Hi sopasw 


This is a UK based forum and almost every regular posting here is a British resident ... not sure if we'll be able to help you with this one ... our growing conditions are somewhat different to yours, but good luck anyway.

I quite like Homitty Pie Obs , but those pork pies are really good ... they're made by a local farmer/butcher (in the picture) http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/metfield-from-the-pig-sty-to-the-pork-pie-for-waveney-valley-farmer-1-1680329 


Apparently Channel 4 are filming at the farm shop this afternoon about healthy eating ... last time it was about sourdough bread ... I expect OH will try to dodge the camera 

Can anyone identify this weed?

I agree with Obelixx 


As for where it's growing in the lawn, regular mowing ... at least once a week ... on a medium height (not too short) will exhaust it after a while.

Toulouse sausages coming over Pdoc    No humble pie ....... but a very good pork one has your name on it 


Dacha .... Sagebrush ... so a sort of salvia ... please thank your wife ... great arrangement.  I used to do a lot of Ikebana arrangements back in my teens ... maybe I should do some more ... they'd suit this 1960s designed house.

Hosta ... have you read Rose Collis's biography of Coral Browne "This Effing Lady"?  The part about her marriage to my second cousin, the actor Philip Pearman is so moving.  http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/reviews/coral-browne-this-effing-lady-by-rose-collis-397885.htmll


Looks like the weather will be ok for cutting grass and getting the washing dry today 


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaarghhhhhhhhhh!!!  Tony Blair on R4 ......... it would probably be interesting but I can't cope with all those faux emotional hesitations ............... and as for the broadcast coming from The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change ...................................... pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!!!
