Lot to learn
Yes I rant & rave about the farmers ripping out entire hedges just to gain a few square yards, it should be banned. I mow the grass in phases so there are always a few daisies around & there are a few areas of wilderness & wild flowers.
A lovely Angle shades came to have a tipple on the rope tonight, at least my bar is open (unlicenced too), hope I don't get done for offering drinks after curfew! LOL
I put it on especially for Wendy as I know she's fond of them too.

In reply to gaynorsl:
Lol, Gaynor. A couple of years ago we also heard another talk by the man posting most of the RSPB blogs on this forum about gardening for wildlife and finally we will have our first tiny patch set aside for wildflowers this summer, although we have yet to order the seeds. But I would happily wager a modest amount that Mr GB will make certain that the edges are kept in an extremely tidy condition. And whether or not he will be able to resist cutting it until the correct time, well, the jury is not only out, they've given up and are not coming back--not a chance he will be able to wait!
A few from the last week or so, a Comma,
