Plant ID please

It is a campanula portenschlagia - lovely blue bell flowers in late spring, and it will hang down a wall if it is near the edge.

Great cake Ggirl - hope you enjoyed your day yesterday - glad to hear you managed to fit a GC in to the celebrations.

Fingers crossed for you Punkdoc.  Really hope you stay dry.  Lots of my colleagues desperately worried - but so far all have escaped damage - long may their luck hold.

Enjoy !!  Looking forward to the pics 

Feeling very jealous - will think of you all when i am tethered to my desk at 1pm

Raining again

Work for me - interesting to see how much more of the carpark has gone under water - the drains are so full of ground water they can't take the surplus away.  But only a mild irritation compared to the destruction going on elsewhere. Lots of colleagues live in Datchet, and can do nothing but sit and watch the water rise.

Well home counties have been well and truly hit now Fairy! I work in an office next to the Thames and it is all getting a bit hairy - but at least it is not my home. So awful for those affected. Hope Stacey and Pentillie are safe from damage. As well as all those in the SW who have been suffering this for weeks. Heartbreaking

Know where you are coming from Panda!  And there's me lecturing my chicklets on the dangers of internet chat rooms crossing over into real life.   But this is gardening, which is a much nicer lens to view the world than some of their windows

Happy Birthday Ggirl - hope you have a lovely (relaxing!!) day  .... With lots of cake

Sounds like a good plan - give it a go and see   My methods have only come about by trial and error - good luck, and let us know how you get on
