Hello happymarion ,  browsing...  I've just found, and lost again, your thread on 'Views' which you posted some time (years) ago. So pleased to find you!

When I find it again I'll show off my new skill at 'quoting' and post it here.

I gave up trying last night, read the posts and enjoyed the comments...

Having had a lovely time with visitors and visiting family over the past weeks it's good to catch up with the gardening tips and friendly advice. Speak later ....

Hmmm, looked in the good old 'The Flower Expert' book...find that I'm thinking of what is considered a 'front-of-the-border' Saxifraga umbrosa...flat green rosettes, starry flowers on 8" stems..prolific spreader...

now realise I have S.caespitosa overflowing in a saucer shaped dish and not knowing the name..thanks  lovely pink flowers in summer.

Works everytime for me TT...seen me through years of ups and downs...fiercely defend my gardening a time I am 'me'.

Hello Gerard, agree with artjak.

What a lovely colourful garden, all the old favorites to bring back good memories.

Good luck with the project 


Mysterious hole appearance in the soil.

I think a mole.

I've seen several holes around the edge of the my lawn  and thanks to a determined effort with a 'fence' of moth balls, not in the lawn. .

Noticed pots and containers looking wonky and digging around a bit could see that the soil was finely friable. i think it lives under the shed - that's the direction the trail takes, so I let it be.
