Gardening quiz.

The only Irish county that I can think of that is plantable is Cork, but Cork is a big county. Unless it's an anagram as well and I'm hopeless at anagrams.

Willow is commonly used in Holland and aspirin comes from willow, which is why I chose it. But in Scotland, where Bushman comes from, alder or Scottish birch is used more commonly.

Newbie alert!

Hello Dave. That's a huge difference already.

I planted mine in the same bed, but in rows. I labelled them carefully, then we had a gale and the labels blew away! Autumn is a good time to plant then they will be established by next year, and will fruit.

Rained for 2 minutes this evening. We are desperate for it too.

Glad you had a break, DD.

Hope Dove and Wonky enjoy Bressingham as much as we did.

I have watered a lot this week. When we got back from holiday everything was very droopy and the housesitter hadn't bothered although asked and it's been hot and sunny. Now the phlox, rudbeckias, clerodendron and zinnias are recovered and flowering.

 I'm glad you had a good holiday, Chicky. I love Italy too.

Wow Fairygirl, grass never looks like that in SW France. This is my grass at the moment.

Lunch went very well, forecast was wrong again, no rain - think it's just wishful thinking. Warm, had lunch outside, cold salmon, cold chicken and a selection of salads. But after lunch I found a tomato, mozzarella and basil salad still in the fridge. Oh well, we'll have it tonight!

Morning all.

Friends coming to lunch today. We were going to eat salad in the garden, but now the forecast says rain. I have wanted rain for weeks, but not today!

Roast chicken Dove? Thought you were having ham hock for the next week!

Lesley, are you going to Sicily (your ref. Mt. Etna)? That's where we are going in September.

Fabulous views FG and Jo.
