Donald or hillary?

But do note everyone that Verdun apologised on the previous page.

Donald or hillary?

Posted: 10/11/2016 at 09:09

I remember when Verdun was called Christopher, he was quite shy and only posted about plants then. Then he was angry because another poster tried to steal his profile, so he changed his name, then I remember, as does Dove, when he had a sense of light hearted humour and liked doughnuts. Now he sends out sniping digs and upsets people. Is it the same Verdun we used to love? Or has he been taken over? Please come back the fun Verdun.

Plants IDs

I think 1 and 2 are argyranthemums because of the leaves.


5 is indeed a Physostegia or Obedient plant because if you push the flowers they stay there.


6 may be a rudbeckia called Maya.

Agapanthus and frost.

The deciduous ones with thinner leaves tend to be more hardy than some others.

Punkdoc, it's just not worth it losing it big time over Verdun. Dove and I were anti-Brexit too so we are all "Elite" together.

I have been following this but I don't want to get involved with politics, especially after all the Brexit upset. I am anti-Brexit, obviously, living in France. (not my choice, by the way)


But now it is getting silly - please stop bickering. There are so many different points of view about different things it's just not possible for everyone to agree, but there is no need to upset each other about it.

What is your weather like? (2)

Cold, wet and windy in Dordogne too.

We went to the supermarket and now OH has gone to choir practice.


Our weather has been the same as Dove's, a cold and gusty wind and bursts of rain.

Best Salvias to grow?

Posted: 09/11/2016 at 09:54

This is my Salvia "Blauhugel" a couple of years ago in June. I posted a link above because I wasn't at home, but now I'm back and have access to my photos.


 Although it looks rather tatty now, November, after a few frosts, there are still flowers on it. I've had it for years, can't remember when I bought it. But it is only about 12 -18" tall.


I've had Wendy's Wish which was great but they didn't survive the winter, then Love and Wishes which have been disappointing this summer. I expect Ember's Wish is the same family.

Hello Fairygirl, good to see you back. What has happened to your hand? Apart from Trump, I hope you are OK.
