Thanks guys.  Winter - we got a good deal for bulk buying the trelllis, and put it all up ourselves ..... took many evenings and weekends.  But so worth it to be able to have an area where I can grow what I want without having to worry about Bambis. We are on box blight alert - just one box ball succumbed this winter, but won't be surprised if it spreads.  If so will have to start again with yew

HELLO FORKERS!

5 more series  Lovely

Had a good afternoon out there once the rain cleared away.  Gladioli corms planted, few more plants found homes, some cuttings potted on and lots of pottering.....bliss

Off to the cinema with Chicklet to see Far from the Madding Crowd tonight.

I'd try googling sheep sorrel images - that should help you see what you've got

Help identifying lawn weed

I think its sheep sorrell.  It is the worst weed in my flowerbeds.  Forever trying to dig it out, but it has running roots which get everywhere, and are quite invisible in the soil.

not sure of the best way to get rid of it in a lawn apart from lots of mowing - others might know

I'm told that in the old days they used to eat it to fight off scurvy

Nice and wet out there, but forecast to clear up shortly.  Like everyone else, we needed the rain.  Plan to get my sweetpea seedlings in the ground today, and plant up some of my recent purchases.  Everything looking very fresh and green out there - we have lost sight of the neighbours, and won't see them again til December (unless we pop round of course)

just been offered another cuppa and a bacon and fried egg sandwich ....would have been rude to refuse
