    Your photography is stunning.

    Guinea pigs can help with the dandelions – when we had them our neighbours would drop whole plants off at the back gate almost every day from March -November.

    Can’t help being impressed by such a brilliantly adapted plant, and it is beautiful too. Lovely photographs.

    Wow, great shots! Imagine if everyone of those seed heads germinated!!

    Greg – you’re so right, yet I still couldn’t resist giving it a blow! I hope the hard baked ground was impenetrable to the little blighters.

    Fiona – don’t see many guinea pigs passing my plot {wink}. I thought about making dandelion tea ones then realised it wasn’t worth as it tastes more like coffee (or perhaps mud!).

    Janet – and catapaulted back to memories of childhood at the mere sight of them

    Trevor – it would be my own fault if they did. Time will tell!

    VERY young dandelion leaves are OK in salads, but they quickly become too bitter, unless you are a rodent!

    I have never been a fan of dandelion tea. The flowers do make nice cordials and wine though. Foarger’s brewing is my Big Thing for this year.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
