Morning all


Had a great day in Brighton yesterday ....no sun, howling gale, but good cheesy chips


Then back to sisters for a fun evening (had to excuse myself at 7pm to go into a corner and listen to the wireless) and back here very late.


Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside ......๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽผ

Morning


I suspect Fairy's robin looks more like this Pat:



Off to Brighton for the day with the chicklets, to see my sister and nieces.  She has just had a significant birthday, so am taking her pressie.....a conical bay tree and pot to put it in.  Being a gardener I am also taking John Innes No 2, some grit and some slate chippings for top dressing.  Think I wiil pot it up for her, whilst leaving the bay tree in its current plastic pot - she can remove it next spring.


Taking walking boots, as I think a walk on the downs is on the cards

Thanks - thats the one  Hope it carries on surviving in my frost pocket (neighbours conditions are the same, so maybe she has bred it tough)

Grass ID

Thanks - pretty sure its not H. Jubatum as the flowers emerge fluffy at the outset, rather than having the faint "ear of corn" look about them.  I will go and have a google for hardy penisetums (particularly now I have learned how to spell it) and see what I find.


Thanks folks. You are the best
