Looks like chives.

Which Plant would you like to be?

Something that prefers a cool shady place, but is pretty too and doesn't get eaten by slugs or deer ? Pulmonaria.

Late Hello!

Went to local water board today about the huge bill following the water leak. They wanted original of bill from plumber and a letter from me. The woman in the office wrote the letter for me and said she had cancelled the bill. I should received a new bill more in line with my usual payments. She also told me that they have no problem with water, plenty under the ground, although some areas are suffering. She said I can carry on watering the garden. Phew!

I did the weekly shop in the supermarket there, instead of Leclerc near Périgueux. Have just read in local paper that the farmers are demonstrating about milk and meat prices and have dumped a load of manure at the entrance to the motorway and parked a load of tractors in the Leclerc carpark - so I escaped that. Another phew!

Gardening quiz.

Thank you Susan. I asked some one about her at the garden, they said she rarely appears now as she's getting very frail.

I think it should have 5 largish leaves. I have grown it in a previous garden but not this one.
