  1. What is that leafy mound, bottom right, of the first image please?

    Everything is looking so neat and tidy. Puts me to shame.

    1. It's a foxglove, Deborah. They self seed in a this bed and as long as they are not interfering with anything, I leave them. The bees love them.

    2. Gosh, it's big for the time of year, that's why I thought it was maybe a comfrey or something else! I let them have free reign in my garden which has turned out to be a bit of a mistake now.

  3. With the green grass but bare branches, your mid-March it looks like our October.

  4. Sue, I am always amazed at how tidy your plot is. I love the grass pathways. Spring looks to be at a similar state to ours...except you are dry. Jealous.

    1. There are some untidy areas, Jenni that rarely make it into the photos 0 not a conscious decision to hide them but we tend to photograph to record what we have done not what we haven't. Some of the beds are still very wet and muddy.

  5. Yout little pond is lovely, hopefully in future years it will be home to lots of frogs who will happily munch through your slugs :)

    1. The aim is for it to be more of a bird bath, Jayne. We do have lots of frogs, toads and newts in the plot as the site has lots of lakes nearby and also a few plots have wildlife ponds. The slugs and snails still seem to win though.

  6. Slug defence built, are your frogs feeling amorous?

    1. I hope that the slug defences work, Brian. The frogs on the garden pond deposited lots of spawn but lots of it was eaten by the fish. We did manage to save a clump and have it protected from the fish. We still have the odd frog that seems late to the party.

  7. I think our plot would be too muddy to have grass paths. We have paved paths but then they get slippery with moss.

    1. Our grass gets muddy too, Margaret, but it recovers over summer.

  8. I'm always surprised at the size of your plot! Great wildlife area.xx
