If it is Echinops, then where are the bracts which should be just below the flower?

Decide for yourself, this is an Echinops.

Damson seeds contain cyanogenetic glycocides, a substance that can change into a killer in the body. The body can detoxify small quantities of cyanide, so lots of Damson pits would need to be consumed to die from the poison.

Actually adding some stones to the Jam gives it am almond flavour.

Makes eating it something of an adventure though!

It will continue to flower in due season, probably better than some of the sterile ones, as it will not spend any energy trying to make seeds.

Agree, Dove is correct, it is a sterile hybrid.

I am looking to buy a new Panasonic camera (got one already and like them and know mostly how to use it) Stuck between this one
DMC F272EB-K with x60 zoom and
this one
DMC LZ40EB-k with 42x zoom.
Anyone used the one with the greater Zoom and got good images without having to use a tripod all the time?
TIA.

And of course Crab apple Jelly is almost as good to eat as Damson Jam. Purée the fruit, allow to drip through a cloth and use the juice to make the jelly.

Pint of juice to a pound of sugar.
