Plant ID - weed?

Posted: 13/06/2016 at 20:24

It's not a weed in my garden, I like it. It isn't invasive either.

Been a busy day. Housesitters' rooms are ready. The young man can't manage the last two days so a friend is coming.
Picked 2 buckets of broad beans, (and some mangetout peas) now podded and in the freezer. Have tied up the tomatoes and removed side shoots. Done a load of ironing.


Weedkilled the drive this morning as weather seemed OK but 30 mins after I'd finished it poured! 

Have put away tables and chairs, got out for the Strawberry Tea. Also put away the cutlery. Have 40 - 50 each of knives, forks spoons counted into separate bags, the church stuff.

Must cook soon, Lemon sole, broad beans, mangetout peas and rice.
I hope the strike isn't on tomorrow. Really looking forward to going to Norfolk.


I hope all chesty folk feel better soon.

Can't remember if I posted any photos of my Open Garden, Wonky. People came in dribbles and drabbles throughout the day. Here is my garden on the day. But I didn't take many photos, no time.

Morning all. I slept well, didn't even hear OH getting up to let Tigger out.


Must freeze the broad beans today, make up housesitter's bed and pack. Hope we fly tomorrow, despite the French strike.

Nothing to do with gardening

Oh crikey, we are flying to the UK this week, I don't want to be an impacted passenger. I may be a left behind one as the French are on strike.

Your garden is looking great Wonky.


Hosta leaves burn in the sun in Dordogne, but they probably won't this year if it carries on like this, cooler and wetter than many parts of the UK.

Visited a garden after church, lots of roses but in a charming unkempt sort of way. Then went to DD's garden. Arrived a bit before 2pm. They were just sitting down for lunch so invited us. An hour later quite a few people arrived to look at her garden. It isn't a very nice day 13° and drizzly. Her garden is looking pretty though and her rockery and white bed have really developed and grown.

Home now then soon going to see another garden and stay for birthday party. He's our area organiser.

We are eating lettuces and broad beans from the garden.


Had lots of strawberries today, but not home grown, Strawberry Tea ones.

Evening all. Phew, Strawberry Tea over and most of the stuff is put away. It didn't rain! Sun actually made an appearance! DD and her friends came, think we were about 44 people. I had a good set of helpers.


Tomorrow we will be going to see DD's garden, then another friend and staying on for his birthday party.


Welcome back Dove. Glad you had a good time. I hope you have a good Cotswold holiday, Topbird. I loved Hidcote.
