What put me off about poppies is I thought the smooth leaved sort were greyer and the green leafed sort are quite hairy with little bristles on the stem. I thought the ones Don sent look green and non hairy. But as I said, I don't really know.

punkdoc, my sister always goes to Glastonbury. She met the owner years and years ago when she was a militant flower powery sort of person on a march for rights for women or ban the bomb or something. Now she's the social worker who looks after lost children at the festival.

Was just going out to garden and the heavens opened.

Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

Clari, ironing socks so they are neat in the drawer!!! I just chuck 'em in. No one will see the socks in the drawer or on your feet.

I only like straight lines in moderation, prefer curves. I do like the lawn mown (OH's job) and the edges cut.

I didn't know there were white marsh marigolds.

The garden is looking very wet and a bit battered this morning. Not raining now but more is forecast.

Morning all, was sunny, now it isn't. Going to see what Mrs. G has put on the "neat" thread. I'm not neat.

Sorry, don't know, but could they be some sort of salad leaves?

I googled it and I think you are right, but it doesn't harm humans. Makes my skin crawl though!

It's a fun farce!

I'm not neat or tidy, probably overwhelmed! An acre of garden & a big veggie plot, housework, cooking, social life, horses, dog and not getting any younger. And I get distracted, I see a weed, not where I was weeding but elsewhere so first bit doesn't get finished and I'm bound to leave a tool behind, always mislaying secateurs. Or there is a rose to smell or a new flower out, then the phone goes and I never do empty that wheelbarrow, well I do when I next need it! I don't even through away potting compost bags, they might come in handy one day. And if tools break they get left in the tiny shed or the lean too in case I get around to mending them. Need a decent outbuilding for all the "stuff";
