They are all God's creatures


Couldn't agree more.....thanks for the info King. The enclosed photo is a small structure that looked like a miniture lantern that I found suspended from the rafter of my garden shed. Soz not quite able to get it all in but I believe it was created by a queen wasp in the autumn for her to hibernate in and the two halves were sealed together by her once she was inside. . Come the following spring I found it open and flaking so carefully took it down and took this photo.

Wow...what a work of art ! Lovelight x


Where do slugs come on this list?


Big ones ,fat ones ,little ones, spindly ones, gooey ones, yucky ones are all at the bottom of the list waiting to work their way up exblonde!


I promise to protect all hedgehogs from my dog at all costs!
