Guess who's having fresh cherries off their own tree today. Feeling smug, even if it did take hours to put up the netting @gorstycote

In need of a share of those! Netputtingupservices!!! Needless to say birds have had all mine except the few I managed to net!

Ours have been and gone. Did manage to eat a few this year.

Bloody woodpigeons ate all ours, stripped the tree. x

I’ve watched the blackbirds strip mine bare with the raspberries for afters

Very nice, ours are getting there as are the wild ones.

Ate mine the other week - all 6 of them!

Did anyone see Gardeners World on Friday?
It was fabulous, all about wild flower meadows and the coronation meadows that had been set up on every county.
Get it on catch up if you've not seen it.
These are some of the flowers in our meadows

Your meadow looks fabulous. Staffordshire Wildlife have used seed from the Coronation Meadow at Rod Wood at other sites along the Churnet Valley.

My Mother in Law watches it with our youngest when she stays over on Fridays & they went to check out the wild meadow at Trentham Gardens on Saturday!

Yes, thought it was great - something to aim for! Am up to 4 orchids this year.

Beautiful. Did you sow them?

Just a short clip of Clive blasting off up the Oakamoor hill climb on his Norton Comando.
Sadly his old Velocette that he started out on this morning developed a technical glitch resulting in him driving all the way flat out as the carb got stuck open...........so he cooked his brakes trying to slow down!
