Ha Ha, , but computers aren't my strong point!

Absolute novice...

Andy, I think your shrub with red flowers could be a camellia. If it is, then you probably have acid soil. The one that looks as though it has spotted leaves could be aucuba, the spotted laurel. Not quite near enough to say with certainty. Both grow in shade.

Quick question re; Gladioli corms

I find that gladioli are hardier than one is lead to believe. I have some that have lived outside for years.

Posting the photo can take a bit of time. When I was new I thought it didn't work because I didn't wait long enough.

Good morning all. Nothing to report, just having breakfast.

What a lot, Bob. Have you a very big greenhouse?

Had a good lunch with my family, at least some of them.

Has rained a lot today. Pleased with the blue penstemon cuttings I took last autumn, they have lots of roots, have potted them on. One was big enough to take 3 more cuttings.

Good morning all. Rain woke me up this morning.

Farrier has been, horsey filthy - rolled in the wet mud.

I saw your U tube, post, David, but I've already seen that clip before. Carol looked so shy then compared with now.

Going out to lunch with son and daughter and 3 small grandchildren.

KEF thanks for the advice about the pampas grass. Think mine is 19. So, as I feared, dangerous hard graft!

Going out for lunch tomorrow with daughter No 1 and son No 2 and families. Daughter is visiting son who lives near me.

Talking of hoovering, my lovely second OH hoovered the kitchen, bedroom and sitting room while I was out riding. I must wash the kitchen floor!

KEF, how did your OH remove the pampas grass? I have a huge one by the veggie garden, which is a mass of dead stuff in the middle with a ring of leaves around it. I've heard you can set fire to them!
