Hi apples. I hope your granddaughter is all better now, it isn't nice being poorly.

Those egg cup trees sound great, if you have a dinosaur to lay an egg for breaky! :lol:

Now this would be a wonderful tree to have in the garden, make you feel like T Rex all day everyday! :lol: :lol: http://i4.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article ... t+DINOSAUR

This is a bad hair day tree. :lol:

I like the T Rex tree. Wouldn't it be a good idea if someone invented a spray that you could use when a tree had got to the size you wanted and you didn't want it to grow any more? You could use it one your hair too, it would save a fortune in haircuts.

Our little granddaughter is a lot better thanks Will. You can tell when she's really poorly as she stops talking. She's usually a little chatterbox. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

I'm glad to hear your granddaughter is better. :)

I like the bad hair day tree, much like me, the hair is flyaway! :P

It would be great to make trees stay in shape, I would have to make them all look funny in some way. :mrgreen: I have already picked out the house I want :arrow: http://lh4.ggpht.com/__zoKJ77EvEc/TYOaH ... imgmax=800 :lol: All it needs is a bird shaped tree and we are good to go. :D

I'd like a house like that Will, especially if was full of cats. :D

I wouldn't know which cat to cuddle first, they're all lovely. If I had very long arms I could cuddle them all at the same time. :lol:

I was looking on a list of garden features to find something catlike, but couldn't find anything. However, I found a stumpery.
It's like a rockery, except you use old bits of tree. I haven't heard of one of those before. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Hi apples.

Teehee it would be a cuddle factory that garden...Tesco would run out of cat food! :)

The stumpery sounds like a tree graveyard. :lol: Image


Image 100 of these might make the stumpery worthwhile. :mrgreen:

Hi Will. The photo looks just like our neighbours' garden. They keep chopping trees down and leaving the stumps. It looks a mess.

The cats are free range cats. :D

Mr. Apples has man flu ........ oh the joy. :roll:
Keep calm and carry on.

Your neighbours sound like divs! :roll:

The cats are free range, and they are magical cats too! Water them and they multiply, we'll take over people's gardens with free range cats in no time! :twisted: No one can moan, when they've give a free range cat a home. Their tom tit is green and can never be seen. :oops: :lol:

Awww bless, poor Mr apples! Emergency medication coming right up. http://www.manflu.com/images/manflu.jpg Shhhhh 100% placebo effect, works in 100% of life threatening man flu cases. :wink:

I hope Mr Apples feels better soon. :)

I made hubby some nice hot soup, but he soaked his feet in it. :lol: I'll tell him you hope he's better soon. He doesn't get much sympathy from me. :oops: :lol: He's better in health than temper at the moment. :lol: I'll give him the man flu medicine.

We had a woodpecker on the peanut pecker today.
Keep calm and carry on.

:lol: :lol: Soaked his feet in hot soup, tell him not to cross the road. If he does, don't ask him what is the other side, he'll lose his noodles. :oops:

Awwww poor Mr apples...there there, woo, well then! :lol: I know what will change his mood..........nurses uniform. :mrgreen:

Lucky you seeing wood peckers, we never see them in our garden. Were they green or greater spotty ones?

I think I'll be matron. That'll sort him out. :lol: Hubby says thank you for the Man Flu medicine, he feels much better. You wouldn't think so. :roll:

It was a greater spotted woodpecker. It's difficult to take a photo as they're so nervous.

It's a horrible, cold day today, and it's supposed to snow again tomorrow. :x
Keep calm and carry on.

The only way too stop squirrels getting to any bird feeder is to give them a feeder of their own so they leave the birds ones alone.

However in dong that your lawn will then get dug up when they bury anything they dont eat

I've just been looking at squirrel feeders. It's a good idea, but they'll probably eat their food and then start on the bird's nuts.
The squirrels are very destructive, they often pull the bottom out of the bird feeder so that all the nuts fall on the ground.
Keep calm and carry on.
