...and todays identity crisis is...!!!

Posted: 04/11/2013 at 22:59

Well so much for me feeling chuffed with myself for finishing photgraphing and identifying the first 3 borders of the garden....

All I am doing now isI am sat 'ere comtemplating my navel, because...

Basically I must 'ave done someat wrong.....

I have done the whole thing in OpenOffice.org Writer...(similar to Word but free) and the file is 36 pages long...(its got about 20 photos in it altogether.)

...and it has turned out to be 83.333KB...

...me thinks that is just a tad too big...(gord alone knows what a KB is but my computer has slowed down and feels like a ticking bomb waiting to blow itself to smithereens...)

soooooooooooooo.....

...I am orf to my bed to sulk......

So many many many thanks to all that are helping me to identify this garden...I really really appreciate it...

Right thats it done...I have (Well actually YOU have...but I might claim all of the credit...)...have now identified all the plants in 3 out of the 18 or so borders and I have made a file on the computer...

It's right fancy...there are photos, plant details, latin names, the whole bl**dy caboodull...I am feely right chuffed with mesell...!!!

It has been a right drawn out affair but I think it will all be worth it when I print it orf...

...all I need now is a very large bank loan to pay for the bl**dy ink cartridges...it will need shed loads me thinks...

Identity Crisis Number 5

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/33634.jpg?width=272&height=350&mode=max

 God alone knows what this one is ...but it did a good impression of trying to die last winter...it turned black...!!!...I was going to dig it up but in my bone-idleness decided to leave to see what if anything would 'appen...well low and below it recovered and and a shed load of white flowers on it...

At the moment it doesn't look too bad so much so that it has shot out 2 long shoots up the front of the house...do I cut them orf...???..(before or after it turns black...!!!)

....if you were all in the same room, you guys humour could be life threatening ...!!!!

Right 'tis the start of a new week and most of the garden plants are still suffering an identity crisis...but I am getting there...

...the first 3 borders are now just about all photoed, identified, plant details found and now have their own wee file on the computer...

The plan is to have a reference point for each border and therefore each plant within this existing garden...

...now that is all well and good if this darshed fool (me...!!!) had thought to take the bl**dy pictures when the garden/plants were in flower...therefore making them easier to identify but no that would have been too easy and would have required more forethought...(something I am not well known for)... who am I trying to kid, I would never have known what most of them were when in full bloom anyway...!!!

soooooooo...

here are the next three piccies...

Identity crisis Number 4

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/33630.jpg?width=272&height=350&mode=max

Now my neighbour swears this is an Aster but I thought it was a Campanula...it had largeish blue harebell like flowers that seemed to wither and go papery really quickly...I kept deadheading and that seemed to keep it flowering...

...if you look on the left very close to this plant is someat else which for the life of I cannot remember the colour of the flowers...looks like I cut it back and the leaves are starting to come again...You get extra points if you can identify that one...!!!

Identity Crisis Number 6

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/33632.jpg?width=272&height=350&mode=max

 This one is still flowering now (you can see the flowers if you zoom in on the piccie)...the leaves are sort of feathery(ish)

Thanking you for your time
