Checked them out. Dark one is raven. Pink one is heavenly blue, which for some reason has gone pink.

Thanks PJ. I'll fish out the labels tomorrow but I'm fairly sure the dark one is raven.

I can't abide tea of any kind. All of them taste like what they are - dead leaves.

I'd eat the teapot any day

It can happen with age, apparently. Both heads don't age at the same pace. One becomes fat  and sagging and falls forward, leaving the slightly younger-looking one attached behind.

I may be mistaken and it is, in fact, Jake the Peg who must be getting on a bit too.

That sound like the bottle of Dubonnet at a 70s/80s BYOB party.

I reckon there were only about half a dozen in existence and they were brought from party to party - never opened and passed on by those too broke or too mean to buy a bottle of Blue Nun, Black Tower, Mateus Rose or even a Party Seven.

Still have a bit of autumn colour.

Last or first primrose?

teasel lurking in the primroses like a roast parsnip in a Christmas dinner

confused wallflower 

doomed self-seeder

penstemons - my new favourite plant

Uneaten holly berries

well if you've got it - you've got it.  Mine's courtesy of the council's covert tree - killing programme.
