    1. Your back yard? How great to have such a beautiful garden right at your home.

  4. Okay, I'll be the first to ask.... what the hell is that thing that looks like a toasted marshmallow with a tear in its eye? (Lovely foxgloves, btw!)

    1. It's a myxomycetes fungus - probably a Lycogala species, Mrs S.

  6. It looks very good.
    Is that a fungus and if so do you know what it is?

    2. I thought it looked like a slime mold. The ones I see here are orange or yellow and look like scrambled eggs.

  7. The pictures of the robin are my favourites of this lot! I assume Mac and Annabel were not close by...

  8. Oooh, yum, gooseberries :) Haven't had any of those in a long time. My parents used to have them in the garden at the House, but that bush did not give much over the last few years that we had the place... The rest of your garden looks really lovely too!

  9. Are those gooseberries? Surely not! They are too early. I love them (probably because Nana grew them) but they are so hard to come by these days.

    1. No, Geeb. They are white currants.

  12. Are you teasing John? White currants? They are gooseberries surely? I can even see the "gooseberryish" strips on the skin.

    1. Would I tease, Spesh? Seriously, they are white currants. Much smaller, tastier and without that horrible texture of a gooseberry.
