It's one of those plant names that sticks in my brain - wish more of them did - especially the ones I've planted more recently 

Have my Potato got blight ?

Posted: 24/07/2016 at 07:55

Warm and wet - perfect blight weather 


Glad your potatoes are ok though

Bog Asphodel I think - Narthecium ossifragum - likes living on acid moors.

Big Fat Hen.............how embarassing!

Posted: 24/07/2016 at 07:44

LOL!!!


That's certainly one of the Biggest Fat Hens I've ever seen - it would give my late Pa a giggle - we spent many many hours/days/weeks even, hoeing Fat Hen seedlings out of the sugar beet fields when I was much younger.


Good luck with the begonias next year and let us know how you get on - maybe some progress reports with photos so we can spot any alien intruders at an early stage!

Good morning all   G'day Pat 


What's all this about second and third childhoods   I'm still waiting for my first one to end 


The garden is lovely out there in the morning sunlight - and it looks as if the slug nematodes have worked on the veg patch - no more damage to the bean plants and the chard and spinach seedlings are untouched   Whoopee!!! 


It looks as if we'll be lunching out on the terrace with our friends later on today

Daily wildlife moments

Posted: 23/07/2016 at 21:49

A bit of a wildlife moment this morning - I was having a mug of coffee out in the garden, watching some juvenile blackbirds investigating all sorts of things, when suddenly I heard a loud scream and a frog leapt from a rock by the pond over into the undergrowth in the Wilderness, and the blackbird took off with an alarmed squark - I knew that frogs scream if being attacked by birds etc, but I'd never seen or heard it before - it was really quite loud.
