 I thought this was a hydrangea, but I'm not sure now.

David......did you actually pick Mr Ugly up to out him on that white background.....urghhh 

 

Of course....how I suffer for my art!

I donned a pair of latex gloves to pick it up (wimp) then put it on a piece of scrap melamine out of the shed.

Could tell you how it was hissing & snarling, but I won't.

Anyway....I thought it was a good take.

Hi, Flowerlover

I don't have any of those myself, but have taken a look at them and they do seem to be very promising......I particularly like 'Carris', a beautiful deep red HT.

They seem to be Harkness introductions too, which bodes well as they are leaders in their field.

Moi?   No, as far as I understand it's part of its camouflage that helps deter predators, OL.

Whew!

I totally agree, Pansy....no reason at all.

Yviestevie -  it would seem that chips from nearby chip-shops, as well as bread make up much of the offerings.

Whew!

May prove a contentious subject, Pansy, but I visit Bakewell often (was there last Thursday) and have to say the town area around the river is absolutely filthy & smelly with the droppings from numerous birds who obviously see it as a feeding station.

This is because the public deliberately ignore many signposts asking them not to feed the birds for hygiene reasons.

I'm a chicken keeping country boy, btw.
