    I’m thinking of growing a sunflower in memory of anyone who sadly didn’t make it through the virus….

    Thing is I have very little knowledge of doing so, is it to late in the year to early, I’ve got a pot, some compost no seed or flower yet..

    would anyone else be interested and maybe have updates on our growing experience🌻.

    Mrs Ajn pinched out a pear tree shoot & placed it a pot, it seems to be rooting, well it was a few weeks ago and it’s still green little leaves so hopefully it taken root, she did the same with lavender too..πŸͺ΄

    It’s horrible isn’t it? They currently sit outside the bird box waiting for the blue tits to come out for food ready to attack them ☹️

    Last week a magpie caught a mouse in the garden and tore it to shreds then came back searching for more.

    That sounds promising with your pear tree shoot (makes me think of Tilly) & lavender, I would be interested to know how they get on in the coming months. Il plant the mint in a couple of weeks if it starts to root.

    This is about the hardest weather they will be facing so far, they have had some time outside only dry warm though..

    Here’s the pear 🍐(Tilly) tree 🍐shootπŸͺ΄ pinched out by Mrs ajn, it seems to have taken, she just plonked it in with the tree we grown from a cherry stone..

    @Lou the magpies look lovely in colour and shape, but they attack no mercy, the doves, blackbirds, wood pigeons, sparrows, even seen a slow worm loose it’s life to them..

    Quite right about the magpies, folks. Utter thugs. I “rescued” one fledging last year which was dimΒ  enough to fly direct into window. Worries that it was dead were dispelled when the little blighter attacked my hand most voraciously. Did you know that magpies have VERY sharp beaks?

    Now I’ve tried to post some snaps of my monsters but WMC’s widgetry handling snaps seems to have taken a dislike to me and/or my pooter. Will give it a day and try again (have tried posting other pics which went OK first time but it bounces them as well, telling me to check sizes, they’re nice and small, and format, all jpgs). πŸ“·

    Strange, but true. Affecting all WMC forums – simply some software gone wonky, I think. Moderator maestros have been informed and will fix it, for which, many thanks.

    Thanks ajn your pic has made me feel quite optimistic about my mint cutting 😊 ah that did make me smile, I think Tilly pear dog 🍐🐢 has become a permanent fixture in the wmc forum.

    Tharg I rescued a grey quite large seagull once and held it far from my face whilst it was on my lap (I use to work with 2 large animal rescue charities) and I rescued a magpie a few weeks ago…I totally understand what you mean by sharp beak! It almost had my fingers and hand, the colours on them are lovely and not something you can truly appreciate from a distance or when they are in the sky.

    The baby blue tits are doing well (I can only assume, with the parents going in and out) but there’s a crowd of 6+ magpies sitting patiently in the tree directly above the box πŸ‘Ž.

    Hope you all have a nice Sunday. πŸŒ»πŸ™‚πŸŒ»

    As promised, here’s me triffids. They’ll have to go out into beds soon – probably Tuesday, weather permitting…

    And, while we’re at it, here’s the tomatoes…

    Have sent off for some other seeds. No pics will be posted…πŸ˜‰

    More admiring than the actual skill Tharg, however my admiring will be costing me a tenner, Mrs ajn has taken a shine to this,
