One of the few TV programmes that I miss is Gardeners’ World. I felt that last year’s series lost it’s way so I stopped watching it after a couple of shows.
I wasn’t the only one as viewing figures dropped and there were complaints galore. Thankfully the producers have recognised that they got it wrong and the new series, which starts in March and runs through to October, is going back to grown-up gardening. The show has to be informative, interesting and appeal to all gardeners. Let’s hope that the new half-hourly programmes do that!
Coming soon on BBc2 is Alys Fowler’s new series The Edible Garden – a home grown life. I’ll mention this again once I know when it’s being shown.
Among the regular birds that I’ve been seeing from my back doorstep over the past week have been a couple of grey wagtails and a mistle thrush. The tits, mostly blue tits, mostly stay up in the trees flitting about. Being small they’re difficult to see but I’m sure that one day I saw a coal tit. I really must clean the windows and find my binoculars!
Have a good weekend!
