Hope your Dad continues to improve Fidget - sounds like he is keeping folks entertained.

This week has gone quickly - think they should all be 4 days long.  Weekend forecast getting better - just showers now.  Will get a chance to survey what is still standing after the "blustery" stuff of the last few days.  Good job i did my tieing in last weekend

Rain on its way here too - good job its an office day for me. Seeing the rose pictures on the Garden Gallery reminded me that there is a yellow one in full bloom on a house wall on my way to work - I'm sure thats not usual for May

If you rub your fingers against the leaves you will be in no doubt!  Really strong garlicky smell

Much more elegant than cow parsley

Problem With Pear Tree

I'm not an expert - but in the photo it only looks like the new leaves are affected- which makes me think it isn't a pest, but more likely a reaction to the spraying. Was it sunny when you did it - almost looks like the leaves have been scorched, which might have happened if the sun shone on water droplets.  They can always afford to lose a few flower buds, if there are still a few left on the tree you might be ok.  Fingers crossed

Not more snail-slaying Fidget??

Lizzie - meant to say on Shropshire gardens - look up the Morville gardens (NT) - I've read loads about them and would certainly pay a visit if I was up that way in June

Missed you there Lizzie - lovely to see Cecille Brunner - mine's a few weeks away yet.  And Shropshire Lad is another of my favourites - lovely scent to go with those gorgeous blooms
