Wild flowers

Don't grow Digitalis nutcutlet as particularly poisonous to cats and we have one (cat that is ) that tends to chew on anything as she doesn't see very well and negotiates the garden by smell and taste!  Same for Cornflowers Peter,

My word!  Wildflowers and bee friendlies have made a huge difference to the number and variety of visitors to our garden.  We moved here two years ago and took over a neglected shrubby type garden - some we have kept at the moment to add depth but other have gone.  We grew from seed bug friendlies and wildflowers and this year there have been loads of buzzes of varying types and butterflies in droves - none of them unusual but all of them beautiful.  They have particularly liked the Wild Marjoram, Thyme and Sage (which we let flower) .  We also let the clover grow in the lawn(?) and left white dead nettles to flower.  Calendula, Cosmos, Stocks have all been popular as well as Lavender and Verbena. Lots more to do, but we've made a start!

This appeared in the garden in about june. The first clump died down but it has now spread along and up. Good ground cover but I'd like to know what it is.

Fidgetbones - could you reply again as your post about it is lost in the ether

Hi Fidgetbones

Saw you replied to post but your words of wisdom haven't appeared, so still not enlightened - consequently trying again. This time without the pics.

Definately a glitch - had an OOOPPs posted.  Still not working. Frustrating as I have an unidentified plant and am no closer to discovering what it is!! Come on technies - sort it out for those of us who have a problem

Thanks Birdy13 - had planned to take copies. I'm sure that it will start up again after a week or two. Think the complaint is working for now. We have kept dogs in the past and never had a problem with them . so right, it is the owners who need to be brought to task

Am in the throes of a similar problem but not quite so bad,  Neighbours are unapproachable (according to all others around) and I don't fancy a reaction of verbal or physical abuse which I think would be the case. 

Contacted Environmental Health who wrote back with form and time/occurance sheet. We have 1 month to complete and if they feel it is warrented further action can be taken. They also contacted neighbour with complaint (anonomous).  Very quiet today!!  We'll see if peace continues.

Why should peace and tranquillity if a neighbourhood be ruined by one selfish, thoughtless individual.  RSPCA if animals are suffering.  Good luck

I'm having trouble uploading pics from laptop too. Will try cropping but I think there's a glitch somewhere

Fidgetbones - I think that young ladybirds are spotless - the spots develop as they get older. They change colour too I believe
