Grasshopper alert! These are not usual visitors in my garden. They make me nervous because they remind me of the plague that swept through my home town when I was a child. This one was not interested in leaving its spot on my kale. I need to look up organic repellents. If you know any let me know.
Apple blossom in the sunshine, really hoping this tree produces some fruit this year! #blossom#spring
I just can’t kill these lovies. Even if they do eat my beloved #delphiniums. Instead, I gather them from my garden in an old yogurt pot and take them to a tree around the corner in the hope they’ll find something less precious to munch there. Or, failing that, that they get eaten by the blackbird who has been giving daily concerts at dusk and who deserves a hearty dinner in return. I prefer not to witness the dinner though.
There are lots of allotment and garden jobs to do in April that will benefit your local wildlife, now that spring has arrived. This could involve making insect hotels with the kids or even digging out safe places under the shed for unexpected guests. Leaving food out can always be risky, but if you don't mind what wildlife gives you a visit then give it a go!

Who still remembers being told made up stories by their parents or other adults? The stories we hear as children shape our view of the world. Making up little stories with your children not only models story language it also familiarises them with story structure. Wouldn’t this house make a great setting for a story?

"Qualsiasi pianta tu voglia coltivare, devi capirla nella sua essenza più profonda.
Il pollice verde esiste ed è un mistero solo per coloro che non sono pratici. Il pollice verde è l'estensione di un cuore verde". (Russell Page)
