We've always said goosegogs and my family are from Beds/Cambs (with some distant Scottish roots )

Glad Verdun's ok - I was wondering  ... he's got a lot on his plate again ...

ID please

I inherited one in a previous garden - it made a lovely little 'thicket' about a couple of feet high - gorgeous.

Oooh LilyP - how exciting!!!

The blue sky we had earlier has clouded over, but the sun's trying to come back - according to the weather people the sun's going to win ........ I hope it's soon

 

Fidget - we love goosegogs here - we had some for supper last night, cooked with some elderflowers and eaten with lovely creamy yoghurt.  Perfect after lambs sweetbreads with broad beans and a cream and parsley sauce - how seasonal was that?

ID please

Rosa pimpinellifolia, possibly. A bit difficult to tell without a better look.

I'd go with that, on the information we have in that picture.  I love R. pimpinellifolia - a gorgeous little thing.

If you visit later in the year when there are some hips, if we're correct they'll be round and blackish.

Tomato Tree!

My greenhouse is very small, so my tomatoes have been outside for a couple of weeks now, albeit on a sheltered southfacing terrace. 

Good luck

Good morning all

Lovely jam, and lovely name 'Pippin'.  There's a Pippin next door - it's a cat whose life was saved by OH when it had a bone stuck in its throat - occasionally it comes into our garden and once killed a wood pigeon!  I'm sure Matty's Pippin is much nicer and better behaved

I've been sitting here for half an hour listening to a song thrush - he's gone off to hunt for snails now

A hummingbird!

The temperature in our garden today, I'm expecting to see penguins any minute, not hummingbird hawkmoths
