The garden and Forrest are starting to come to life with new additions everyday... I will try and keep you up to date with any new additions in the garden and the Forrest... if you would like photos of anything specific then please let me know and I will be happy to oblige. I am also hoping to add some video later when I have mastered the camcorder. In the meantime I hope you enjoy the photos.
A very windy day yesterday which managed to blow over some quite heavy pots and bring down a few branches from the trees, this will now mean a couple of unplanned jobs at the weekend, re potting and fire log chopping oh Joy. All this was overshadowed by the very acrobatic skills of Cyril the squirrel. I wouldn't mind but I put food on the ground for the squirrels, Cyril obviously enjoys a more inverted lunch...

It is quite interesting how your values change when moving to the country, having lived in a city for the majority of my life, I was a typical "Townie" where rabbits were little fluffy things that lived in a luxury timber maisonette and moles where admired, from a distance for their engineering and earth moving capabilities. Your opinions start to change when, having returned from the garden centre with a boot full of plants and a hole in you wallet that not even Mr Mole could fill. You have spent the whole of your Sunday planting and creating a beautiful, colourful and aesthetically pleasing landscape, only to be confronted on Monday morning with total destruction from the terrorist organisation better known as RFFFF (Rabbit Free Food Fighting Force) these guys will eat anything!! So from going from a hunting conscientious objector I know find myself trawling the Internet for "Rabbit Control" which always ends in looking at pictures of the latest anti RFFFF deterrents.... more commonly known as guns.
