Wonky, your garden's in the town centre and very sheltered - I think it'll be fine.

Our lowest temp tonight is due to be 9C, then on Thursday morning at 4am it'll go down to 5C - according to the Met Office website. 

Oh eck!

The Met Office forecast for this area is saying the drop in temp will be at 4am on Thursday morning - only down to 5C, so not much lower than the 7/8 we've been getting.

Hmmm - looks like here in East Anglia we're not getting the drop in temperature until the wee small hours of Thursday morning ...

Oh no.....not again...

I would rather give a tree a bucketful of water once a week than a little evey few days.

We've had a torrential downpour today, just as OH was halfway to the shops on his bike.   He said he saw a horizontal rainbow! 

Mystery plant

Posted: 12/05/2015 at 16:43

The purple flowers are tulips - you can see the leaves peeking out from under the other plant.

The plant in question looks like one of the eryngiums to me - many of them have heart-shaped  or oval  basal leaves e.g. eryngium alpinum.

five plants id friend or foes?
