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 ...

Thanks Dpack. I have only been to York. I don't know the north of England at all as I have always lived down south. I have been to the Lake District a few times; once on holiday and other times on bus ...

I noticed that you go from town to rural in far shorter distance in the north than down here Dpack. Here we tend to get sprawl for miles. We do have a natural barrier with the Downs, but the people te ...

Interesting post Dpack. It seems other people spend as much time getting to know their birds as you do. I hear alarm calls from birds in the garden fairly frequently; probably a cat or bird of prey on ...
