flowers for digitalis

It'll be fine outside -even if it is covered with snow - it's one plant you really don't have to worry about.

My bet is it'll flower next spring ... and yes, you'll notice the flower spike - it'll begin to go upwards like this

only your plant will be bigger and probably have several spikes.

Don't panic when it disappears over the winter - they die right down and reappear in the spring. 

What is this plant please?

deadhead regularly or you'll get seedlings everywhere. They drift on the wind like dandelion seeds.

I saw a big cat once ....... about 8 years ago early one morning in a stubble field near a farmyard near Grantham, it was walking past bales of straw - it was bigger than the bales and black, I'm sure it was a 'black panther' ... absolutely no doubt about it.

Good morning Pdoc - good to see you 

I have to go out today, so as you're up would you mind keeping any eye on the washing on my line ... just a risk of rain later and there's a heavy beach towel ... it'd be a shame if that got wet again after getting dry .... I leave it with you ........... so kind

Good morning all  G'day Pat   Those pine comes sound interesting - enjoy drawing them. 

Today is fine and dry so far   I have a trip down to Suffolk to probate solicitors this morning, and then I'm meeting up with an old friend for coffee/lunch and putting the world to rights.
