Has the look of Ragweed, the seeds of which are often included in Bird feeding mixes.

Viburnum Opulus Cranberry Bush

Large quantities of the fruit can cause vomiting and diarrhoea.  The fruit is of very low or zero toxicity, it only causes mild upsets when eaten unripe or in large quantities

And at £44.95 for a small one, Edgeworthia is a bit pricey for us, as well as being too tender.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Managed to remove the old leaves from some of the Pulsatillas. They are going to be very early this year, looking at the buds

Snowdrops

The snails and slugs here have survived this winter, so far and they definitely eat Snowdrop petals. However, I think that under normal conditions, the petals desiccate very quickly down to a tiny brown wisp,which drops on to the soil and is hard to see.

So you are the muffled titter which runs round the room then!

Bored out of my skull. Even the Prize crosswords were write ins. Took me all of 20 minutes to do them.

Once upon a time you sent a hand made message anonymously to someone you liked. None of this expensive rubbish which is promoted these days. And why should I tell my loved one how I feel on just one day in the year when I tell her every day?

My toe is because I had to have my big toe nail removed as it was so badly damaged by dropping something on it a while back. Hope if heals soon as the garden is definitely getting away from us at present.

Managed to walk round the garden today. It is a mess. My toe has stopped me from doing the jobs needed. Too dratted painful to stand up for long and the ground is too wet to go out in my slippers which are the only non-painful footwear.

Still it has given me time to proof read my books. Fabulous birthday present from eldest son. He has arranged for some of my stories to be printed. Chuffed is the word.

Feed with Tomato fertiliser. Nip off the individual spent flowers.

What/Where have all my snowdrops gone?

The flowers on ours are nibbled by snails, sometimes even before they emerge from the ground too.
