We used to take our children swimming in that lake in the summer holidays. Here it is in summer, just to show you, but not a beautiful composition like DD's.


plant / weed id please

Grey one isn't a weed. I think not Lamb's Ears as leaves too wide, probably verbascum.

Frilly one looks like a weed I dig up regularly that smells a bit carroty. Could it be wild carrot? See photo.


Raspberry food

My raspberries seem to enjoy rose fertiliser.

DD, given the state of their tummies, I don't think they would have wanted to share!

Tigger is Tigger because he behaved like Tigger in Pooh Bear when he was very young, even though he isn't in the cat family.

Been watching recorded Mr. Selfridge.

KEF, Tigger, who I took to the vet, is a dog! He has a tummy upset, vet gave him an injection and some medicine. He lost a tooth a few days ago, but vet says that isn't related to the tummy. Getting old, 12.

Morning all. Frosty and -7° but it's melting in the sun. Taking Tigger dog to the vet this afternoon, he's still off his food and was sick in the night.

Yvie, your Mum sounds a gutsy lady

HF Young looks super, now where can I put it?

My dad wouldn't let me see "Girl on a Motorcycle" when I was 16 as she had bare breasts (so he'd read in the paper). My mother pointed out that I had breasts. My grandfather rushed off to see the film!

I have Etoile Violette in a westerly position, gets smothered with dark purple flowers, but may not be dark enough for you. I love it.

Have you looked at this site? I use it when I need advice.

Your garden is gorgeous, Berghill, even in winter.

My garden is looking a bit sad at the moment worst time of year, but here are a few photos anyway, showing some tiny signs of life.
