It's the same with cattle - has anyone seen a field of heifers with 'the wind up their tails'?  

Oh lordy... is this a mass of ground elder?

Posted: 01/06/2016 at 18:43

No, not ground elder - looks like Enchanter's Nightshade to me.

If a "like" facility is ever introduced, I shall simply make it known that I'll never use it so nobody can take any offence ...........

It's the contents of what used to be My Posts - accessible by clicking on your avatar in the top right hand corner - they've always been there, just not quite as easily visible as they are now.  

Why have leaves gone brown

Posted: 01/06/2016 at 16:05

I have several of these ferns - I keep them in a shady spot - has yours been in bright sunlight?


Alternatively had it been kept in a sheltered/mild/protected spot and now it is in a more exposed site?

Are these new leaves that have grown this year, or last year's leaves?

Looking forward to the tiara Hosta   ............ and the curry 


Runner bean seeds are in their grow tubes and  are now sitting in the warm studio awaiting our return when I fully expect them to be sprouting nicely 


Bird feeders are all topped up, lupins and other wayward types have been staked/restrained and the garden is in as fit a state to be left for 10 days as it could possibly be.  Our neighbour will water the tomatoes, keep an eye on other plants and help herself to broad beans.  


OH has fixed the loo cistern which had suddenly become temperamental and refused to re-fill properly - he is now clearing up the kitchen and will tidy the living  room while I drink a coffee then go and pack -he is my hero 


Homemade leek and potato soup is simmering on the hob for our supper 

SAGE flowering problem

It seems quite early for sage to be blooming ... could the flowers have been frosted?

Welcome to Sunshine and Poppyred   


Miserable weather here today, but not as miserable as yesterday's.  


Just got to get the little greenhouse ready for neighbour to keep an eye on, and fill the bird feeders - then that'll be all the outside jobs done .......
