Two of my pyrawotsits burst into bloom today. The other one always lags behind.

You're a little behind the curve up there in the outer west mids. Mine has been in blossom for about a week now and is growing outwards like crazy.

Pyrowotsit has been looking good for about a week now. Training the little(?) fella over an arch and have the scars to prove it. Birds like it though, which makes it all worthwhile. :drill:

My Jasmine is out in full flower at present. The scent is so lovely that as I drive my car onto my drive in the front garden I can smell it from the back garden. I think I can even detect it in the kitchen with the back door shut!! The scent is so powerful, especially at night I think the whole neighbourhood can smell it!!! :D

Thanks greenfinch - I think that's it :D - I didn't know what it was called :laugh:

The slab is one I put an empty ground table on to help catch the debris from the sunflower heart feeder above, which has a seed catcher/base tray attached to it too. Despite this the mess is slowly building up again, around it.

This fungi has literally appeared overnight :laugh:

Nuthatch's reference to 'squishy cherries' in the Blackbirds topic remins me that I have not eaten one single cherry from my tree this year. It is totally bereft of cherries.
I blame the woodies :wife:

Yep, them along with Sturks and Blackbirds. They all love them and not too fussy about them being fully ripe. :tampoline:
