I'm growing the second one for the first time here - just checked, and the label says its a torenia (mines a purple one, but buds and leaves look the same).

Posting Issues?

Seems to be a common problem Steve .....interim solution is to change your settings to basic editor. That lets you post text, but no smilies (unless you know the keyboard versions ) and no photos. Means I will have to brush off some of my little used adjectives .....amazing how lazy we get when a yellow cartoon face is the way to convey everything !!

Morning to all the lovely people on this forum .

Nice long lie-in needed here to restore batteries

Happy Ruby Anniversary Liri - hope cakes (of whatever variety) go down well. Knew your CV would be tip-top Panda - hang on in there, your dream job is going to appear very soon.

Gardening on the cards for me this weekend .....visible weeds must go (others can get on with it til autumn :O), some foxglove seedlings to pot on, and armfuls of sweetpeas to pick (sorry LilyP). Was going to take some photos, as I am super pleased with it all this year, but looks like I will have to wait til Monday to post them.

Last night we had our very first GH tomato of the year .....haven't grown sungold before, but verdict was good .....yum yum

Morning All yet to arrive

Getting up not such a struggle this Friday I will have cracked it

Just having the last of our blueberries with my cereal - bumper crop this year - the netting really paid off.  Not long before the autumn raspberries start too - keeps breakfast interesting.

Furry sheepskin slippers on here too

Just watched Alan T (normally a fan) .....since when were olive and lemon trees hardy in Hull ??  Lots of shouting at the TV going on In our living room.

Then caught up with the autistic gardener, which was inspirational.  So I can now go up to bed with a smile

Phantastic photos  Some stunning colour combinations.  Particularly like the photos with the dark skies swirling - makes it look very dramatic.

And Harry is the cutest twiglet I've ever come across
