What plant is identifiable to which member?

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 10:46

Good answer Dove, well thought out, but I associate Verdun with agastaches and grasses!

This is a hard one. But Chicky likes flowers and has chicklets which sort of makes me think of lupins. But I don't know if she's tall or short!

Dove's are silvery and soft, so I was thinking Stachys Byzantina, but I don't know if she likes it. She's just made a pond and that's more for dry places.

There have been several threads on this subject already and so many different opinions. I'm afraid I find Monty rather dull, his voice lulls me into sleep and he isn't not as knowledgeable as I would like, but I imagine he's a nice person.

Morning all.

We stayed in Aghios Nikolaos about 39 years ago! Must be that, because it was before I had children. I think my maths isn't good either, Clari, because I thought I was 27. We went to Spinalonga too, on a boat which I was nearly sick in because I ate something the hotel shouldn't have served the night before. It was October and was over 80°F and most of the beaches were deserted. When we got home we spent over 3 hours sitting on the platform at Gatwick station, about 45°F in our summer clothes in the night. First train was at 6am and everywhere was shut.

But we did have a lovely time in Crete. We hired a mini Fiat, like a bubble car, and the mountain roads were amazing, dirt tracks, wonderful scenery. The sea was clear and warm.

2 sons, DILs and adorable granddaughter and new baby came for lunch today, French Mothers Day. Lovely to see them all. Sons gave me a dipladenia.

Glad you had a good birthday Punkdoc. I looked up the Black Swan in Helmsley, looks yummy, lovely food photos. I know Helmsley, have an old school friend and an uncle in N. Yorks. We are going there in July. Love the Helmsley walled garden too.

obelixx, I think I must have similar taste to you then.

So sorry about the hailstorm. Heartbreaking, it's happened here before. We had a huge storm on Wednesday too, but not hail, just rain to batter the roses, but someone in a local village died when the roof of her barn caved in and several thousand homes were without electricity in Dordogne.

Is this Elderflower?

Use the open flowers, not the buds, but before the flowers lose their fragrance and start releasing pollen. If you shake the flower and it stays firm and no powder or bits fly off then it's OK.

Wow!! Obelixx, great photos. I feel I've seen more of the gardens than I did on TV when there was an awful lot of people talking to each other, instead of showing the plants and gardens. Thank you, you're a star
