Hello folks . Your kind thoughts are so very appreciated
Ma was sleeping comfortably. Her big bunch of pink and cream flowers included stocks and smells wonderful, so even if she doesn't see them they'll sweeten her dreams.

Thank you. Mine were here when we got home. I potted them up straight away and now they're in the little wooden grow house. Very excited to see what I get.

Thanks everyone, love a Bushman hug and as much coffee as you lot can provide please . I've not had a glass of anything alcofrolic since all this began at the end of Jan as OH doesn't drive and Bro's been away so much so I've been on call all the time.

Morning Chicky, Keen, any I've missed and those yet to come.
The patches of brighter sky have disappeared and we have sleet. Today is not a gardening day.
It's Ma's birthday. We're visiting with flowers - the end is expected any day now. She is on a syringe driver for her pain and more or less asleep all of the time.

Good morning all
Sounds wet outside. OH is blinking. Hopefully he will soon go downstairs and make himself a cuppa and me a coffee

Runner Beans

I think the Dragons Tongue might be a Borlotti variety. Try googling that and see what you find.
I grew them a few years ago and used them as a green bin and also as dried beans and was pleased with them.

Love muscovies - used to have them when we had the small holding. The ducks are brilliant mothers and their offspring are very tasty

Woodlice in wooden garden statue

The woodlice won't be causing the rot, just taking advantage of the fact that it's happening. I would treat the wood with a wood hardening solution available from DIY places. That should stop the rot.
