The expression 'Derry Down' which appears in several Robin Hood ballads, was the refrain used by Druids when they wanted to call an assembly of the people by the old Oak tree. Londonderry sprang up around the site of a former Druid grove.

The pollen of the Arum Lily gives off a faint glow at dusk and for this reason they were known as fairy lamps in some parts of Britain.

It is worth repeating - although depressing that it should be necessary. If you love gardens and gardening and have one iota of responsibility for our ecology and environment DO NOT USE PEAT! It really is that simple.

Old article but still relevant. Ireland is phasing out its peat-fired power stations, but by far the most peat dug in Ireland is for use in garden compost, & most of that is exported to Britain. Catastrophic levels of carbon are released by peat digging.

This is the problem in a nutshell. It’s not Greta Thunberg who needs to go study economics, it’s Mnuchin and Trump who need to go study science.

An early morning walk yesterday meant I had flock after flock of Whooper swans flying directly overhead. Their joyous bubbling as they called to each other three fields away was amazingly uplifting

There’s evidence that hearing birdsong can alleviate anxiety & lift mood. If you’re feeling crap open the window & listen. You may hear a songthrush:short phrases repeated 2-5 times. The dawn chorus is building slowly. Also audible from our window house sparrow,robin, woodpigeon:

Horrified to hear Bunny Guinness of promoting use of peat on Radio4 this morning. Ripping a huge carbon store from the ground, destroying rare habitat, all to grow some ornamental flowers - madness. BBC, can't you find competent gardening 'experts'?
