    Am I in a bad mood or what ?! :scheming:

    Just lost a Gaura, torn apart by a squirrel, bottom of the pieris shrubs lost their lower stems and with the gales, all 4 newly planted fuschias have sustained damage, the Acer 'Flamingo' almost snapped ! :(

    Has the wildlife and weather 'got it in' for me this year ? :eek:

    Also, can't seem to feed the birds enough, the feeders getting depleted not long after filling :rolleyes:

    That is it...I'm moving into a flat ! :twisted:

    Sure you are CJ!!! :rolleyes: I say much the same every year and I've been here for over twenty years now. :p Frustrating but when you see all your seedlings sprouting and your flowers blossoming it makes up for all the hardships. :D

    I always say that too. I'm going to put up a free plant sign at the head of the road and move into an apartment. But I know it ain't so, just our way of blowing off a little steam.

    Hmm let's step back a second and look for some sort of connection here...

    I'VE GOT IT.... Fat birds = Bad weather! 8)

    Solution: start feeding them diet bird seed.

    You're right in a way, as I have heard that unusual weather patterns affect the behaviour of wildlife, as it confuses their 'routine'.

    Not sure about the bird seed connection, but may change it anyway :D
