  1. Cold and wet Sunday - off to the Garden Centre...

    by , 26-10-2008 at 01:26 PM
    ... only because they have apple tasting today; NOT to buy anything (mmm..we'll see). We've been reading up on Frogs and got some advice from fellow Grapes and think that our girl should be quite happy where she is. At that end of the garden its damp and cool, there's a woodpile and a wall and lots of places to take cover, including the compost bin. I do hope she has a chance to meet other frogs though, what's the point of one? We want a population!
    To catch up: Dh's mum is out of hospital ...

  2. We've got a pet frog !!

    by , 24-10-2008 at 02:30 PM
    .... I was clearing the corner of the bed near the fence and came across what was I thought was a toad (coz it was big).

Where I had found her (after some research on t'internet I think she's female coz she's big) was too dry, and a bit exposed too.

    The TreeMan came yesterday to see what could be done with the ever-spreading plum tree - more like trees actually as there are five of them. He said he'd have no bother chopping down three of them and thinning the two which remain.
    Also he can take the choppings over the back wall rather than bring them through the house; which is good.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that his quote isn't too high. Watch this space.
