hmmm from the link it says

"Larkspur is basically an annual version of delphinium, an all-time favorite perennial. Larkspur produces lovely spikes of blue, purple, pink, or white flowers in spring and summer. They look best clustered in small patches."

The other nice thing is that if i let it go to seed it should keep coming back for decades   It could be either but I like it anyway its growing mixed in with blue corn flowers. But heres another mixture its growing with

Seems like there is a bit of backing down judging by yesterday evenings news reports.

It's not politics its mass murder, a cruise missile can't distinguish between an innocent civilian and a 'legitimate' target.  Hopefully a delay will help more people escape from Syria before bigger bombs hit their homes.

Improving, Fairy at least there is access and i've had to go shopping as some of the throwing out left me a little short in places.

I have got millions from people i've never heard of and lotterys I don't recall entering as for the extra inches i've had added to ... well no it's all bull. If anything seems too good to be true then it almost certainly is. These money scams all have something in common at some point you will be asked to pay a processing fee. Also beware of anyone wanting  to send more money than you want for something, even if the money appears to be in your account the actual processing takes longer and can be reversed.

Finally a plea

 I'm still not convinced

I really ought to make an effort to see some of the wild life that comes in here, had a nice owl fly over recently being tailed by a starling. There are foxes too that come in, as they take the time to relieve themselves on the grass. Not actally seen them yet but they do seem to come quite close to the cottage.

I've lightened the load a reasonable amount i think, t-shirts down to 13 lost the odd sweat shirt and now i need to buy more pants. There is space now to hold the clothes I have kept and I can get to my wardrobes and the laundry basket is empty for the first time in months, there wasn't anywhere to put my stuff after I washed it.

May seem odd but I think it comes down to composition. I was reading about the subject in relation to photography and somewhere I read that women are better at it than men. Its fairly natural for a man to live in a mess where as women have a better sense of organisation and  usually have a place for things. So I figured its time i did some sorting. It was some useful reading and surprised me with finding afterwards I could see the choices made in peoples photo's and even tv programs. Applying similar principles to my living area's seems to make things more pleasant. Thanks for the help

 i'm slightly neglecting my garden at present but this is the view from my bedroom and most of what you see i have added this year. Apologies for the focus i'm still half asleep.
