Morning all 

work medical later so not allowed brekkie or ( more important)  cuppa tea

first plum from our victoria tree ( not just this year, but ever) - littlest chicklet got to eat it - she is the fruit monster in our house- and declared it delicious.  Plenty more where that came from!

Plants to identify - grasses and some sort of monster

Many thanks - I knew you would come up trumps.  OH wanted me to go and hunt out the owner of the garden - I told him I knew a better way !!

Hi there -can anyone help me identify this grass:

 And also this plant - it was a good 6 foot tall, but looked to be herbaceous rather than a shrub:

Really enjoyed Sussex Prairie Gardens - pictures on the gardens we have visited thread - but here's a flavour:

 Now thats what I call a drift !!

Lots of plant stalls there too, so came away with a light pink sidalcea and some liatris, plus OH got some tall grasses with red feathers.  Need some stuff identifying too - will start another thread.

Great sweet peas, and wonderful baskets.  Still so much colour around isn't there.  I shall review this thread (all 78 pages) come the winter months, when I will need reminding of something other than dark and grey
