I came across this website and have exchanged a few words with its owner and he's given me permission to post a link here  ... I think it's a really interesting and informative site with lots of stuff that's useful for gardeners as well as those of us who are interested in the natural world.

  brains and other bits too being fried here Nanny Beach ... ordinarily I'd be at the beach or down by the river or on the Broads in this weather but as I can't get about due to this flipping broken foot I'm indoors with all the doors and windows open and the blinds set to reflect the sun.  


Hope you're able to get to get some sea air

Hi Newboy 


On the mend ... thanks for asking.  Still encased from knee to toe in a big black boot, but at least I can hobble about a bit now and wave the hose about in the garden ... OH insists that I take my phone with me so I can summon help if needed.  


Can you identify this?

I agree with Fidget  ... Chenopodium album ... aka Fat Hen, Lamb's Quarters 


A common weed in arable land.

Hosta!  


By the way, the primulas you gave us are blooming beautifully at the far edge of the pond, their roots bedded into the rocks at the edge.  The grasses are growing well and are going to look fabulous, and did you see my potted hostas? 


Fireworks is at the front.

I've lived in the English countryside almost all of my life amongst hedgerows full of dog roses ... I've never come across one Rosa canina with a strong scent.  It's described here as having a 'faint scent'.

Sometimes Rosa rugosa is mistaken for Rosa canina ... rugosa has single flowers and usually has a strong perfume.
