This is our Bamboo on the 2 December


The bamboo is much hardier than you would think, it has survived several winters now and some of them have been very cold with temperatures down to minus 22 Celsius (and that is COLD, brrr).



or actually surprisingly fast – for a snail anyway – this one covered about 2 metres in less than 30 min.

must have been tough in the tall grass (due to constant raining I had not been able to mow the lawn in days.


I think it is our duty to try and save anyone in need. This little Bumblebee ended up in some trouble after heavy rains (I think) and sat rather exhausted on a Lobelia flower in our front garden. We picked him/her up and gave some honey…..put him/her on a flowering shrub after a while. Some time later no bumble to bee seen, so what happened next is unclear.
