You see, my children don't call me Miss Marple for nothing

You're not the first one Tingly, and I doubt if you'll be the last

Verdun, I think that donut should be mine reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally

Fish thieving magpies!

Posted: 22/05/2015 at 08:31

That's the first time I've heard of that! 

Although we did have magpies deconstruct the edge of our pond earlier in the year taking mud for their nests .........

honeysuckle problem

Don't know about your grub Gertie - I take it this is the first time you've seen it on your honeysuckle?

I think the chilli peppers indicate that it's one of the most active threads.

Aha!  I think we can fairly safely assume that one of them is Queen Josephine  (centre back) and another El-Nino (back left)  - and you're probably right about Praying Hands

Put cold tea on mine and they seem ok (grown in pots) planted Queen Josephine, El-Nino and Praying hands last year and all made me smile ???? can't wait til they start popping through

No, the foxgloves won't affect anything growing around  them, your peas will be fine

I often have  foxgloves pop up in my veg patch from the seeds in the home made compost - if they're not in the way I leave them where they are - they're fine.

And so many are differentiated only by the flower or growth habit - I would have thought it impossible to identify accurately from just one photo like that.

Good morning all

Hosta, that's a superb bargain - almost as good as mine!

 

Anyone here in Kent?  Did you feel the earth move last night?

Avocado Tree/Sappling

Absolutely no idea Erik - I buy avocados from the local farm shop - lots of the stones sprout in the compost heap, but because this one is in such a sheltered spot it's the only one that has survived two winters - I'll have to ask if they know which variety they are.

How fantastic Nut   Lovely creatures - I had them in a garden in Suffolk which ran down to the little stream which was the beginning of the R. Blyth - flippin coypus got rid of them - I'd love to think they're back there again
