Re: Alexanders

now that's something i've never seen either,
I've watched the likes of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and others enthusing over the culinary qualities of it on those tv cookery programs,
but thats all i know about it,

Re: the weather

its been awful weather here, I've hardly set foot outside the door for several days now :( and this morning it was still grey, but dry, so I decided i'd risk a walk, but no sooner had I got my coat out when it started raining again, so that scuppered that idea :( so nothing to report on the wildlife...

Re: Cinnabar moth

heres a Cinnabar moth I spotted today, (just before we got soaked in a sudden downpour :shock: )
hope the moth found some shelter from it :roll:
one thing I noticed, was that it seems much duller than the ones posted here,

20 spot ladybird ?

this ladybird was sat on a nettle leaf enjoying the evening sunshine :)
it appears to have 20 spots on its back, so i'm assuming its a 20 spot Ladybird ?

Re: New Gallery

it looks very good, and that slide show bit (once I'd found where it was hiding :roll: ) makes it much easier to view the photos,
my photography skills leave much to be desired, so my albums will be somewhat sparse I'm afraid :?

Dog Rose

this Dog rose was clambering up the trees in the hedgerow, full of pink flowers,
very little in the way of scent from the flowers though,

Re: Help with baby sparrow.

we had a similar situation this morning, when a baby sparrow flew into the kitchen window and stunned itself :o but after half an hour in a cardboard box, it recovered ok, and flew off under its own steam :D one of the lucky ones this time, as invariably the birds that hit the glass fail to make it...
