One of the whole plant, one showing stems/thorns/leaves , one showing bud shape and one showing open bloom should do it

Plants climbing over summerhouse.

And come back and show us a picture in a couple of years when it's looking fabulous - we'll be green with envy

Unidentified cherry pest

Another thought - Harlequin ladybirds?  If they damage grapes maybe they also damage cherries?

I know the article says they eat fruit in the autumn when there are fewer aphids about, but ...

Morning KEF - while you've got your weeding hat on, could you pop over here ?

Suddenly afflicted Kale - not sure what disease/pest

I've never used neem oil and although I know a lot of people swear by it I'm quite doubtful - I don't spray my veg with anything - what have you been using it for?

Good morning all   I have been up and about for ages, elsewhere on here and in the garden.

Edd - awwwwwwwww!!!

Glad everyone seems to have had a positive day yesterday - too many events etc to mention but

Glad too that BL and her OH enjoyed their day - that pub is a bit special - and so is Woottens   Enjoy Bressingham and the rest of your time in Suffolk

Busy day planned today - a  beach picnic is planned with some members of the other forum I'm a member of - so shopping lists, cooking etc must be done, as well as watering and tomatoes to pinch out and tennis to watch ..... but first, caffeine must be taken on board

Flower ID please

Edd, he is a she   

Buttercup and Fidget   We got another picture - a better one, and Oxalis rubra - red wood sorrel has also been suggested - think we can safely agree that it's Oxalis - but without better pics it'd be hard to say for certain which one. 

I thought it looked too tall for oxalis but photos can be deceiving - especially with a lens that really enlarges things, which Chicken Hotpot uses.

Thanks folks

I think she has some more pics to ID - if the Wildfood lot are stumped I'll post them on GW again.
