Lesley has provided my first giggle of the morning Can't be bad
I like watering too - as you say, it forces you to slow down.
Stephen Lacey was a very entertaining speaker - learned lots too. Will have to have a think about plants to fill the scent gaps I have .....although the roses are getting into their stride out there at the moment, so this time of year is covered nicely.
Well I can confirm its gall midge - tiny bright orange worms that look like part of the stamen until you stare long enough to see them moving
Is picking the bad buds off enough to break the cycle do you think?
Looking forward to a talk by Stephen Lacey tonight on scented plants (Can't find a smilie with a big nose).
before that though, another day at those pesky mines. Can you all stop using salt, its getting hard to keep up with demand....
I think I've got it too. I had put it down to frost damage as it was only affecting the top buds, and the foliage looks healthy. Will take a closer look at the damaged buds in daylight tomorrow
Ah-ha Got it now. Certainly makes for an impressive flower spike ....beautiful. But in answer to your question...none like that here yet, although we are still a few weeks away from flowering here, I can only see single buds forming.
I can see beautiful delphiniums, but not the fasciation David. Where am I meant to be looking
Oh dear Pansyface, how disheartening. Where abouts are you?
Morning Lesley, Morning Dove Will the GC get a little look in after the food heroes have been awarded Dove
Thanks for the lovely comments about my iris - she certainly has pulled out all the stops this year. And also for the exam wishes - yesterdays went well, i think. Big one this pm for Chicklet, if anyone has any spare fingers to cross at about 2pm
Its that time of year when the morning amble round the garden reveals a new bud open every day ......loving it
Looking great Pdoc and Joybell. Love the red rose Pdoc
Joy, the delphinium is a gorgeous shade of pink - is that one from seed? if so, what a lovely surprise
