A Senior Moment.

Think I've done nearly everything mentioned on this thread, including leaving baby son in pram outside the butchers,  I was young then. Often go to the fridge and forget what I was going for. But lost my secateurs the other day, then, the next day OH found them in his shed. He'd borrowed them and forgotten!

Love the agastache, saw lots of them at the Breezy Knees garden near York. I'd never seen Black Adder in real life before as they don't seem to sell them here. I bought some Heather Queen plug plants a couple of years ago but they didn't survive the winter, and the seeds I'd sown didn't germinate;

Trailing petunias that I grew from seed - cheaper than surfinias, and rudbeckias.

Morning all.
Dordogne Damsel, this is a bad summer by Dordogne standards, but I prefer it. I hate the hot dry summers, uncomfortable and expensive on water. 2003 was awful. Lovely gladioli.

HW and ironing  this afternoon.

Hello hollie hock, how is the new garden coming along? Haven't heard from you recently.

Dordogne Damsel, where is your gardening club? I know of one in Dordogne but it's over an hour away opposite direction from you, so it can't be that.

Son No 2 rang wants me and Oh to go and help blitz his garden on Thurs morning, taking picnic lunch. He has about 40 coming for baby's christening on Sunday. Son No 1 is coming here on Thurs afternoon, 2 daughters on Friday.

Oh dear Gardengirl, it's only Tuesday, will you be ill that long? I hope not. Hugs.

Been to supermarket to prepare for the arrival of the hoards. Now off to water the pots.

Been looking up grasses because I'm sure that 2 rapidly growing grasses in the veggie garden are grown here for dairy cattle, probably in my horses' hay. Got out another barrow load this morning.

This is what I found about the one I identified, scary,  "Ability to spread: C. dactylon spreads rapidly by rhizomes and stolons, and also by seed. It can spread over 2 m/month during the growing season, a single plant forming a dense sward up to 25 m across in 2.5 years.

Weed potential: It is difficult to eradicate with chemicals or cultivation, and can become a serious weed in cultivated land. Declared weed in over 80 countries"

The other grass I have is bigger and worse, may be a type of sorghum;
