I think so too. I would dig it up. In your last post you asked about poisonous berries. This will have poisonous, but bright and pretty, berries. My children ate some when they were aged 2 and 4 and I had to rush them to hospital with burning throats.

Work in progress in veggie garden. But not very interesting unless you are fascinated by earth!

I grow Nasturtiums in the veggie garden next to the broad beans. They are meant to entice the blackfly off the broad beans! Last year I didn't have blackfly on either I decorate salads with the edible peppery flowers. Very easy to grow and the seeds are big enough to manage easily. Here in France they are called Capucine. The Latin name is Tropaeolum.

I will be recording "The Widower" on +1 as OH wants to watch "The Plantagenets".

Tracey, before you went off for the w/e (glad you had a good one) you said something about delphiniums not germinating. I tend to buy plants and take cuttings of the shoots, it's quicker than seeds. But not so many of course, if they germinate.

Hi all, kettle on, toast on, nurse off sick ... bet she had too many chocs yesterday

 

I must have seemed a bit thick, but our health checks are done in a clinic with several nurses, doctor, dentist, optician, ear doc and gynaecologist so I didn't see the significance of a nurse being off sick. They used to be free every 2 years, now it's 3 yearly.

Guests gone, having a coffee then back to deal with the rampant honeysuckle and vinca.

Everyone must be busy today. I've just got back from a concert OH was singing in with the local choir, in aid of research for eye diseases. There was a great tea afterwards made by the French ladies of the host choir.

Sun and 20° was forecast, but they were wrong, it was grey and cool and a bit drizzly this afternoon.

Hedgehogs?

Very brave to pick him up Tracey, well done for saving him. Did it hurt?

Did little posies for Mothers Day service this morning. Lots of my bellis daisies sown from seed last year, a few pansies and wallflowers (but wallflowers not quite out yet), lots of wild cowslips and Gypsophila and golden rod from the flowers. I put them all in a bowl, looked pretty, and 2 little boys gave them out at the service.

 

Anemone de Caen

Hello Dragonfly, you must have a good sense of humour  

For the last 2 years an anemone de Caen has suddenly appeared in a new bed I'd dug and put lots of compost in. I wonder if it was one of the ones the mice stole and a mouse dropped it. I hadn't planted it!
