HELLO FORKERS!

Oooh LilyP - how exciting!!!

The blue sky we had earlier has clouded over, but the sun's trying to come back - according to the weather people the sun's going to win ........ I hope it's soon

 

Fidget - we love goosegogs here - we had some for supper last night, cooked with some elderflowers and eaten with lovely creamy yoghurt.  Perfect after lambs sweetbreads with broad beans and a cream and parsley sauce - how seasonal was that?

ID please

Rosa pimpinellifolia, possibly. A bit difficult to tell without a better look.

I'd go with that, on the information we have in that picture.  I love R. pimpinellifolia - a gorgeous little thing.

If you visit later in the year when there are some hips, if we're correct they'll be round and blackish.

Tomato Tree!

My greenhouse is very small, so my tomatoes have been outside for a couple of weeks now, albeit on a sheltered southfacing terrace. 

Good luck

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all

Lovely jam, and lovely name 'Pippin'.  There's a Pippin next door - it's a cat whose life was saved by OH when it had a bone stuck in its throat - occasionally it comes into our garden and once killed a wood pigeon!  I'm sure Matty's Pippin is much nicer and better behaved

I've been sitting here for half an hour listening to a song thrush - he's gone off to hunt for snails now

A hummingbird!

The temperature in our garden today, I'm expecting to see penguins any minute, not hummingbird hawkmoths

What is this plant?

It's likely to die if you move it.  Orchids grow in symbiosis with other organisms in the soil - they may well not exisit in the spot you move it to. 

You're obviously doing something it likes so well done

You may like to inform your local Wildlife Trust of its appearance - they like to keep a record of these things http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/your-local-trust

I'm sure there's all sorts of words/terms that some pseudo-sensitive souls might raise an eyebrow at. 

What about those of us who frequently turn a sod or two ? 

It reminds me of Victorians covering up table legs
