You're right, not a Cuckoo Pint (I'm on my laptop now rather than my phone).

24.6C in the shade here in Norfolk - a little while earlier it was 27.6C 


OH is just sorting BBQ out - I've been squidging vine weevil grubs among the roots of some donated pots of Primula grandiflora   Hosta, have you mislaid some vine weevil grubs?

It's a plant I'm very fond of, in the right setting - but you paid money for it???  I'm sure there are plenty of people on here who would have given you some by the bucket-load ...

It's OK Fairy - Daniel's just popped to the supermarket to fetch me the makings of some Pimms, then he's going to scrape pigeon poo - apparently it's preferable to dealing with us lot 

Any rock experts here?

Advertise them on your local Streetlife page https://www.streetlife.com/  


I'm sure you'll find a local gardener willing to take them off your hands - you're not anywhere near Norfolk are you (says I hopefully)
