Hi Hettihog, lol, you sound like me with my hubby. Today I’ve got him to remove a load of stones from a square in the lawn, then remove a ground cover and he’s shattered! I did help, but we both needed our emergency inhalers! I’ve told him it’s much easier to remove weeds from earth than stones on ground cover, (I just hope the hogs will enjoy digging in the soil) but not mentioned that! I came in and looked out of the window to see the birds already landed and pecking at the soil. I’m also running out with sugar water to save the whitetail bees. I won’t tell the story of the hen and cockerel I swooped on to save, but I can always bring up the bat that hubby once brought home in a card board box. We had to wait till a certain time and take it from where it came from, he had to dangle it from his finger whilst it shivered to get body heat up, then, as a train went by its little head shot round and off it went. But, it was I who had to carry it in a box on my knee and believe me, I won’t forget that. Good luck
