Yes, Common Ash ............ pull it out .................. our garden would be a forest if we didn't keep our eyes open for these every year.  

Amelanchier best kind

Posted: 20/05/2017 at 08:32

Last year we planted a multi-stemmed Amelanchier lamarckii ......... it's gorgeous and is doing really well ... lots of colour last autumn and it was covered with blossom last month and now loads and loads of berries are forming for the birds later on.  As our garden isn't large, we chose a multi-stemmed tree so that in future we can take the odd stem out if it gets too big ......... it also works well with the informal wildlife-friendly style we have here.

Good morning everyone 

LB your picture looks a bit like the view out of my back door ..... well, it being Norfolk I don't have mountains, tumbling streams and pine clad slopes ... but I do have raindrops everywhere sparkling in the sunshine ... think it's going to be a gardening weekend .......

Good morning everyone

Oh LilyP ((hugs))  take care ... hope it's better very soon!

I've just popped the tomatoes and courgettes out onto the terrace to get some sunshine ... they don't really get enough light when they're crammed into the little greenhouse like they were all yesterday ... but I may have to rush out and pop them back in again if we get a heavy shower .......some are forecast later on.  

Tomato Plant Concern

Think they're just too cold. Tomatoes need consistent overnight temperatures of at least 14C before they're planted outside. 

Wonderful memories

I have that book Bee G. It's been one of my favourites for many years ... Some of the planting associations illustrated in if are really lovely; I used to know one of the artists who illustrated the book.

It looks to me like a Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) aka Flag iris.

Perhaps you're thinking of Iris sibirica or reticulata Blue Onion

Isn't it amazing what deep and meaningful wittering we can indulge in when it's too wet and cold to play in the garden
