Sorry to hear about the panic attack Pdoc. I'm fortunate in that I've never had one , but family members and my best friend have suffered at times. Glad you've got an OH who can be supportive. Partners like that are worth their weight in diamonds!

So Mr Dewdrops is having two birthdays, just like the Queen! ;-). W'll still expect to share his cake! :-)

Plant ID please

I grow it in my borders - the bees love it - I keep the lawn edged reasonably well and it's never spread into the front lawn - as for the back lawn, it was there before we arrived here

One of the oxalis family

There are some that are regarded as weeds; others that are regarded as ornamental plants - they all seem to 'make themselves at home;.

Morning all   G'day Pat   Happy Birthday to the birthday boys and girls 

It's a gorgeous morning here - blue skies, bright sunshine, birds singing, hot air balloon drifted by our bedroom window at 7am  - not a lot that's urgent in the garden, other than encouraging my late sown borlotti beans to get a move on - they've all appeared at the base of the teepee, they've just got to get winding upwards now  - so a bit of h****w**k as the dust's getting thick in the bedroom - then I'll scrape the potatoes for supper and settle down with Topbird and Roger on the sofa

What about "The Table"  but with an accent on the 'The'   (can't do it on here).  That would work in French and English.
