Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 23/06/2015 at 14:31

Have weeded the long border.

Plants ID please.

I have a feeling that the first one is a weed. I don't think the second is Jacob's ladder, but it looks familiar. Sorry, I'm not much help either.

"Funny" grass

Posted: 23/06/2015 at 09:39

I think it could be onion grass, pain in the neck, not hard to dig up, but has to be dug up as each little bulb will grow new grass. I have it in my paddock and I use my horse poo so quite likely it could be that. I find quite a few seeds, like thistles, survive being eaten by a horse and turned into rotted manure.

I'm sorry about your cousin, Verdun. Hugs x

I like the name Susie too. Good luck with her today, Mattie.

I woke up with sore throat at 5am, took Ibuprofen and went back to sleep. Feels better now but don't know that I should visit new grandson. Thank you all for the congratulations.

I opened my garden in May with the new French Open Gardens scheme for children with cancer and leukaemia. The same scheme as Dordogne Damsel above. I was very stressed before, but it was fine. 57 people came and it was a lovely day. Then I had to open an extra day as a Gardening Club of 40 people wanted to come. If you are doing teas and cake you need extra help.

Baby is cute, but like a baby, but not very like his 13 month brother was. When I arrived son and baby were asleep, DIL and I went for a drink on the hospital terrace by the café. DIL said she was too excited to be tired. It was an easy birth and she had an epidural. She'd still been up all night though.

I will be at DD's Open Day in the afternoon. Would you like a chocolate cake or a fruit cake with apple and sultanas? Both will freeze.

Just off to the hospital to see new grandson. 9th grandchild, should be an old hand now, but it's always exciting.

Any idea what this is?

I still think it's clary, salvia family. Do it's leaves have any smell? There are white ones as well as blue.
