Found loads of these slug eggs whilst forking my compost from one bin to the other.
I don't mind slugs in the compost bins, after all they are breaking down the stuff I put in there, but I do hate it when they hoover up my seedlings.
Still reading Dawn French. I'm not sure I like the format the biog. takes - a series of letters to people - at times I find it a little contrived, but it does allow her to speak as different aspects of herself, and even as different characters. Her letters to Madonna are funny, but I'm not sure what they are doing in her biog. as they read like they are written by a character from one of her progs.
Just started the Magician by Somerset Maugham. I'd started this book years ago, but lost it while travelling. Good old Kindle, now I can finally read it. I'd forgotten all about it, but was browsing through Feedbooks and found it.
Blustery cold wind in the garden today, but beautiful blue skies, so too hot in the greenhouse with my fleece on. Picked some more sweet peas. Why isn't there a scent called sweet pea, I cannot think of a nicer fragrance. For the past few months I've had a small vase of them on my desk.
Today my study is being kept nice and warm by the sun, but I will probably have to like the woodburner when the sun goes down. I'll be burning some of my next door neighbours' copper beech. Beech gives out a really good heat, but I have read that ash is the best. And for kindling I am still burning my way through my other neighbour's laths after the work they had done on their house last year. The workmen were delighted to put the wood over my wall as it saved them hoisting it into the skip and getting it carted off. I'm the great recycler!
