Here's something that puzzles me - can anyone explain?

Every spring masses of mole hills appear on public amenity grass areas round our way - the areas of grass that are owned and maintained by the council or by housing associations; but I have never seen one in a private garden. Often there are immaculate front lawns immediately adjacent to the affected public grass.

In both cases, public areas and private front gardens, the soil was prepared and seeded by the builders when the estates were built. Can anyone explain why the moles definitely prefer public land?

Loads of Ladybirds about at the moment, frisky they are too - not fussy who by all accounts - lots of chasing going on - not much catching...

It seems to be a good year for Ladybirds we are seeing more than in recent years in our garden.
Only 7 - Spot species though. They are a photographic challenge.Smile

After a bit of chasing and slow, careful movements I managed to capture my first orange tip of the year today.

Have just mowed the lawn, pulled up hundreds of sprouting sycamore seeds and cleaned the windows. Now I'm going to hang out the washing for the first time this year.
I'm so easily pleased at the moment. Grin
Thank goodness for the garden.

Good job I did that a few days ago. It's bloomin' freezing again now. Sad

This year we have more fruit blossom than I've ever seen in previous years, the apple trees are simply covered. Mirabelles, cherries and peaches the same. Too early for the Kaki, but it looks promising. The not so good news is a late frost earlier in the week. Hopefully it was not severe enough to do real damage - time will tell.
Ate the first asparagus from the garden yesterday.
