It's not doing any harm - just enjoying the combination of warmth and dampness 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all you lovely people 

Re the Games - does your heart good Dove, doesn't it? The podiums were made from  timber from the trees (elm) which had to be taken down during construction. There's a little surprise for the athletes when they go the airport to go back home. They'll get one of Scotland's most iconic emblems to send them off.  Hope the weather holds............. 

A herd of wild haggi??? 

Paolo Nutini???

Archie from Balamory???

.... Dove, I was reading about your tomato plantation, are many of them for cooking?

If we don't eat them immediately  I slow roast them in the oven with some Extra Virgin Olive Oil, garlic and sea -salt then freeze - a brilliant base for pasta sauces and brings summer sunshine to lots of other dishes through the winter 

Oh Verdun - what have you done???   It'll take them for ever to sort that out 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning Bekkie and anyone else who's around 

I spent yesterday evening watching The Games - some amazing swimming!!!  Also I'm so impressed with the way the Para-events have been integrated into the programme with all the other events rather than sidelined into another programme after most of the crowds have gone home as has been done in the past.  Para-athletes are athletes, first and foremost and it's great to watch 

Well, we didn't get the promised heavy thundery showers yesterday, just an insistent dampness.  Today has dawned bright and dry with blue skies - I shall be hanging yesterday's washing out as soon as it's had another rinse to freshen up after sitting in the basket for all of yesterday afternoon and evening.  

Think I'd probably better have a got at the lawns too! 

Fidget, sorry to hear about Hedgie, but maybe there was more wrong with him than the dehydration - as with other animals, they're not all born perfect.  But where there's one baby hedgehog there are adults and siblings so that's really good news

what shrub is purple flowered beauty?

Posted: 29/07/2014 at 06:21

Can we have a close up of the flowers and another of the leaves please? 

Identification ?

Suckers from the plum rootstock - the roots spread out just under the surface of the lawn.  Regular mowing will keep them as under control as is possible - there's nothing else you can do.  Herbicides will kill the trees.

Have you got any cherry trees nearby?  That looks like a sucker from prunus roots.
