday. Husband and son went out with chainsaws and cut some very large hazel and got a few ash stems down from coppice stools that were going to fall ...

Cassandra has been on Facebook and not mentioned fires, so hopefully all is well near her.
